Well folks, it was back to school for me today. I had a wonderful break with my family and even made a trip to the warm weather. It was...heavenly!
With it being the first day back after winter break the first thing we did this morning was reflect on our break. As you know every.single.child wants to tell me ALL about their break at the same time. I tell the kids to keep it as a surprise and after we are done with the reflection that get to all share what they did. What? A surprise?! Make a big deal about it…it works! J
Here is the winter break reflection that we did today. You can have your kiddos draw, write or use it as a pre-writing activity. You can grab it for free here in my tpt store.
One of our mini-lessons today was on homonyms. Brainpopjr has an awesome video to introduce it and we did a picture sort as a whole group activity.
I like to introduce a lesson with a short mini-lesson and whole group activity, then continue to work on the same skill throughout the week. You can grab the quick sort here.
We have a snow storm forecasted for tonight...my fingers are crossed for a delay tomorrow. :) Anyone else getting snow?
