We have had a wonderfully productive summer! I cannot wait to get back into the classroom and start setting everything back up! I was given a new title, "OCD teacher." I am starting to think it is not such a small club with all of the blogs I have read this summer!
Here are a few freebies that I have made over the past week! Enjoy!
This graphic organizer covers the first six skills we teach in reading - predictions, author's purpose, characters, setting, retelling and nouns.
For Realistic Fiction we have planned a week of Mr. Putter. They are going to love this character. After we read several books we are going to introduce poetry with an acrostic of his name. I am so excited about this school year! I took my girls to the dollar store with me and one of them said, "I feel sorry for your kids last year. They did not have any fun." Bless them...
