I also changed my writing criteria chart and coloring rubric. I felt like I needed fewer steps, but I only ended up making it 6 steps instead of 9, lol! Old habits die hard, I guess. My coloring rubric is an idea I saw on Pinterest (I Love Pinterest)! I also decided to use Sandra’s Pinterest idea on how to sit on the carpet. She has a little girl so I decided to make mine a little boy. He actually looks like a student I have in my class this year, which I did on accident.
For the life of of my I cannot get this picture to flip over! Click here for the freebie.
The last apple activity that we did was our taste test and graph. We tasted 4 types of apples. The students then had to choose their favorite apple and take a square that was the color of it. I turned this into a mini cut paper activity. The students had to use a square to make a circle, I gave them the stem. We then used their apples to stick to our favorite apple graph. Red delicious swept the competition!
Last but not least I made a quick little center to share with all of you! Learning the parts of a book, in both English and Spanish, and also it is...Free!!!
Well friends have an awesome rest of the week!
