So... How are my stations going? Missouri Day

Today we celebrated Missouri Day which means a full day of learning about Missouri's history and resources.  The high school's FFA came over with their animals and spoke about crop and food production... But hello? I feel in love with this guy.

 I digress!  My students were introduced to this game in my small reading groups.  Some students are ready to play it independently, but my intervention group really needs more practice with me.  I love that even when it was not their turn to flip over an alphabet card they were fully engaged because they wanted to be the first to say, "SNAP!"

 Little Warrior's Nocturnal Animals unit is AWESOME!  We love the bat activities.  My students are having no problem with using the greater than, less than symbols when comparing numbers.... not really sure why I don't have a picture of this, but will you trust me?

  1. Deedee,
    I love the visual posts. We start blending with short a next week. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear your opinion.

  2. My week is going awesome! With Halloween Parade last night and Trick-or-Treat Thursday night, they have been quite good the last few days. Your centers look great. Mine are very similar to yours and the kids are keeping busy this week and having fun learning at the same time. I love all of your pictures.

  3. Busy Bees.... I'm tired just hearing about your week!

    Sylvia~Here is one activity that I use: I write a letter on an 8x11 sheet of paper. For example: (a, b, c, f, h, l, m, p, r, s, t). Then I select various students to hold these letters. I arrange students to create words (cat, bat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat,sat, flat...). I tap their heads as they say the sound of the letter they are holding. You can make your struggling learner in charge of /t/. They will be saying that sound over and over. Then for your whippy kids I will switch it up... (map, lap, bam). I usually do this as a whole group activity. I make it go quickly and know that I can revisit this during small group. I hope that helps (I know it is very old school).
