That's right - I have teamed up with my Freebielicious friends again to share some
teaching tricks and special free treats for you!
First,my teaching trick. It is simple and probably not going to make you go "SAY WHAAAT?!" However, it has helped my whole group teaching tremendously. Room set up!! Before, I had everything spread out...fairly strategically too! I wanted a "quiet station" next to a "not so quiet station." I was trying to spread out the noise! Well, I wasn't thinking about what was most important. So, I ranked my teaching time. I started with my whole group teaching area. What was I going to do there? What did I need to have? What would students need to be able to see?
I wanted my word wall and my comprehension skills close to my whole group teaching area. I would refer to them often.We build our comprehension wall together. I read Goldilocks the 2nd week of school and we keep adding to it! All of my comprehension skills are related to that story.
We can play word wall games during whole group AND students can see the word wall from anywhere in the room. My words are color coded. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow! :-) My internet was down and these are what I had on my phone! Oyyy!
You can get the comprehension posters here:
