My students LOVE to write!! They even choose to write during inside recess! This makes me so excited as a teacher that they get excited about writing. I make cards for each month that they can use at the writing center to help them with their writing. These two friends were writing about George Washington!
I found this idea on Pinterest and then made these last night (I have the hot glue burn on my hand to prove it - OUCH!!!). I took pictures of my kids as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. I am going to put it with their writing that they did today about presidents. You can find the original idea here.
"Roll a Word" is always a popular activity at the word work center. I put it out this week and the kids were happy to have it out again. My students practice writing and spelling word wall words and CVC words with this game. It is great practice for word work and FUN!!
I just recently did a blog post about math talks. If you haven't seen it, check it out here. We used a math talk with dominoes this week. Some of them even put the math talk up to their mouth after they wrote it to look like a speech bubble! It just doesn't get much cuter!!
Have you checked out My Carolina Classroom?!?! Kristin is doing a great "Blogiversary Giveaway" and I was happy to help her out by donating a product from my store to her giveaway!
Hope everyone stays warm and has a great weekend!
