So I'm linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her weekly party of fun.
3. During the last TPT sale I bought Deanna Jump's Nonfiction Interactive Reading Journal (Click here to check it out. ) This week was the first time I tried it out. This particular journal was about main idea and details. We had read about baby animals in our reading book. So we did this together. I did an example using the elmo and promethean board. The students did pretty well with coming up with what to go under the tabs. The hardest part was cutting it out correctly. A lot of them cut out on the dotted lines instead of the dark lines. But we got it all figured out.
4. Back in February I got the opportunity to review some products from Creative Teaching Press. I've been using the materials for the past month and plan to post a review this weekend about what I got. This is just a sneak peek. I used these Chevron 6" Cut outs and made a word of the day sign for the door. I post a sight word here everyday for the kids to practice when they come in the room. Be sure to check back this weekend to see all the fun things I've gotten to try out.
5. I really didn't do a good job taking pictures this week of what we've been working on in class. But I do have this fun picture to share. My parents' neighbor gave these masks to Soph yesterday so we had to try them out with silly faces.
