Better late than never. I'm linking up with the fabulous Ms. Deedee to bring you a peek at my week. I love this week. Farm might be one of my favorite things to teach and the reason I'm currently working on a ginormous pack of plans, printables, centers and more all about the farm. I should have it all finished by next weekend. Until then here are my plans, as well as a lot of farm freebies. Remember, you'll have to download my plans, then click on the pictures within the plans to access the freebies and units I've listed.
This is the unit I am currently working on, so it will not be available quite yet.
Now to rewind to last week. Last week was our Walk-a-thon week. The whole school focused on health and fitness. We read 2 books last week, Get up and Go and I.Q Get's Fit. The kids loved both books and we did a lot of great reading.
On Monday we made predictions!
On Tuesday we looked at heading and found important details in the text under the specific headings.
On Wednesday, we discuss fluent reading and how good readers pay attention to punctuation when they read. Students were introduced to the punctuation people and we searched for each of their punctuation in our letter in the morning. We also practiced reading the sentences fluently according to the punctuation for each sentence.
Here is a sweet friend looking for Comma Claire's punctuation.
After fluently reading Get up and Go, we did this punctuation sheet together. We then practiced reading each sentence fluently.
On Thursday we compared our two stories. Please ignore the ugliness of this chart. You can tell I prepared these circles at the last minute. I do love the comparing and contrasting my students did though. They are seriously amazing me! :)
And on Friday, we walked!
Our school raised $14,000.00 through the Walk-a-thon. Such an easy and fun fundraiser.
I'll be back soon with some fun on the farm!
