Animal Group Books

Here are some of the books that I used with the kids when we made the Animal Group Book.  They loved making the book and learned a lot!  It is always good when they have fun and don't even realize how much they are learning=)

Animal Group Book

Here is a book I made for my kids when study animal groups.  Just click and enjoy!

New School Year!

It is hard to believe I am already getting my room together for another school year!  I always love to change things around and make my room inviting to all my new students.  Here is how I have changed my library.  I have added stuffed animals that the kids can read with also.  To help the kids put books back where they got them, I have painted large craft sticks in different colors so that they can hold the place they got a book from. The kids love the leappads and I get them from the thrift store or parents donate them to my classroom at the end of the year.

Sight Word Tales

What Shall I Bring the King
Try Again Hen

Sight Word Tales

 This goes with the book: Who Would Buy These Clothes?

Sight Word Tales

I use the Sight Word Tales books in my classroom at station time.  They listen to the CD then they complete the worksheet.  The CD reads the sentences on the worksheet- they are the same as in the book.  The kids have to count and color the words.  I try to match the books up with the focus words we have for the week.
If you have a different  idea of how you use the Sight Word Tales in your room Please share with me!!
This one is for Today is so Boring.

I am a first time blogger!  I am so excited to get this site started.  I hope to post lots of information and worksheets that I have put together for Storytown and AMSTI teachers.  I am also an ELL class so I have made several different worksheets to go with each Storytown unit.  I love getting ideas from all the other blogs out there so I hope to give back some good ideas too=)
