Teaching Health

Who has time?  It's a stuggle to get to everything you need to get done in a day, Health is a subject that often falls by the wayside.  Here is a cute writing prompt activity, it is an easy way to fit in a health assessment during your language arts time!

Reader's Theater continued...

As I said, two partner plays were really difficult to come by, so why not write some of your own!  Enjoy!

Sweet Treats!

We both have had the honor of being grade chair on our respective grade levels this past school year. We wanted to thank our team mates in a creative way. Courtney had the cute idea to make Rice Krispie Treats to go with the theme of "sticking" together. We are both so lucky to work with such wonderful cohesive groups, it makes such a difference day to day.

Feeling the Blog Love!

It's only been a few days, but we're feeling so motivated by all the great blogs we're been seeing!

We both love to make activities to go with books.  Here are some activities I (Katie) made to go with the book Corduroy by Don Freeman.  This books is truly a classic and has been loved by all my classes.

Getting Started

So we're new to this blog world thing! But we saw so many good things on other teacher's blogs we decided we should share! Here's our first activity....hope you like it! Here's goes nothing;)

The way we do our Guided Reading centers, the students work in partners.  We love the idea of letting our students do Reader's Theater, but could never find any that only had two roles.  So we decided to make some that followed different phonics concepts!  We included a comprehension activty as an accountability piece.  Enjoy!
