The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are working on comprehension skills. They have been working on main idea and sequence for the past few weeks. On Thursday, they enjoyed playing board games that challenged their comprehension and allowed them to work in partners!
The 1st and 2nd grade students participate in Math Mondays! This week, they played Roll It, Tic Tac Toe to practice addition facts. The smiles and laughs were constant!
Each week, the first grade students practice their spelling words in my classroom. Yesterday, they practiced putting the words in alphabetical order and cracking codes using beginning sounds from pictures. Sometimes, we will write the words in shaving cream, Play-Doh, or play Sparkle, too!
My fifth grade walk-to group is working on finding the main idea and details. To promote movement, I taped task cards in the elementary hallway. They walk from card to card and answer the questions provided. They love moving around!
These first grade students enjoyed playing Flyswatter Find with their sight words. The giggles were endless!!
This week, the students got to use bingo daubers to practice matching uppercase and lowercase letters. The older students also used the daubers to determine if words were real or nonsense. They loved using these instead of crayons or markers!
The second grade students got to practice their weekly spelling words by writing them in shaving cream. They loved making a mess and didn't even realize that they were learning at the same time. I loved this activity as it also cleaned my tables! (:
The third grade students are working on reading fluency (speed and accuracy). They worked with a partner to do one-minute timed readings. Each time, they get better and their confidence boosts!
The second graders have been practicing their sight words, so we played a friendly game of Go-Kart Rally! It was a lot of fun!
The first graders completed more sight word puzzles this week! They are really getting the hang of working together to learn!
