It's Friday:))) Yeah! It has been a week:) Too many transitions for this gal who doesn't like change at all...lol!
You'll be happy to know, the octuplets (he he) have settled in quite well! I was truly fearful I would be training for weeks again......not the case. Now, it's not perfect but we are running 4 rotations and it's working:) What more could a teacher ask for? They have truly caught up with my "oldies" as far as all the activities I have introduced.
So far I have only introduced 2 Word Work activities:
They are loving these and so am I!! It gives them practice on those sight words they should be spelling without trouble but still have problems with and practice with sentence writing. A 2 for 1:))
(p.s. if you purchased these a) thanks bunches and b) the cheaper the dry erase marker, the better for easier clean up)
and Shake, Write, Learn
They love these to! (little man in this pic "forgot" to write a sentence with each word....he fixed that..lol)
I have introduced lots more activities this year in our Work on Writing.
Here's Rory's Story Cubes in action:)
I introduced the Story Bubbles this week. Huge hit!!! The kiddos loved them:)
These are our book cover writing folders. I have glued the covers only from book sleeves onto folders. Then I put paper in the folders and the students take a folder and create a story inspired by the cover.
My story stones:)
Here is the table with all our Work on Writing activities. (it just needs a cute sign)
The kids have several choices and just love it. And sometimes, they just take their writing journal and curl up in a corner and write without anything;)
I'm feeling happy, happy that everything is working out so I'm having a teeny, random giveaway.
