Hi Friends... This is a FIRST for me :) I have never done a Peek at my Week blog post...so bare with me :) I am not going to create visual plans, but I will show you what my "plans" are for the week :) I'm just amazed at my blogging friends that put together those AWESOME weekly plans with clickable links... I really wanna be just like them :)
So this week I have a TON to get accomplished....
For ELA will be reading the story Pearl and Wagner: Two Good Friends and we will be working on Author's Purpose and Questioning as our comprehension skills and strategies! We will work on my Author's Purpose Mini Flip Flaps for our Guided Reading Lapbook...
We will also complete my Questioning Tab-Its book for our Interactive Notebooks.
Next up.... Verbs! We worked on verbs just a little bit when we talked about Nouns, but this week we will get into the nitty gritty of verbs using my Parts of Speech Flip Flap Book.... I will begin this unit by reading the book To Root, to Toot, to Parachute and we will brainstorm a huge list of Verbs for our anchor chart.
Then my students will work on my Verbs Flip Flap book...
Onto Math... We are beginning our unit on Measurement. One of my favorite units to teach. I always begin this unit by reading the story called Measuring Penny by Loreen Leedy. Then we measure around our classroom using a "Penny Ruler"...my kiddos LOVE this activity every year! Here are few images from last year....
