โ›”๏ธ๐Ÿ†˜Editing time!!!โ›”๏ธ๐Ÿ†˜ It’s time to start drafting! And our class is not talking about football. It’s all about the “NVSP” (noun, verb, sentence, punctuation). And the students are on a mission to help themselves and others edit their work. So after good purchases and finds at Walmart and hobby lobby for cheap hats and masks…

โฐTiMeโฐ

Time, time,time has been our area of learning for the week. For first grade it is hour and half hour. Instead of using the same mini clocks I have to practice our “o’clock and thirty”, I wanted a deeper hands on experience that would stay in the kids brain. That’s when the creations of making…

๐ŸŒฝPopcorn SightWords๐ŸŒฝ

I need more focus on sightwords for my class. So this was my thanksgiving break mission.  In small groups, each student will be given their own popcorn box. Then the students will take turns (in order) drawing popcorn pieces. The goal of the game is for the students to be able to successfully say their…

๐Ÿ“ŠDomino Graphing๐Ÿ“Š

Graphing, a tedious data analysis concept… OR a fun way to accumulate cool information. I choose the latter! I have a colored bucket of dominos and I put it to a new use. I put the students into four groups in each corner of the room (we call this corner grouping). Then I poured out…

๐ŸฆƒTurkey Facts๐Ÿฆƒ

One of our activities for thanksgiving was researching, researching, researching. We used our media tools, Computers, videos, books, encyclopedias, and observation and comparison. We then accumulated this information and created turkeys with our favorite facts we had learned. The kids lit up when they found out that turkeys heads change color according to their mood,…

๐ŸŒฌThe Mitten Sequencing๐ŸŒฌ

โ„๏ธI used the story “The Mitten” for a sequencing lesson. We had to take each step of the boys mitten being lost to a whole Forrest trying to stay warm inside of it. It was a picture analysis and writing piece that the students had to write in complete sentences after putting each step into…

๐Ÿ†๐ŸŽฝSUPER “E”๐ŸŽฝ๐Ÿ†

Our first grade team had been teaching sneaky/bossy/silent “e” for two weeks now and I decided it was time to wrap it up with some “super e” hero teaching time. And that is exactly what I did. I bombarded my closet and got to business on a costume. I was able to teach a mini…

I created a simple strawberry jello and gummy worms treat for their party! It was a hit and they loved seeing the creepy gummy worms crawling out of their cups. I also topped it with s’mores candy corns to look like dirt on top. It was something that even made the students want seconds! To…

๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿ•ธDigraph Spiders๐Ÿ•ธ๐Ÿ•ท

We have been practicing digraphs, and I wanted a fun assessment…the answer to that? SPIDERS, duh. October is the bomb, and I wanted to take it to another level. I created the body of the spider with a digraph inside of it (according to each students skill level-for example I had been working with certain…
