Adjectives and Comprehension Freebies

Hello friends!  I have some FREEBIES for you! 

First off, we learned about adjectives last week.  I saw the idea I think on Pinterest at some point for doing this activity with character traits, but I adapted it for adjectives.   They had to come up with 9 adjectives to describe themselves.  It was a great self-esteem boost!  I modeled for them how to do it first, and I let them come up with adjectives to describe me.  I need to do that more often, because they were so sweet!  If you are having a bad day, do this activity!  You will feel great afterwards!!!!   You can get the adjective template {HERE}.

We used these anchor charts last week to distinguish between fantasy and reality.  You can pick them up {HERE} for FREE!!!

This week we are learning how to draw conclusions as our comprehension strategy.  I am going to use this booklet rather than the workbook page for our story.  They record two facts and then draw a conclusion based on the facts about the story.  For some reason, they are more likely to get into making a book than writing on a workbook page as you all know!  You can get this little FREEBIE right {HERE}.

Standardized testing will be here before you know it!  If you are like me, I am always pushing reading comprehension strategies to prepare my little kiddos.  I have some activities in my TPT store than can help if you are need of some supplemental activities.  I also try to create them to fit within the evaluation process and rubric.  You can check them all out below. 

Have a great week everyone!!!

  5. I am so happy to see another blog that actually has some substance to it!! I am fairly new to the blogging world, but I see so many blogs that are just full of crafts and fluff and don't really teach the standards. My best teacher friend and I just started a blog recently and we are dedicated to sharing purposeful teaching ideas and resources, and I see that you are too! I am your newest follower.
