I love having Mondays off, because the rest of the week seems to go by so quickly! I can't believe tomorrow is already Wednesday! Also, I feel like my students are really getting a hang of our routines and procedures, which is always exciting! We start out our grammar unit by talking about types of sentences and punctuation marks, and of course, Pinterest has tons of wonderful ideas to go along with it! I saw this pin which fit perfectly with what we were doing and was super easy to do with my kiddos! We had already discussed the different types and done some practice with them, so this was more of a fun review to check for understanding and challenge them to think creatively!
I had the (empty) chart up on the board, and each student got 4 different colored post-it notes. I wrote down which color corresponded to which type of sentence on the board for them to refer to. Then they worked with their team to come up with unique examples of each type of sentence. I loved what they came up with!
Also, since it is September (already?!) I am linking up with Farley for her September Currently!
1. Our school was one of the several schools in our area who were provided iPads for each of the teachers this year and I have been loving having it in my classroom! I'm finding so many wonderful apps and ways to use it, and will hopefully be sharing some of what I'm doing with it with you all sometime soon!
2. And because I couldn't resist, here is a picture of my amazing pink running shoes (well, workout shoes... not a huge fan of just running) that my husband bought for me! OBSESSED!!!
3. Sour Patch Kids - I have these tucked away in my classroom for when I need a sweet treat!
