Today is my last day of break. Such a sad day! I wish for just one more day. I'm crossing my fingers for a snow day tomorrow. It's crazy because there is pretty much no chance of precipitation in the forecast. Miracles can happen, right!?
If I'm ready or not, tomorrow is happening. I better get ready for the week. I'm working on lesson plans for the week. Thought I would preview the week for you.
Phonics: The little owls will work on reading and writing words with endings -ed and -ing by doubling the final consonant. They will also work on words with r-controlled vowel pattern ar.
Reading: Our main story for the week is Frog and Toad Together: The Garden
Writing: My little owls will write sentences using verbs for the past and for the future. I am also planning to have the owls write a narrative about a snowman. We are working on stages of the writing process.
Math: Our class is starting a chapter on spatial sense and patterns of shapes. The owls will work on determining a pattern on shapes and if a shape has been slid, flipped, or rotated.
Plus centers and small group interventions. I have yet to finish planning those. I needed to take a break from planning. I guess it is time to get back to it, though.
