I was ready for spring about three snow days ago. While I do love a good day to snuggle with my boys, I would really love a full week where I could actually fit in everything I plan. I’m so sorry I haven’t been keeping up with photo and fun ideas, but when you miss two days a week, all you try to do is cram in everything and catch up.
Last week, I planned a ton of fun our Mitten Unit. And, of course…I got about half completed. My students loved the book and especially the retelling and Reader’s Theatre. But I was also amazed at how well they did when learning dictionary skills.
This week I’m hoping for lots of Valentine fun with no interruptions. This week we’ll be reading, Love, Splat! And I do love that Splat. I created a small shared reading unit for the book. Today we talked about predictions. After I reminded my kiddos of the importance of predicting, we read the first few pages and they made their predictions. There predictions were precious.
