This Week in Pictures and Links 1/30-2/3

Here are some of the Center activities my students are doing this week:
Stamping Short e words,  tracing them and reading them.
Stamps are from Lakeshore
Listening Center and a follow-up book from Mailbox a couple of years ago.  They glue the missing parts of the picture.  The book is about how a shadow is made.
Fluency Chart fromFran Kramer's Packet and review of vowel sounds (fluency) and sight words.  They love to beat the timer!
Building the short e puzzle from Starfall in a small group and labeling the picture with a word bank.

Our Heart Word book reading and then reading books with the Heart Word we.  I go over reading strategies with the group and then listen to individual students read.  I encourage using the strategies and ask comprehension questions.

Thank you Annie! I love your site too and can't wait to use the new graphs you mad efor the Short Books!


Where did you find your photos of 3d shapes for the poem?


Thanks as always for sharing your week! I love the variety and how you show specifics and your sources! The valentine people are adorable!!!
Have a great week!


Thank you so much Chris!

I'll add a link for the shape says soon as I can!


Have you tried the #2-4 in the short book series?


I have only used the first series with the red covers in K. I then move on to more traditional guiding reading texts in small group or more often individual conferences. I do teach some "bonus" sight words beyond the first series. How about you?


I have not tried #2-4 in the series but I am going to order to try with my more advanced readers. Are your more traditional guided reading --your basal series (I have Harcourt--which I use). I am also going to order the Rigby set you have mentioned previously.
I also teach bonus sight words.
Happy Friday!
