Now on to the pictures....
This week we are full swing into to workshop. The kiddos tackled their favorite (at the moment anyway) must do; making real and non-sense words with their letter cards. I am in LOVE with this must do because it requires no copying at all! YES!
I taught the kiddos to pull out 6-10 (depending on their level) consonant cards and I give them the word family ending. Then they turn their cards one at a time, add it to the word family ending and circle the words that are real. Let me just say ... it's magical!
We are also working on finishing our No David! Peacemakers/Peacebreakers unit. I did this last year courtesy of Cara Carroll at the 1st Grade Parade. But this year I changed it up a bit to include a directed art drawing. I love the way the students so easily connect to David. It makes discussing rules and behaviors much easier!
|These are a few of their Davids. Aren't they funny. The sticky has their advice to David. My printer was down today :( so we will finish this project up tomorrow.|
And as I mentioned before we are going apple crazy for the next couple of weeks. Today we did an apple circle map, tomorrow parts of the apple and apple art later this week! Busy Busy!
And have you seen those lap folders around pinterest? Well I am on board! and I am planning one for my apple unit. The pieces are all created and I can't wait to share it when its finished. For now, here's a sneak peek!
