With two weeks and one day of school left, I am still plugging away with my students. Here's a peek at next week's plans!
Grades 3 and 4: I tested 4th grade last week, so while they are on their field trip, 3rd grade gets to be my testing specimens. Then we'll have a little fun in the sun, and hopefully finish reading The Chocolate Touch, which they are loving so very much. I'm planning a Reader's Theater for the week after- get excited!
Grade 1: Did you ever read Bialosky's Special Picnic when you were a kid? It was one of my favorites. I have to dig it out of my parents' attic when I go to their house this weekend. It's picnic week for our 1st grade Storytown Guided Reader, so picnic we shall!
Grade 2: We just finished reading Poppleton, which was so much fun to read with my three boys. They ate up Poppleton's vocabulary- he says things like, "What fun!" and "Certainly." Now my boys say those words too and it's adorable. Anyway, with two weeks left I'm not going to start a new GR with them. Instead, we'll do a compare and contrast lesson from my friend Amy to get them ready for 3rd grade.
Grades 7 and 8: Oh my goodness. This is the research project from H.E. double hockey sticks- it's mandatory for the whole middle school. Luckily I have been using this great pack from Smart Chick, called "How to Write a Research Report." It has saved my sanity! What would we do without TPT?
I'm so excited to work on my Lookin' Fine in the Sunshine glyph with my students! I want to have a nice bright bulletin board for summer school, and my students are pumped to design their own sunglasses!
Enjoy your weekend!
