Peek at My Week-Fire Fighters
So this week we are finishing up Unit 5 in Reader’s Workshop. Friday we will have our Reader’s Celebration! The kids are doing great with their non fiction writing. I really think it is the Guided Reading Series that has made the biggest difference. The kids really understand each of the features, how to use them, and are now using them in their own writing!
Most of our activities this week are centered around Fire Safety. In our Sound Off activities we are moving to ending sounds—to be able to just isolate that one sound. We are using lots of organizational strategies to learn all the information about Fire Fighters. The most fun---making the fire truck brace map by making one with cookies! So fun!
I am super excited to start using Katie Mense’s new unit for one of our centers. It’s all about dice! We all have dice, and lots of them. So…you are good to go. Copy the recording page, collect the dice, and you are ready to go! You can download these plans (here).
This is the unit review for Unit 5. I have updated that unit with this new spreadsheet.
Now hop on over to Deedee’s blog to see what other teachers are doing this week!
