Glad that you have joined me! Every Sunday I share some of the best ideas I have found throughout the week.
How Characters Change
Tara from 4th Grade Frolics was inspired by Ms. T from Journey of Substitute Teacher when she had her students create a foldable to help them keep track of the changes a character goes through from the beginning of a story to the end of the story. Check out her blog post (by clicking on her button below) where she shares student examples.
Sight Word Guess WhoThis Reading Mama is a homeschool mother who shares fabulous ideas that can easily be used in the classroom. Everything she shares is FREE. On this post, she took a game from my childhood and put a sight word spin on it. Check out her post for a freebie, pictures of how to complete the activity, and instructions. I would use this as a center activity in the classroom. It would also be a great intervention activity.
Magical Product SwapUsually I only share freebies on the Sunday posts, but I am making one exception for this fun product swap. 128 bloggers were organized by Jessica from Mrs. Standford's Class to swap a product from their Teachers Pay Teachers store. Once the products were swapped each blogger used their family members (since it is summer) to try out the product and give a review. This would be a great place to start if you are looking new activities and lessons for your classroom. You will also find a ton of fabulous blogs along the way.
A New Way to GroupDenise from Sunny Days in Second Grade shared a new grouping activity she learned during a professional development. It is similar to the jigsaw cooperative learning method but with a twist. Check it out. She shares pictures so you have a better idea of what it could look like. I am going to try it with my third graders and my teachers this year.
I hope you have enjoyed "A Few of My Favorite Things" and come back each Sunday to see what other fabulous finds I have gathered for your enjoyment and to add to your resources.
