I can’t believe it is only Tuesday! We have made major progress this week! Insert happy dance for this teacher! I introduced word work with the Raking Up Leaves activity and today we learned our first Sight Word Stick Center! House of sticks was highly popular and perfect for my new little firsties!
We are in the midst of studying insects…So this week a great Eric Carle book study is just what we needed! We used this for our reading response today. First we did this chart together…next the students made their own.
We also created apple models and labeled them. I bought paper plates in the three colors and shrunk the freebie labels I got from What the Teacher Wants. ((Thanks Ladies!))
The apple fact and opinion also came from What the Teacher Wants.
