Don't you just LOVE Kacey's weekly linky party!? I sure do! I may not get around to posting every week, but when I have time, I love knowing she is always there to host!
November!? How did that happen!?! Ah, well...I guess I need to just embrace it. I am totally in love with my new calendar cards!
We took 15 minutes or so on Friday to celebrate 10 days of 100% perfect attendance by having a basketball shoot-out! It was a fun, free, and easy-to-implement activity.
I started a new high-frequency word practice activity to my students this week. They went on a HFW hunt in books. I introduced this activity to the whole group and they searched in books for about 15 - 20 minutes, but moving forward, this sheet is just going to go into their reading toolkits and they an add to it as they see fit.
I kept it pretty simple: 1) find a sentence that has the HFW, 2) write the sentence, and 3) highlight the HFW.
My students voted on which Election Day-themed book to read.
We graphed the ballots.
Note to self for next year: Do not use bingo dabbers. The paint smeared when the kids folded their ballots and it was difficult to tell which book they voted for. *sigh*
My students practiced writing high-frequency words in shaving cream...errrr..."Magic Spelling Foam." They loved it, of course!
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by! :)
