One of my goals for the new year is to be more organized with this little blog of mine. I love sharing ideas with others, and I absolutely hate when I get out of the groove of blogging. I do best with routines, so I’m hoping this post can be a weekly post for me.
In my newest adapted book pack: Bundle Up, It’s Winter, I’ve included a book about winter clothing with comprehension questions and an interactive vocabulary sheet. There are also interactive winter kids to use with a cookie tray for students to practice “dressing” for the winter.
After scouring Pinterest for ideas, I’ve decided on the following activities (& freebies!):
I plan to use the story props from the pack below from 1 + 1 + = 1 blog to make the read aloud a little more interactive. I am also planning on having a story map like the one from Plant’s Press that we can review daily. With this story, I will be stressing the words “go,” “in,” and “out.” We consistently work on the words “look” and “turn” turning story time and we try to use them in different contexts, for example “It’s your turn” and “turn the page.” I especially want to stress those words with my students that are using aug comm devices to give them more practice with their device in a structured setting.
