TGIF, TGIF, TGIF......Whew....what a week!!!!! Can you tell that I am a little excited about the weekend???? Well, after last weekend's Cheer Competition with my daughter.....ALL WEEKEND.....3 days people.....I am READY for this two day relaxation:)
The only thing planned besides the normal Saturday/Sunday routine is a quick Cheer Clinic in the morning and then I'm "good to go"!!!!
Okay.....on to the real reason for this post.....In Writer's Workshop today, I showed my Firsties a picture of penguins and I asked them to think about what the penguins were doing, talking about, what the weather was like, etc. One student drew and wrote this piece.....
Which I chose to edit via the smart board with the whole group. My students are used to their writings being used as a quick mini-lesson, so this student was NOT surprised when I put her writing up for everyone to see. I praised the illustration and the use of the word "too"....which was used properly:) The picture below shows the picture prompt that I gave them and the corrections made by the whole group for our mini-lesson!!!!! What a GREAT way to motivate the other students to look for editing opportunities in their own work.
Okay.....on to the FREEBIE:) I've been working on The CAT Man!! Unit for this week's centers and activities and here is a sampling of what I have done so far!
