Starting Over & This Week...

So, if you have not noticed..within the last couple of weeks my blogposts have disappeared. I was trying to delete/add various things and I must have told the computer to delete ALL OF MY BLOG POSTS! :( So sad! I will just pick up from where I left off and hopefully will find a way to recover past posts.

This week in our classroom:

Grammar Focus: Capital Letters

 Math Focus: Measuring
Inches,Yards, Centimeters, and Meters
We had a little trouble grasping the "Estimate" concept. We were guessing rather than make an "educated guess". So I created this page to help reinforce this concept. We first gather all of our objects. Next, we estimate in inches. Last, we measure in inches.
Complete the same process for the bottom half of the page but with centimeters.
We also compared the lengths.

You can grab a copy of this {Freebie} here
There are there is also a blank version where students can choose their own object. Click {here} to download.

Afternoon Lesson:
We are currently reading the book, The Wizard of Oz.  It is a very long book so we are taking it a chapter at a time. We are reviewing story elements as well as Realism and Fantasy

The students are retelling each Chapter as I record their info on the board. At the end of the day, I type up the information and add it to our "Yellow Brick Retelling Road:"

I am also in the process of making several printables/craftivities to incorporate into this book study. Here is a peak at a part of the sequencing book I am currently woking on. Check back soon for the finished product! :)
