Sharing my LOVE of Literacy!

I have been busy in my classroom. I felt like i had a good groove the past two weeks. We have been short subs, but the principal only pulled me once.

Here are some October photos and some from this past week. I hope you enjoy them.

October Fun:

Thank you Super Teacher Worksheets

The kids love reading and writing stories about the books from 
the LLI Reading Kit. 

November Lessons: 

I gave some first graders a spelling test with random sight words and short vowel sounds. This kid did perfect: 

I started a unit on sequence and did some fun activities with the kidos. Here is the chart from day one: 

In grade five, we are reading Pinballs. I used the book last year too. The kids enjoyed the story, so I hope my new class likes it too!
 The kids told me all three characters were in the chapter.
When they went back to close read, they said I needed to cross out one!
I did a week long unit on summary. 
This was the one we wrote together. 
I read the individual summaries over the weekend and this year was the best I have seen from this unit!  

I am preparing for some mystery words for this week. I did mystery main idea a few weeks ago, so this is next. I want kids to start using context clues for unfamiliar words. This is part of the intro lessons: 

I am going to make a sentence or definition card to help the kids
figure out the words. 

I added three products to TPT last week. I am hoping someone will download the free ones and give me some feedback.  Go check them out if you want. I am new to producing products for others, so I am hoping someone will like them. 

Here's the link: 

Happy Reading!
