I’m linking up with The First Grade Parade to share my take-aways from Chapter 8:
Yup, I’ve listed ONE thing that I’m already doing. I will be sure to be reading every other blogger’s post to pick up some more ideas for this strategy! What’s funny, is the one thing I do to build connections is one of the very most effective…using Snap Words. These cards are like a secret weapon…I have yet to meet a first grader who hasn’t THRIVED with them.
Moving up to the top of my to-do list is to brainstorm MORE ideas… Cara shared her “Synonym Rolls” activity…love it (& I know my students will, too!).
We are so ready to welcome Spring Break – 2 more days!
Here’s our week so far in pictures:
We’ve been busy reading!
and expressing ourselves ♥
My student left this for me!
He told me I broke his heart, which is true…
I made him throw out his yucky apple core, about 20 minutes after he had finished it! He was NOT happy with me, but did a great job expressing himself (yay for language skills!).
Two. More. Days!
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Jen
