1Like so many classrooms across America our kiddos had the opportunity to vote on Tuesday. Nothing big and fancy just a discussion about voting and Scholastic News reading.
2It is heart warming to a teacher's heart to see so much reading activity! The kids grabbed their reading books and spent time reading with a partner. Of course, picking a just right spot can be a bit difficult to agree upon.
3If you haven't checked out www.sightwords.com yet, what are you waiting for! It has many, many activities you can create with the few clicks of your mouse. The word generator is great, Dolch and Fry words are available, simply pick the level your students need.
I like to create flashcards for one struggling reader to practice at home.
4Tasty Treat day is always a big hit with the second graders! This week we made our turkeys. I really appreciate the two volunteers that come to my classroom every Thursday, they do a fantastic job helping the kids get their treat made.
Hip, hip hooray for our school! Our students read 25 million words in the first quarter of school! The reward - Flashlight Friday!!! This was our first Flashlight Friday, I do have to say I wasn't so sure about the event but the kids really enjoyed it. I even brought my book and was able to get a few pages read between students asking me, "What is this word?" I may include this in my classroom incentives.
It has been a busy week. Now that I look back I didn't even include our math activities!
