2012

This is a cute Dr. Seuss packet that includes 5 writing prompts about different Dr.Seuss books. I included 2 covers ( color & black and white) for you if you want to make either a class book of your students stories or if you would like to make a book for each of your students using there writings. These writing prompts will get your students to really use there imagination. The writing prompts are:

-If I were the Lorax I would help the Earth by....
-If the cat in the hat came to my house I would....
-If I ate green eggs and ham I think....
-If I spent the day with Thing one and Thing two we would...
-If I met the Grinch I would....

Students have tons of fun writing about the silly things they would do with the Dr. Seuss characters. Happy teaching! Feedback would be appreciated :)

The Reading Race, Fluency Logs and Rewards
Feb
29
2012

The Reading Race came from my desire to involve and encourage students in their reading development. These resources can be used at school or at home.

These pages are included:

Page 3 Fluency Goal Bookmarks- I give my students a bookmark that has been copied on cardstock and laminated. We record their goals and then they use the bookmark for the rest of the week.

Page 4 Fluency Log- Students will read the same reading passage at three different times in the week and then record their fluency on the Reading Race Fluency Log.

Page 5 Fluency Rewards- If students reach their fluency goal by the end of the week, they earn a Reading Race Reward.

Pages 6-10 Sight Word Reading Race- Students will practice their sight words and then their teacher or parent will assess their ability to read them quickly. As students read the list, vary the order of the words. Record their progress at the bottom of the page. Download my free Take Home Sight Word Book for extra sight word practice.

Page 11 Reading Log- Students take a reading log home in their book bag every day. Their parents fill out the date, book title, and amount of time spent read. Then, the parents initial the log.

Page 12 Reading Log Rewards- If the reading log is complete at the end of the month, students will earn a reading certificate.

Feb
29
2012

This game provides students with a fun way to practice identifying and counting numbers up to 100. It would be a great activity to add to your math centers or play in small groups for the 100th day. 

This game addresses the following common core standards in mathematics for kindergarten and first grade:

K.CC.1. Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
K.CC.4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality. Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
1.NBT.1. Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
1.NBT.2. Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases: The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).

My Spelling Dictionary
Feb

2012

This is an easy way for students to keep track of their word wall, spelling, or interesting words the find in books.  Every time they learn a new word they can add it to their spelling dictionary.  In my class I use this book as an editing tool.  When they are reviewing their spelling they can use their dictionary. If they come across a word they dont know how to spell they can look it up.
