I cannot believe it is Friday again. Even more, I cannot believe Monday is February! Where has this school year gone? It will be spring before we know it. (wishful thinking) Let's dive right in and get into this linky!
In reading, we focused on the importance of a good picture walk before reading. Students used big books and discussed the picture walk aloud with their reading buddies. I wandered around the room and took a moment to see how students were using their hands and gestures to talk about the book. Here are a few photos of kids partner reading and book talking.
I purchased these #1 finger erasers a few years ago from Oriental Trading. I like to use different pointers for students to track print while reading. In RTI groups, students were practicing letter naming fluency using the pointers. You can purchase the pointers here.
Students worked on ordering numbers using various types of numbers. Most groups used calendar numbers. Other groups used magnetic numbers, foam numbers, and plastic numbers.
Stephany's class made these adorable love bugs!
They are from the incredible Julie Shope. Click here if you want to grab it in her Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Finally (not school related), but I received my order from Loving Leigh Yours! I ordered the cutest pillows. The pictures don't show the incredible detail. The latch button on the back is one of the details I love best.
