Weather Unit

We are in the second week now of our weather unit. The kids are loving it. I think their favorite part is checking the weather everyday. We don't have windows in our class so we get to go on a little 'field trip' and walk outside everyday to see what the weather is.  Haha. The first day we did this I opened the door and a lizard went inside! I am terrified of any creepy crawly things so I said to the boys, 'You are supposed to help me! Get the lizard out!' But they were all scared to help me!! So another teacher came down the hall and grabbed her papers and flung the lizard out the door. I don't think I ever screamed so loud! hahaha. The kids thought that was the best thing ever. So now everyday they can't wait to see if a lizard comes in the door--I think this is probably why checking the weather is their favorite!

 The students walked around the room to complete 'Scattered Sight Words'. They had to find the clouds, read, and record their sight words. They LOVE writing the room, definitely a favorite!
 Today they had to complete 'Cloudy Day Addition'. I am so proud of how fluent they are becoming with their simple addition facts.
The students also had to match together the rhyming pictures to finish 'It's Raining Rhymes!' Rhyming is becoming a tad easy for some of my students so this time I had them sound out and record some of the rhyming pairs on their activity sheet as well.
 Some students had the pocket chart center. Believe it or not, this was the first time I gave them scrambled sentences and it was definitely a hit!!
When she was finished unscrambling her 'Sunshine Sentences' she recorded them with her best handwriting. How cute?! ;)
 I am still using Deedee's writing center...and I still love it! You can find it HERE
