Fiction and Nonfiction Sort (Five for Fri.)

I worked with guided reading groups on this skill.  We reviewed the differences between nonfiction and fiction. Then we sorted our reading books under each heading.  These were very quickly handwritten on whiteboards. But I have since made nicer posters to laminate and use for future groups.  Keep on reading!

Had to say goodbye to this display this week to make room for new projects... Sad to see it go.  I really like the way it turned out.

I'll also have to take down these adorable writing assignments about the presidents as well.


Trying desperately to get students to learn these words fluently. We played this bean bag game to trick them into studying!  We said each word we were trying to hit and pointed to the word many times. Then I  changed  up the game by allowing students throw the bean bag to the word of their choice- under the condition that they read it to me.
I did the same activity twice this week. I gave students manipulatives and put addition or subtraction on the board.  I want these children to become proficient with the two skills.  The first time it did not go so well.  I used linking cubes. Then I came back the next day with this.
After reading the book and listening to the CD. We were all really excited to try addition and subtraction again using groovy buttons! The motivation and success was tremendous!! I could not believe the difference!!

I am sure you are hitting word families hard and heavy!! My class really enjoys making the words with the cut out letters.
I am posting " ig" cut out letters here if you would like to use it.

The week of St. Patrick's Day we will working on "ug."
So we will be making another headband out of this:
Yours for the taking...
