OK - so we've been doing a lot of Frog and Toad this week...
You can see what we did last week on THIS POST
We've been doing some sentence imitation, practicing combining sentences.
I wrote the top two sentences on chart paper, which they copied, then they had to write what it became after they combined it. This happened after a few days of me modeling it and them copying it. Next step?? Making their own...
which they kind of already did in their letters to their friend
(because we read Frog and Toad are Friends and Toad is waiting for a letter...)
and they addressed them and they are ready to be "sent!"
And they did some problem and solution in their learning journals...
And they compared and contrasted frogs and toads - real ones :)
They did the venn diagram in the pack - I chose to give them the one where they cut out the facts and glue them to the right part of the diagram, that way I knew they would have good facts for their writing.
They took the facts and turned them into paragraphs, and did their crafts.
They turned out so cute!!
In other news, if you bought the bundle or any of the individual packs, go back to your "my purchases" to see if it's blinking at you to download a revised version. I updated a few of the packs (I can't remember exactly which ones..haha), and added a few pages to them.
Check it out!!
And I wanted to share with you (FINALLY) one of my favorite things I do for our unit review spelling homework. This is every 5 weeks or so. They have different homework during regular weeks.
On unit review weeks, they do Spelling Tic Tac Toe.
I've gotten so many compliments on my post from over a year ago (and emails for an editable version), so I went ahead and made templates that you can print up and write in your spelling words...or have the students write them in (which would give them an extra time to practice writing them)
I have given 3 different versions - hopefully one will work for you!

This is version one, because I change up the activities every so often, so next time, I'll post version two.
OK - I must go REplan for next week now... I was all excited about the penguin activities we're going to be doing next week, and then I realized that we DON'T have school on Monday!! BLARG! And while I'm excited to have a 3 day weekend, sometimes it really messes with my mojo for work..lol! Anyone else feel like this??
