Last week was just insane. End of story. So, here's the recap with my lovely CF-WHY post while I wait for the snow to fall so much that it gives us a snow day! I can dream...(I wrote this last night and pre-posted!)
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my room, and my word wall had to follow suit! I put up my Christmas vocabulary, and my little vocabulary elf, in Santa's Word Workshop! I made this a freebie, because it contains real photos from google images for the idioms. You can find this activity here to download for free!
I had an observation this week as well, so I was prepping majorly! I found this Snowman at Target in their dollar spot. I thought it'd be great to use for sequencing for "Snowmen at Night", and for sequencing anything I might have to this winter! Multi-functional Snowman! I used photos of the book that you can download from my google drive here for free.
The craftivity that went with the book was a fun one! I cut out snowmen circles from the packet for the book (download that here). I then cut out arms and funny hats for the kids to use! For my younger kiddos, I used sentence strips and had them write the middle events. For the older ones, I had them write the entire sequence.
Before reading the book, we went over the vocabulary and defined the words using picture clues. Here is my low-tech game using post-its! It worked out really well, took only 5-ish minutes, and the points were a great reinforcer! These were printed all from the packet mentioned above!
