Alright get started already lady…here are my plans from last week!
Our essential questions….
Our main focus throughout the week was…How does the scarecrow feel about his job! It was so awesome seeing the kids talk and think through this question. Never in the book does it say that the scarecrow likes his job, but they were able to listen closely and hear the clues that told them that!
When I introduce each new letter I also read the Alphatales letter book! The kids LOVE these and they help to inspire them for our letter-sound poster. I think it’s important to remember that there will never be just ONE program that works for our students. We must be open to know that and willing to express to others that we need the opportunity to bring in other avenues of learning for our students. I don’t think it is fair to my students to only offer them one style of learning…a variety is what they need! So in my classroom I do a KinderPhonics-Alphafriends-Alpatales-Youtube mix!
My kiddos will be doing lots of the fun activities in this packet from A Year of Many Firsts! If you are in the classroom for Thanksgiving week this packet will give you plenty of fun and engaging activities! We will doing the thankful turkey craft, turkey true/false sort and more!
