We have been out of school for 6 1/2 days now! If we get to got back on Monday, I will have some plans ready! Our RtI first cycle was supposed to wrap up this past Friday. But that didn't happen with student absences and snow days. I hope we get to go back this week before Christmas break begins. The students have missed out on a lot of seasonal fun activities by being out for so long.
My RtI students are making progress and moving through skills. One is still struggling to hold on to the short vowel sounds, but has progressed with sight words. We will continue to work on their skills and trying to move forward. If you click on the visual lesson plans above, you can click on the pictures that are hyperlinked to see the items.
This is what it looks like at my house right now! We got another snow storm that dumped more snow on top of the snow and ice that we already had. It's not even winter yet! This week is to warm up, so hopefully we will get this stuff melted before our next storm hits which is forecasted for this very next weekend! Crazy, I know! I posted this picture on Instagram-#conversationsinliteracy. If you are there, follow me and I would love to follow you!
Since this is the last week for most of us before Christmas break, I thought you might enjoy these fun Christmas apps that I found. And they are all free!! Can't hardly beat free! This first one is Sing Along Christmas Carols Free. It has several popular Christmas songs. When you choose one, it plays the song, but also runs the lyrics across the screen. I love those kind because getting words in front of kids any time you can is a good thing!!
This Santa's Naughty or Nice Scan-O-Matic is soooo fun! You can set it for students to push the button to scan if they have been naughty or nice. OR you can set it to where they place their finger on a box and it scans their fingerprint (or so they will think)! Very cool! You can place their finger in certain places on the button if you want to control whether their scan comes out as naughty or nice. Plus, a built in feature is a count down to Christmas counter. It shows the days, hours, or minutes until Christmas Day.
I know Christmas parties are coming up for most of us this week, so here is a fun I Have Who Has...Christmas freebie game if you would like it!
Just click here or click on the picture to be taken to my store so you can pick this freebie up!
Have a blessed Sunday and I hope we all get to school this week!
