What I've been doing

I've been doing a lot of this {grading}:

Because my firsties are still struggling a bit with sequencing, I made this graphic organizer {Thanks for the ideas for the wording, Amy from Step into 2nd}:

And I made this paper to go with it:

I love your when I was sick activity. Thanks for sharing. I just finished up reading the Hunger Games Series. I can't wait to see the movie too. Your spelling test paper also looks like something I'll have to make too.

PS - Also DYING for it to be March 23rd and see Hunger Games already! Although I know I won't be braving the crowds opening weekend... I am thinking I can sneak in on a weekday after school and see it when it's not too crowded!

I love all of your ideas! Thanks for the great freebies. I like your spelling test paper. And of course all first graders can definitely write about being sick (and sharing it with their teacher). :) I also can't wait for The Hunger Games movie!!!! Love the books!

Thanks for the freebies, very cute. Oh, I just saw your comment over at Kristin's blog, too funny. When I saw I was first, I was typing like a maniac.....is it kind of sad to be that excited ?? Sorry I beat you but hey, it will probably be the only time I am first :)

Rachelle said...

Hahaha! You beat me!!!! You are too quick! :)

Haley said...

Thanks for the freebie! Just wondering how you do your spelling tests? Is that the mastery test? Do you send that paper home? I'm not loving my spelling books and would love helpful hints!

I love your spelling test sheet. I teach third grade and we normally have twenty words. Some of my students are having trouble with handwriting. Is there a website I can purchase the template that you used to create a twenty word and dictation sentence sheet.
