Welcome to Four Square Fridays...Volume 3!
Each Friday we will post 4 quick things -- basically anything we want to share with you at the moment about teaching, TpT, family life, and more!
This week's 4 squares....
This set of letters has been a dream for my reading groups. The letters are sorted perfectly and are color coded (red - vowels // blue - consonants), and there are plenty of each letter for my group of 4-6 students to be able to practice the same word. I put all the letters needed for the word we are working on in little plastic cups. All 6 of the student cups fit nicely in a supply basket. This makes them easy to take out AND put away!
2 // Text Evidence Pack
We are working REALLY hard on written response; I've seen big improvement lately since we have practiced all year. This product is one of my favorites that we have; we scaffolded these passages so kiddos first have LOTS of support to provide a written response, then we take away a bit of support, and finally students are responding and providing evidence on their own.
3 // saw vs. was
If you teach first grade you realize this struggle is REAL!! I have a few students that consistently say "was" when they come to "saw" and vice versa. I made this quick reminder card to help (pointing out that saw starts with s - like you see something). So far, so good.
The hunt for a lip gloss that is not sticky is over - this lip shimmer is soft and a touch shiny. It comes in a lot of fun colors that are perfect for spring and summer! Anything that reminds you of summer is a win, right?!
