Character Traits Anchor Charts {and FREEBIE rewind!}

I've gone anchor chart CRAZY!

Making anchor charts is my favorite.

And, I'm not gonna lie... I'm sort of in love with the charts I'm using for this unit!

I thought I'd share with you the one we made for character traits.

 We also read The Hallo-Wiener and added our thoughts on sticky notes.  Since I teach two classes, using sticky notes saves my charts so I can use them twice each day!

Next week, we're reading "Those Darn Squirrels" and "The Ugly Pumpkin"!  I'm ready!

We're using these packs to practice character traits...

Just today we did this FREEBIE and my kiddos loved it!

It's a full moon AND Halloween week... hunker down, teacher friends!

Sheet Protectors are a Teacher's Best Friend! {And Other 3rd Grade ELA Stuff!}

What have we been doing in 3rd grade...

We've been working on determining the lesson in a story.  I LOVE putting pages in sheet protectors and having kids use dry erase markers on them.  We read "Little Red Riding Hood" and students filled out a chart with character actions to help them determine the lesson in the story.  We did this in small groups this week and it gave me a good idea on how my kiddos were understanding this skill!

The graphic organizer comes from my leveled RL pack for 3rd grade.  We're also doing this page in our RRJs too!  Want to spice up your reading responses with rigorous CCSS tasks?  Click the pic to check them out for grades 2, 3, 4, and 5!

We also played "Carving Up Nouns" to practice common and proper nouns.  We had SO much fun!  I played with this little friend who could NOT say "common" and "proper"... he kept saying "prommon and cropper".  We chuckled so much!  Did you know this is a FREEBIE in my TpT store???  Click the pic to check it out!

We played my FAVORITE game "Back-to-Back" to practice lesson/moral using this pack from TpT.

This coming week, we'll be starting a unit on character traits.  We'll use this pack... new to TpT today!

Last thing...

Check out this fun new inference activity I have just posted on TpT!  Perfect for a Halloween week lesson!

Also... have you seen my cat?  Here she is... sitting on top of my computer desk and staring at me!  This girl cracks me up!
