I keep forgetting to take pictures of different activities, so here is my (very late) classroom tour.
The kids have started using the book recommendation board! Also, I know that 'student' is missing the e just keep forgetting to change it!
We did a small group poetry activity and I hung up awesome work..it was awesome seeing the kids looking for their work & listening to the buzz around the room zanier it, they were so proud!
The students get a 'just right' reading counts book on Fridays at the library & have the week to read it & take the reading counts comprehension quiz & whatever grade they get I use as their weekly reading counts grade. The reading log is a pain in the bum with parent signatures & all that jazz, so this is my way of keeping the kids accountable for their weekly reading. Working smarter, not harder (:
Reading skills board
Reading area...the kids love it!
Picture books organized by genre
View from my desk to the back of the room
I will post more pictures soon!
Also, does anyone have any tips for spiraling prefixes, suffixes, & poetry?
