Looking down the hallway at all the ‘puddles’ to jump over. All puddles with sight words learned this year.
What a joy to see the growth and learning and excitement!
Looking forward to the journey that lies ahead.

Re-reading for Fluency

A focus this week: fluency and sight words. A big part of this is re-reading. Sometimes I find that a challenge, especially with older children.

Daily Five Working With Words

Activities include working with sight words (different levels and different games are provided), practicing weekly spelling words, phonics types of exercises and word challenges like BOGGLE.

Try it First! Transition Words

We know we should take the time but we just don’t. Our explanations and lessons would be so much better if we did. We need to try activities before we ask our students to do them.

I found this Christmas activity that I will ask kids to do in partners. It targets sight words and transition words. I tried it first myself to figure out strategies I would suggest for students that seem overwhelmed by the task. I think I will give students the title and some blank cards so that they can add words. I realized that I first picked out the transition words so I decided I will first teach a mini lesson on transition words and ask students to identify the transition words in their packet of words.

Trying the activity myself will definitely affect how I approach this lesson.

The activity is from an ESL site: Bogglesworld
The transition words chart is from Reading Rockets
