This is a pic of half a page. I also let the kids draw pics if it will help them.
This is a whole page.....sorry it doesn't show up very well:/
These really help the kids grasp an understanding of the vocab. They also pull these out to use during writing to add to their narratives.
A few days ago I blogged about the great idea I had seen using the laser fingers. Well, I have been using them during guided reading only and the kids are LOVING them!!
Got them at Dollar Tree!! Best thing everrrrrrr!!
I also wanted to blog about a super cute idea I started using today during Daily 5. I got the idea and worksheet from Pitner's Potpourri. If you haven't been to Mary's blog you have to pop in. She has lots of wonderful FREE downloads. She shares all her ideas and they are great!! I wanted to do some fun activities to do with Halloween and I found this adorable Creepy Creatures writing activity at her blog. I'm posting some pics as a teaser......if you want to read more about it, check it out here:)
If you look closely, you will see "creepy creatures" on the students desks and papers.....they loved this and it fit in perfectly with Work on Writing for Daily 5.
Daughter ankle update (totally non-teacher related....sorry)
This pic freaked me out!! I thought it was broken, infected, falling off........just kidding but it did freak me out!
Good news: had an x-ray today and nothing is broken.....
Bad news: she tore all 3 ligaments and has nerve damage:,( Huge bummer! Out for the rest of the indoor season and lots of therapy to work towards beach season. That lovely black thing they called a swelling squid.....kinda looks like it doesn't it? She is now in a air cast. So hard on mommy to be 2 hours away!!!
Happy Monday Everyone!!
