It's time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for our weekly five for Friday!
Our first Easter as a married couple. Rosco was not cooperating for the camera...
Not to mention it's difficult when someone is not there to take the stinkin picture!
We did a literature unit for Eric Carle's "The Tiny Seed."
I broke the students into pairs and they had to retell the events in the story.
We also used evidence from the text to explain why you couldn't plant seeds in certain places such as the desert, ocean, etc.
I'm REALLY curious...how do you teach your literacy block? I would LOVE to know what kinds of books you use, how you use them, etc.
In math we are working on fractions. I used this sort from my Fantastic Fractions pack to help distinguish shapes that are truly partitioned into quarters and those that were not.
Then we completed a similar sort in our interactive notebooks.
Once that was completed, the students had to actually partition the shapes themselves.
On the front of each flap they had to practice writing the fraction.
And today, we went on the most precious, sweetest field trip...
We went to a nursery to pick strawberries!
Each student received their own basket and they got to pick and pick!
It was the most adorable thing and my little friends were so well behaved!
I was a proud teacher!
If y'all have any advice about your literacy block I'd love to hear it!
Don't forget to link up!
