My voice is getting stronger, my connections are there, and I read stories well. Woohoo! Morning work for students is already made (Literacy and Math) but because the math sheets are somewhat unrelated, teachers create their own math (or science) to be on the back of the Literacy form. I am now being able to create forms, so I will be adding them on to here.
I taught Phonemic Awareness/Phonics yesterday. Overplanned it by a mile. It should be quick, snappy, go-go-go. Students need to be reminded to speak in complete sentences. When they do so, they remember to use the vocabulary word; if not, they explain or share an idea without ever using the vocabulary word.
Students work on addends of 5 (1+4, 2+3, 3+2, 4+1) and write numbers/draw pictures/both in each crate. Students work on addends of 6 on the other side.
Students choose a pattern and create it using either colors, designs, or both.
