copy of her free printable!! I love her ideas!! I re-created the labels so that I would be able to create more bags.
They LOVED it!! This little sweetheart spent the whole 20 minutes of our Daily 5 round finding words and didn't want to clean up when the round was over! Thank you to one of my favorite bloggers for this great idea!
Our Martin Luther King Jr. inspired bulletin board:
With Martin Luther King Jr Day a few weeks ago, my students and I had some great conversations about equality and racism. For a lot of my little firsties, this was their first experience discussing the civil rights movement and there were many questions and thoughtful comments! We read a few books that I would highly recommend. The illustrations are vibrant and the text is rhythmic and inspiring (even for a young reader). There were many words that I had to explain, but that opened up great conversations. Here are my favs...
After reading these texts and discussing civil rights, students wrote about a dream that they have for our world. Here's a copy of our writing paper. I thought that I would have to really help kids this about THE WORLD AROUND THEM as opposed to THEMSELVES. I expected many kids to say things like "I have a dream that I will get to play my wii," etc, but my students' dreams and visions for the world inspired me!
|Students traced their hand in two different colors to add to their writing.|
|Amen to that!|
Each student has a 20 time slot each week to use our classroom computers for our "Listen to Reading" center. For the next few weeks, students will get to play Dr. Seuss themed games on Seussville.com! They love it!
