A Peek at our Week!

This week has flown by!  I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already!  We're "boom-booming" for snow already... we're under a winter weather advisory until tomorrow morning.  BOOM BOOM!

So, here's what we've been working on...

I'm doing THEME with my small groups this week and they are really getting it!  It makes a teacher's heart happy!  We did this graphic organizer from my Graphic Organizers for Big Kids pack and it really helped them process their thinking.  The books from our reading series were perfect for theme this week and it fit in so well with our whole class learning as we'll start talking about theme next week!
One of my sweeties wrote in the last box (So the author really wants me to know that...), "You should never fight evil with evil.  And I mean never.  And if someone is mean to you, you should be nice to them.  Always.  And I mean always."  He filed his paper away before I thought to snap a picture, but I had a huge laugh on the inside!

Whole group, we're doing a fairy tale genre study to help us compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories with similar characters.  Here's the chart we're making- each student is making their own too.

And we're also studying linking verbs.  Today we played Dino Race and had a fun time!

Hope your week is flying by too... TGIF... T!

We have had TONS of snow this year, but of course, the load always come on the weekend! YUCK! I'll wear my pj's inside out for you tonight and flush some icecubes down the toilet :)


  4. What great ideas. Don't you just love it when a kid writes something that makes you smile and laugh.
