Story Structure, a FREE Literacy Center, and Catching Up

I'm back!  Sorry for the M.I.A.!!!  I have been swamped with the usual and getting ready for our Harvest Festival fundraiser.  One more week of that and I can hopefully breathe again!

I wanted to share a few things we have been doing in our classroom over the past few weeks.  I feel so behind!


We had our open house and we had these super cute sneaky e guys to greet the parents.  We also made the All About Me Bagpacks.  Of course, I forgot to get a pic of those.


I love this idea using the first letter of each student's name to practice place value.  I think Rayann found it on Pinterest.


I introduced story structure to my little ones.  This is the anchor chart we made to go along with one of the short stories from our reading series.


These posters came from my Story Structure Unit.


We are loving this vocabulary game from Mrs. Bainbridge.  We recorded it in a flap book after we put our vocabulary words in order on the front flaps.



The kids are loving Brown Bag Book Club.  We made these main idea hands to put on our bags of popcorn.  They discussed the weekly story and the main idea before the assessment.


You must check this book out!  Rayann introduced me to it.  It is great for teaching math problem solving strategies!


Here is a freebie from my Sneaky E With the Vowel O Word Work Packet.

I just posted my latest word work unit tonight to accompany A Tiny Seed.

Off to bed to get ready for a busy day.  I am on the decorating committee for our Harvest Festival.  I can't way to show you pics!  We are going with an Enchanted Forest theme.  It's on Friday night, so I will post pics next week.  Have a great week, friends!
