"Partner of the Day" went really well however! I am finding new ways to partner the kids up and they come in excited to see who they will work with. Lots of smiles and talking with each other. I love it! These are the tasks we did this week:
- sharing what you did on the weekend
- saying a word and the partner making a connection by saying another word (ex. "apple"-"pie") This was really fun and the kids came up with some great things!
- reading sight word/short vowel books from Starfall
- giving each other a quiz on sight words with whiteboards
- matching base tens blocks and numeral cards
Here is a freebie for Shadow Writing
Here are some of the fun/academic things we are doing this week:
|Finish dictation sentences about rainbows and add them to the bulletin board|
|Use this spinner throughout the week and change the activities as they are completed|

Here is a wonderful activity for students who are having trouble with segmenting and blending sounds. This is from Julie Van Alst and I have recently discovered her. She has a great website and blog plus a new TpT store. She is an RTI expert and she has quality activities for students who need intervention and extra practice. I have bought almost everything she has and I am making them to use. Please check her out! You won't be sorry! Here is a link to the above activity
I am also having my students make an adorable Leprechaun hat Found Here and "Lucky" will fill it with golden coins and candy on Friday.
Plus we will be doing a few fun activities for St. Patty's Day. Skittles math (taste the rainbow), an art project and a writing page. I also often have rainbow sherbet floats (rainbow sherbet = lemon lime soda with rainbow colored straws)
