Happy Wednesday everyone! If you are on spring break I hope you are relaxing and pampering yourself.
A big shout out to Jeannie at Kindergarten Lifestyle for the k-2 linky party. If you haven't checked it out yet, you need to. I have made many new blogging friends :) Thank you to everyone who has found me, so that I could find you <3
I have a few cute ideas to share with everyone. I'm sure everyone is familiar with story maps. How about a high flying story map? I just adapted a story map "frame" to a kite pattern. The title and author are on the kite tails. I love kite patterns because they can be used for so many things (fact families, a list of synonyms, antonyms, showing an amount of money). Plus it gives me and my chickadees a reason to be crafty.. and.. who doesn't love cotton balls!!
My students also love word mapping. They love seeing who can impress me the most with the synonym(s) and antonym(s) they come up with.
I am off to finish my next unit of activities for the Journeys Reading Series for 1st grade. Why 1st grade you may think, when I teach 2nd grade? A total act of love for my hubby who teaches first. If you know anyone who needs resources, please send them my way :)
