TGIF! What a busy week. We have four five-day school weeks in March and have been busy bees! I am linking up my Five For Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!
The students completed their Natural Disasters projects in ELA this week and presented. They did an awesome job and were so excited! Proud teacher moment here! These are some pictures of a few projects. One group made an iMovie (with a lot of support at home) and it was so informative, yet super entertaining! It reminded me of Bill Nye. FUN!
Rehearsing and planning for presentations...
I have listed everything you need for this Natural Disasters project in my TPT store if you are interested.
Our Varsity girl's basketball team is headed to the semi-finals for states!! We are super pumped and today the whole school lined the hallways for a grand send off!
I blogged about using Post-It notes in this cause and effect lesson in Tuesday's Tried It. I used these Big Pad Post It notes (thank you, Joanne!) later in the week for students to write their own cause and effect stories in groups! We read "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" and I wrote the beginning of the story on a huge Post-It. We circled some cause and effect signal words.
The students had a BLAST coming up with their own stories! They moaned when time was up and I kept hearing, "This is fun!" I love that!
I finally finished my fables product! I have students write their own fables during my unit and I included many materials in this product that I use. See my posts here and here for more information. I also included multiple choice, short response, and an extended response to accompany two fables. I numbered the paragraphs in the fables and students need to use the text to refer back to when responding to questions. This is an important skill for the Common Core and I have noticed that the state assessments have started using numbered paragraphs in many of their questions.
This new product is on sale for 20% off until Sunday night!
