We are on a roll! I am introducing a lot of new things this week, I can't wait!
We are ready to start Listen to Reading in our Daily Five rotations (one of their favorites!) and we are starting our Fluency Routine too at the end of Read to Self/ Read to Someone rotation.
We are continuing our discussions on cooperation with our
Question of the week:
How do you cooperate at home?
This makes for great conversations during Writer's Workshop.
Which reminds me, we are introducing notebooks this week too.
I told you, so many new things this week!
Last week I said I wouldn't do visual plans anymore....well I guess I lied. I did change up my layout a little bit to make them one page only.
In our Morning Word Work we are continuing working on writing our name, letters O, P, Q, R, S, and first sound fluency. By the end of next week we will have the whole alphabet introduced and then we will go back and really dive into each letter.
Our word work stations are growing weekly. We have writing activities from my Plaidypus Lost unit and listening station response sheets as well as some alphabet activities. I made play dough last week so we will use that all week in word work too with some ABC Play dough Mats.
I also added some centers for ABC practice and writing fun from my All Set? You Bet! unit.
In Writer's Workshop I am following some of my favorite plans from Jessica Meacham to introduce our notebooks. We have been writing on separate sheets each day while I figure out my groups and teach all of our procedures. They are ready for notebooks.....
I'm excited for them to have their notebooks!
And last but not least I am about half way through Unit 1 of Guiding Kinders by Deanna Jump and Deedee Wills. I continue to love this, it's such a great math routine and each concept is introduced so carefully. We introduced math journals last week so we will be continuing with those this week too.
Here are the links for all the products I am using this week!
That's our week! Can you believe we fit in all of this in 2 hours and 45 minutes? Crazy right? I know I feel a little crazy by the end of the day and my little ones can barely keep their eyes open. Gotta love Kindergarten in August!
Link up with Deedee at Mrs. Wills' Kindergarten to share your visual lesson plans! I did!
