Peek at my week Valentines! And a look back at what we did this week….
Each week, I post weekly plans of the things we are doing in our class. These plans can easily be downloaded and printed to make your planning easier.
If you have looked at the last few Peek at my Weeks that we have posted, you probably can tell that the first line on this page keeps the same basic frame each week. This makes for easy planning, a predictable pattern for the kids, and a few less gray hairs for me! We are moving right along, after a slow start in our Reader’s Workshop, just starting unit 4. I love this unit on patterns.
This page is for centers… on the top row what we are doing during centers, middle row shows what the kids are doing during centers, and the bottom row shows their “can dos” when they are finished. Like I mentioned in the other peek at my weeks, you can find more about how we manage our centers (here).
This page is our math time: Our mini lesson, what we are doing at our table, and the have to centers for the week.
This page is what the kids do when they finish up their math have to. The last row is what we are doing during our large group time.
Now what were we doing this past week? Here are a few pictures!
Fun with Groundhog’s Day It was a huge success! The kids loved making their paper bag groundhogs and writing their new learning in an All About Groundhogs book.
In Reader's Workshop we were practicing unknown words and reading smoothly. During this lesson we were apply all that we know about what good readers do....good readers look at pictures, good readers reread, good readers know some words fast. This is a lesson from Unit 3 in Reader’s Workshop.
Playing our new Magnify It! Game…success!!! The kids loved this new game. They used their magnifying glass to look closely at each small picture. After naming the picture, they look for the card with the beginning letter! They loved it!
