|I'm so excited to Link Up for 5 For Friday!! I can't remember if I've ever linked up before. You can link up with Doodle Bugs HERE.. So here goes....|
We started off our week reading this great new book on Apples. I love that it incorporates the alphabet, a fact, a story and illustrations all in 1 book. Although some of the words and content were higher than my first graders could read independently--As a read aloud it was perfect and we learned A LOT About apples.
|This Apple template is from Kathryn Robinson "Just Write All Year Long" for 1st grade. I have used this Apple book for 7 years!!!! I absolutely love how she writes her lesson plans and has templates for everything!!!|
Last but certainly not least are the Easy Daysies Magnetic classroom schedule cards. Creative Teaching Press is known for amazing products. These are no different. They were created by a mom and teacher. Here is something you can use in the classroom and they have Easy Daysies for Moms too! They also sent me a starter kit to use with my own children. It's funny--I can schedule my class of 18 and keep up with a routine, but at home with only 2 it just not the same as my classroom. My children can read, but the magnetic schedule cards all have pictures as well. The kinesthetic aspect was no accident. My kids have to physically move the card over to the Done side once an activity is complete.
