The setting is the beach so we all dressed in swimsuits for school.
The day started with our Mystery Box~ 3 clues and lots of guessing... a seashell.
After reading the story, we wrote about visiting our grandma (Memommy) and they were priceless!
EK: I like to rub Jack's belly. Jack is Memommy's dog. He is Pop's dog.
SJ: I like to swing in Memommy's baby swing.
WP: Will Perry. Memommy.
Afterwards, they added their story to their notebooks. :)
During reading workshop, both girls have word sticks we play a game with each day.
While I played with one, the other chose five and wrote them on the window. I had EK erase her words one at a time and try to spell them back to me~ spelling. :)
After sticks game, I did a guided reading lesson with each. Funny little story... I handed SJ her book and asked her to take a picture walk before we read together.
(Just a strategy most reading teachers do with students where they look through the pictures and get the jist of the story.)
I am pretty sure I have said this to SJ before but for some reason this time, she actually got up and walked around the house looking at the pictures. LOVE!
They colored on a sandpaper seahorse, we ironed it to white paper, cut it out, and glued to painted background. Loved it!
And what else could we do late this afternoon when everyone had been in swimsuits all day~
Swim, of course!
Just a few highlights of our day...
