I thought I would share what we did the past two days! First of all we started a new Lucy Calkin's Unit called the Craft of Revision. At first I didn't think I was going to like teaching this unit, but I love it!!
We talked about the first things a writer does when they revise or decide to revise their work. My students are only allowed to revise their work during writers workshop time, not during Daily 5. We are going to use Daily 5 writing time to just write and then during writers workshop they can put pieces in their revision folders and use all the new tools I placed in our writing area!
While I was teaching during writers workshop this week I created a writers tool belt, where I kept a pair of scissors, tape, and purple pen! (the kids looved the purple pens!)
We also reviewed all of our Daily 5 I-Charts! I was so glad I did this because the kids got right back into the swing of Daily 5 on Friday. They knew the expectations and did a great job!
For phonics we reviewed short and long vowels. The students sorted pictures of short and long vowels!
I have this on the TpT store for 1.50 if you are interested!
In math we reviewed addition with regrouping and mixed problems. Next week we will be in full swing of subtraction with regrouping! I loove Amy's unit for subtraction! She does a great job of teaching subtraction with regrouping and makes it fun for the kids!
I hope to start working on a Fairy Tale unit tomorrow for February!
Have a great weekend!!
