Retelling Rope Hello Everyone!I almost forgot to post one other thing. I have had a ton of questions and e-mails about my story retelling rope that I posted on last year.You can read about that here! :) I have been doing retelling ropes for a long time. Does anybody remember "Project Read?" The author of that amazing curriculum was my inspiration for this way of teaching kids about the parts of a story and extending that into retelling. Here are some pics of finished products, anchor chart and student retelling rope. For your free mini unit on retelling grab the rope and click here! Word Sort Activities I read the words for our new sort to the class. They had to decide if it had a short o sound or an or sound and then write the word under the correct column. When we were finished sorting we folded the paper so there were eight rectangles. In small group I read the word sort to the students and they had a card that had an o on one side and or on the other side. This was a whole group word sort. I love these Words Their Way books for word sorts. This one is more challenging for the middle to end of first grade. I also LOVE this one:

Anchor Charts Here are some other Pinterest ideas that I have made into small anchor charts. I don't know about you, but my classroom is limited on space to display all the charts that I would like to. I made this alphabet because I'm tired of the one in my classroom that takes up so much space. I hope this will be a better fit and give me room to display my sound cards as well. I got this idea from Pinterest a couple weeks ago. Wanted I just finished reading Daily 5 and I'm gearing up to start it at the beginning of next school year.

Mosaic Email Group Home "How do students become thoughtful, independent readers who deeply understand what they read?" The authors of Mosaic of Thought, Strategies That Work, I Read It But I Don't Get It, Reading With Meaning, Do I Really Have to Teach Reading?, and Learning Along the Way have taught us how to model and explicitly teach the strategies students need to become more proficient readers. The idea for this group was born out of the teachers taking the journey through this instructional paradigm. Wanting to jump right in and get started, but often feeling unsure and alone, we wanted a forum to share our questions, our joys, our successes, and our frustrations. Reading the book, Mosaic of Thought, (or any of the other books mentioned above) will strengthen your connection to our conversations. Some of the most powerful emails have been when members reflect openly on the email group about their teaching. Here are the focus points we welcome discussion about: We're looking forward to having you join us!

Road to Reading Writing and Technology The goal of this section is to develop writing skills through mini-lessons, modeling, shared writing, and independent writing. Using technology with writing is an excellent means of stimulating student creativity. Technology can be an excellent tool for all writing purposes: Narrative writing--telling stories or sharing events with word processing, newspapers created through Publisher Report or informal writing—graph or charts could be included through the use of Excel, interviews which can be enhanced with photos from a digital camera. Functional writing—letters or directions created with word processor, signs created with PrintShop, calendars created through Publisher Producing and responding to literature --stories, poems, songs, evaluating or comparing literature How many ways can you....? Experience Chart Tips: Write exactly what each child says — word for word. Add simple pictures (called rebuses) to illustrate words on the chart. Talk as you write.

About “Driting” · “Driting” is seen at the end of Kindergarten or in the Writing Block at the beginning of Grade 1. · “Driting” is the combination of drawing along with some “squiggles,” some letters, some numbers, a few words (often copied from print around the room). The student proceeds to “read” what they have “written.” Remember: Instruction should begin with where they are. · Procedure: The Mini-Lesson: The teacher models using a large sheet of drawing paper. Now the children write... The children are given drawing paper (unlined). Sharing: A few children sit in the “Author’s Chair” and share their stories and pictures.

Moving on to “Half and “Half” When the children are using both words and drawing in their writing (usually in Grade 1), it is then time to move to “Half and Half.” If in Grade 2 students are reluctant to write or have not had much writing experience, it may be prudent to start out in the first few weeks with “Half and Half.” “Half and Half” is a format where the top half of the paper is unlined for the drawing, while the bottom half of the paper is lined for writing. Procedure: · Mini-Lesson The teacher makes a transparency using “Half and Half” paper. · Now the children write.... Children write and draw at the level that they are at. · Sharing: The last 5 minutes is reserved for “Author’s Chair.” · Now what? When the students are able to work independently for 15-20 minutes, the teacher may then move on to Writing, Revising/Editing and Publishing.
