Its been too long since my last post. School was a little over whelming with DRA testing, report cards,
May was a lot of fun trying out a camping theme and I absolutely loved every minute of it. Next year will be even better! All the centers, stories we read, and writing projects were all about camping.
Thanks to units from The First Grade Parade (Camping unit is Good and Cara's classroom examples really helped!) and First Grade Fever (Woodland Animal unit). It was a real success thanks to these marvelous women and their amazing ideas they share!
|I didn't have time to get too fancy so the students and I cut some pine trees and made owls from First Grade Fever's Woodland animal unit and did owl reports too.|
|Of course we had to find out who has or has not gone camping before.|
|Then we wrote about what we would love to do if we went camping. Carson Dellosa had a bulletin board sets and animal cut outs to write spelling words on to add to the fun.|
|This friend can't wait to roast weenies over an open fire. LOL!|
I wish everyone a relaxing and super summer. Enjoy!
