Hey, Bloggy Friends!
I am linking up with my good friend
Deidre @ A Burst of First
For a new LINKY!
This week it's all about
It's THAT time of YEAR...
The sun is shining, kids are wiggly, everyone's mind wanders to watching the butterflies, running in the grass, & jumping in the pond.
We have testing coming up!
End of the YEAR graduations!
School is NOT OVER!
YOU MUST GO TO SCHOOL!
But..my bag of "tricks" is getting
I have tried everything.
I have used all of my tools.
What do I do next?
Well, we are here to help.
For the next 6 weeks we will give you links to suggested
"tricks" that will help us all
get through the EOY ( End of the Year )
without..pulling our hair out!
So this week..
My kiddos are really struggling with
They can tell me what an adjective is, they can give me examples, they can sort them from nouns & verbs...
BUT THEY DON'T ADD THEM IN THEIR WRITING!
I have created a SPRING Center
Word Work & Fluency Practice
Daily Fluency Practice...
Do your kids practice reading daily?
THEY NEED TO!
They need to practice reading repeated text
OVER & OVER & OVER!
This packet has 30...
different sentences for FLUENCY practice
each sentence has an ADJECTIVE
ENLARGED for effective Grammar Practice!
So my kiddos take 5 strips
(I have laminated & cut them into strips).
back to their seats ( independent practice).
First, they read all 5 to themselves.
Then they choose their favorite 3.
They write their FAV 3 in their
Word Work journals..
Then they get to take 1 marker from the writing center back to their seat.
They HIGHLIGHT the ADJECTIVE
in their 3 FAV sentences.
(Then put the cap back on marker & return it to writing center!)
Next, read ALL 5 sentence strips AGAIN!
After they are done...they choose their MOST FAV sentence.
JUST 1...and they read it to a partner.
They need to tell their partner which word is the
Then they go to our class ADJECTIVE chart..
and add THEIR favorite adjective to the chart.
Our chart has "doubles" because..
SOMETIMES WE ALL LIKE THE SAME WORD!
So...read it again, and again, and again!
( Get the idea? )
Kids LOVE this...Choices...practice...and they share with each other!
ME? I choose 1-2 kids a day to read with me their top 3 FAV's.
