Hey everyone! I am here today to share with you my lesson plans from the first week of school of third grade. I know a lot of us are gearing back up for school to start, and you might be looking for some ideas. These lesson plans are from when I taught third grade, but I have cleaned them up a bit and made sure they made sense. (We all know how those back to school lessons get shifted and modified as we go!)Read more
The past few weeks we have been immersed in my favorite books of the whole year: all of the Kevin Henkes mouse books! My students always love these books every year. I’m certain it is because the characters are quite relatable and SO much like my first graders! While I read these books they were all so interested and captivated! I heard so many connections while I was reading as well. My kiddos love the mouse characters!
After reading, I created some matching cards that had the book covers and a summary without any of the mouse names. They worked with a partner and read the cards and matched them with the correct book cover. After matching, they took a picture of their matches- they LOVED that part! It was also so easy for me to check their work. I’ll definitely use that as a way to check work again- possibly during stations.
Some awesome ladies challenged TpT sellers to makeover a product cover. Well, after looking at my store, I totally saw which of my covers was desperate for attention!
