Peek at my Week and October Literacy Stations

     This week we are reviewing content and skills for our midterms next week. We will also be reading some of my favorite fall stories.

     You can download the pdf here.

     I just added October Literacy Stations to my store. There are five activities that cover different skills. I will use these activities as part of a mini lesson this week in whole group before adding them to literacy stations. The activities include:

Pumpkin Sentences-types of sentences (statements, questions, commands, exclamations)

Halloween Photo Subjects & Predicates-match sentences with pictures, circle the subject and underline the predicate

Monster Sentence Mash Up-combining subjects and predicates

Apple Singular and Plural Nouns-sort nouns as singular or plural

Monster Nouns-sort nouns as people, places, or things

You purchase it here. It is on sale for $3 until tomorrow night.

Peek at My Week 9-8-15

     This week we will work on identifying the main idea and important details when we read. Then we will use that information to write a summary. We will also work on fiction vs. nonfiction and sort characteristics of the two genres.

     In writing, we are still working on procedures for our mini lessons. This week, students will write about an activity they like to do with their family or something they did with their family this weekend.

     We will learn about and identify the subject of sentences during our grammar mini lessons this week. We are still introducing and using activities from my School is Cool! Literacy Stations resources.

     This month's character focus is courage. We will work on defining it this week and discussing our courage quote for the week. This resource was just added to my store. The link is included below.

     You can download the pdf here.

Teacher Week-Five Fun Facts About Me!

     Yay! It's teacher week. I look forward to reading all about everyone during teacher week each year. Without further adieu, here's five fun facts about me.

1. My faith and my family are the most important things to me. We have busy soaking up all the time we can with my Grandpa and brother while they are in town.

2. This is my eleventh year teaching. I'm not sure how that can be since it feels like I graduated with my certification yesterday, but teaching is my passion and I love it more and more each year.

3. I love to read! My friend and co-worker, Krissi Dallas, is writing this amazing series of book called The Phantom Island series. They are young adult fiction, and a good, clean, fun read. I just love them.! She currently has four published, and is writing the fifth one now. They are great if you're looking for fun, easy read. You can purchase them on Amazon.

4. My life verse is I Thessalonians 5:16-18.

"Rejoice always;
Pray continually.
Give thanks in all circumstances; 
for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus."

5. I love Alabama Crimson Tide football! I'm so glad football season starts this weekend! Roll Tide!

Characters Have Feelings! and a Freebie

     Last week we focused on characters, their feelings, and how story setting affected their feelings. On Monday and Tuesday, we read two different stories about the beginning of school. We charted the characters, setting, and feelings for both stories as a class. On Monday I modeled. On Tuesday I modeled the first one, and then allowed students to to tell me the rest and support with evidence from the text.

     On Wednesday we read Pirates Go To School again. Then we created an anchor chart about character feelings and discussed examples from the book to add as our chart example. Then students recorded characters, feelings, and setting from the book.

     You can grab this freebie here. The students did really well with this activity independently.

Peek at my Week 8-31-15

     This week, we are working on retelling the beginning, middle, and end of stories in reading. During writing, we are still working on procedures, and will be writing about something we have done with a friend or family member. In grammar we will be learning about commands and exclamations, and reviewing capitalizing the first word of the sentence, and putting punctuation at the end. I will also continue introducing literacy station activities and pulling students individually for DRAs. In social studies, we will learn about rural, urban, and suburban communities and using a compass rose. Our character focus is kindness. We will create an anchor chart with examples of kindness.

     You can download the PDF here. I made sure it was set to anyone with the link can view. :-)
