2. We are practicing recognizing and spelling our color words. Here are a few things we did this week.
Sorry for the sideways photo. I will try to fix that and re-post!
This is my old school rotation schedule and as they always say, "why re-create the wheel!" But I really wanted to give the true Literacy Stations a try. I just couldn't find a way for it to work for me and my thoughts on how I wanted my reading time to go. Here, each group spends about 15 minutes at each center and when the timer goes off, we rotate. Usually "Meet with Teacher" is one of the centers. I will begin my true guided reading group instruction next week!!!
5. This chart was made this week during our mini-lessons for writing workshop. I have purchased Mrs. Deedee Wills and Deanna Jump's pack for writer's workshop. It is amazing!!! We are on day 8 and I love every day of mini lessons, "try it out" time and share time. My kids are making some great strides and are really stepping outside of their comfort zone to write!!
