Great way to learn vocabulary!

My students shared their October calendar words with each other and then we played a game with our Vocabulary Scoot Game.  I let them use their calendars to help them find their answers.  They had fun reviewing their words.  Then they chose 5 words from their calendars to write a story.
We just posted our November Calendar Words and activities.  Check it out at our store.

Fun Coloring Book!

The kids in my class had a great time coloring this book today.  They loved using color pencils!  It is a great week to do this, especially if you are busy assessing students.  And now they have another book to practice in their book bags.
There is also a read aloud book that the coloring book matches and our Quality Student song.

Pumpkin Flipbooks


My students did a great job on our pumpkin flip books!  They had so much fun making them.  A couple of my students said they knew how to put the pumpkin cycle in order because they just thought of our pumpkin poem that we have been reading everyday.  I was so pleased to see them make that connection:)Remember you can get this and lots of other fun activities in our Fall Fun Literacy Bundle.

"Going on a Leaf Walk"

My students had so much fun today going on a leaf walk.  We graphed our leaves and we did leaf rubbings.  They were so cute!  They said it was like magic when they saw the leaf print come alive:)
Come back tomorrow to see the pictures they create.  I know I can't wait to see them!

Great Vocabulary idea!

My students are learning so much vocabulary from our calendar pieces.  They have their own copy of the calendar and they write the word of the day, number of syllables, picture and write about the word in a notebook.  It has been great for my ELL students because it is introducing new words to them.  Our set also includes a scoot vocabulary game to play to review the words.  Come check it out while it is 50% off and follow us to see when the next months are ready:)

Great Way to get your kids writing at home:)

One of my students made a paper Quentin to go with our class pet Quentin the Quality Penguin.  Here she is reading the journal entry she wrote last night and showing what she made at home last night.  Now my class says we have a baby Quentin.  They just love Quentin!

Great Book and Coloring Book to match about Kindness:)

This is a coloring book that matches the book.  The kids got so excited about having their own copy of the story for their book bags.  I will be anxious to see how many students will learn to read the whole book:)

You can get both of these items in our Fall Fun Literacy Bundle at Teachers Pay Teachers.
My class loved our new book about  Quentin the Quality Penguin in the pumpkin patch.  Quentin learns a valuable lesson about kindness.  We had a great discussion about how we should behave and being kind.  My students said it was just like in our Quality Student song.  They wanted to sing the song after we read the story so they could listen for that part in the song about kindness.
