Then, I came home to cut and laminate.
When we get back from Spring Break, we are going to hit several reading skills hard! Our state test is right around the corner. There has been a HUGE push in math...time for some reading review!
I love Rachel Lynette's Task cards!
We are going to start with informational text structures.
Another Dollar Tree find! Party trays!
All the glass beads (Walmart) go in the middle.
As a student correctly answers a question, they get a bead.
Then, we will move on to nonfiction. I thought it would be fun to have eggs filled with task cards all in a cute basket. According to my, just turned 10 year old, the basket is not as much fun as if I hid them around the room! Sooo....in order to get her to help me stuff them, I had to promise to hide them
around the room.
I also used Rachel's SUMmarizing task card set right before spring break. Summarizing is such a hard concept. Rachel has a great little nemonic device for remembering how to write a summary. I set the task cards up around the room like a scavenger hunt. My students had a great time writing the summary in 12 words or less. It was so fun to stand back and listen to the conversations about what 12 words would make the best summary!
Cards laminated and eggs stuffed...now it's time to watch a girly movie, cuz the hubby is out of town!
