So the first week is done! It was a whirlwind! I have some pics to share of some of the units I have posted over the summer and recently. We read "Scaredy Squirrel" this week, and omyword the kiddos LOVED it. I highly suggest using it for those first few weeks. After we read we did some of the activities from my Scaredy Squirrel response! They turned out so cute!
|Our Scaredy's we made, with what we are not scared of in first grade!|
|Sheet about what Scaredy was scared of, a little comprehension check!|
Also, if you bought or checked out my All About Being a Citizen TPT, then check this! I made a schema chart for the unit. I wanted to explain schema early to my kids, and they really liked it! I had everyone write something they already knew (schema!) about being a citizen. They grasped it and did a great job. I plan on having this chart up the entire unit, and then to fill in what we learned at the end.
Check back soon I am working on a TPT unit about a favorite author of mine that writes about a cute yellow dog! :)
