So I realized that I have taken all of these pictures in my class of things we have been working on and hadn’t posted them yet! So here is the run down! I will be brief! In LA we have been really concentrating on nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
My kids do well with these concepts individually but when it comes to all 3 it gets challenging! We worked on my adjectives mini unit and they did some sorting between adjectives and nouns.
We also worked on recognizing verbs. The kids used the anchor charts to help them with sorting in centers. We also worked on some graphic organizers and mimio interactive lessons that went along with these subjects.
In math we have been working on 3D shapes and graphing. We have had a ball with 3D shapes! There are so many lessons that you can do with it so we have really been working hard on those!
My kids loved the graphing activities! It took a long time to make but it was worth it! They really were able to comprehend how using data on a tally table relates to graphs. These centers really helped to reinforce that.
And a great pinterest idea! I saw this and thought I would try it.
I used this touch light during small reading groups, when the light is on students cannot approach me or interrupt. When the light is off they can ask questions which is usually when I transition between groups. My kids loved it and it was only $1.00 at dollar tree!!
