Teddy Bear Day

Teddy Bear Day was a big hit. We read books about teddy bears, measured our bears with unifix cubes, wrote a class book introducing our bears, graphed gummy bears colors, and even wrote a fictional story about our bears coming to life! It was a fun but educational day!

Read to Self and Work on Writing

In our room, the students will have a choice between 5 literacy activities each day. We call these the Daily 5: Read to Self, Work on Writing, Word Work, Read to Someone, and Listen to Reading. We have begun learning routines and building stamina for the first two.

Reading to yourself is way more fun if you use a whisper phone!

Writing has been particularly exciting since I put out stickers for the students to write stories about.
