Week 22 went by in a FLASH with the help of an early release on Tuesday, no school on Wednesday, and delayed start on Thursday. All of this because of SNOW! So rare in SC…I’m glad it came, but I’m glad it’s gone. Here’s what I was able to do during this short week:
On Monday, the “Oscars” of KidLit were announced, so I had that playing on the SMARTBoard in the library. Check out the winners here: http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2014/01/american-library-association-announces-2014-youth-media-award-winners . I continued my Book Award Blitz lessons with K – 2 by reading Rrraplh by Lois Ehlert. With my 1st and 2nd graders, we read the book and then created a dog bookmark. With Kindergarten, we read the book and then visited centers. The centers I set up for this book were: Read a book by Lois Ehlert; make a dog bookmark; and this activity on the computer. 5th graders are one more lesson away from earning their Digital Passport!
That was my week! The rest of the time was spent at home, staying warm and reading 🙂 How was your week?
