Five for Friday- 27 Feb 2015

1. Bippity Boppity Bumblebee:
I introduced the concept of syllables this week. Because their names are the most important and familiar word right now, we sang Bippity Boppity Bumblebee to help us figure out the number of syllables in everyone's names. It took a few goes before they really got the idea. For a while, a few thought we were counting letters in our names!
I got the idea, words and images from Deanna Jump's Names Unit.

2. Guided reading groups:
This week we continued using Tara West's Introduction to Guided Reading tracking strips. I am so excited to see my students starting to make connections between spoken words and written words.

3. Building Humpty's Wall
We focused on the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty this week. The students helped me to build his wall using words from the song. This activity was great as a meaningful word work activity. Because they were so familiar with the words from the song (and we have been reading it using the big book lots too), they were able to identify even the "tricky" words like "couldn't" with a little prompting.

4. Fixing Humpty
Keeping with our Humpty theme this week, we revised the sound of the week /c/ by sticking /c/ words onto bandaids to patch poor Humpty together again. I forgot to take a picture of this one-sorry!

5. Sale-my purchases:
I stocked up on some products that have been on my wishlist for a while! Yay!
Here is what I purchased in the sale this week (click on the image to go to the product page):

I am so excited to start using this resources!!! What did you buy at the sale?

Hope you all had a great week! Don't forget to link up with Kacey from DoodleBugsTeaching for some Five for Friday fun!
Till next time,
Stay joyful.
