Carnival Party Carnival Party Invitation Ideas My favourite carnival party invitation is shaped like a carnival, or circus, tent. You lift up the tent flap and the party details are revealed. You just need two pieces of coloured card, or heavy paper. Cut one slightly narrower than the other- this will be the flap.
Write the Room I'm back! We got back the other day from a great week-long trip with the kids to Jamaica. I wanted to post earlier but I was trying to catch up with laundry, getting everyone back into routines and cooking it was so nice going up to the buffet each day and just choosing something to eat!
I had wonderful guest bloggers in for me last week so if you missed their post, be sure to go back and read them. I have just over 2 weeks left of summer vacation. I'm hoping to pop into my classroom later on this week to attempt to get it ready. I'm just hoping it's going to be cleaned by then!
I have had a lot of e-mails about how I do write the room and why it's different from how others may do it.
Well, first, I've tried the "typical" write the room They did everything with those clipboards but write! This center was so unstructured that I knew it was time to do something about it! Here's my way of doing a Write the Room center. The first thing I do is "hide" the picture word cards around my room.
I like to introduce theme words to my students every few weeks and we use these words for our Write the Room activity.
For instance, my Back to School Write the Room words include "bus" and "pencil", words that we will use and talk about in our classroom. My kids think it's so much fun that they have to search all around for the words don't get me wrong, I hide them, but not in places even I would never guess.
I'm talking about taping the word cards to the side of a shelf, bottom of the blackboard, on the wall next to the washroom, etc.
The students still get a clip board and pencil tip: Instead of a blank paper with little to no direction, students are asked to complete various worksheets which I change every week.
I always include a variety of worksheets so that I can meet the various needs of my students and show how differentiated instruction is used in my class. There are time that I use this center with the whole class too.
I have a student choose a word and we come up with a sentence together. This is a great way to introduce your journal writing topic also.This download is for a free double sided Read/Write the Room Worksheet and teacher directions.
This is a fast and easy literacy center/station. I change the letter each week to go with the different letter sounds that we review in first grade.
The ×11 is a little too big for me to hang in our school room and the flash cards a little too small for the kids to see hung. Is there a way for me to shrink the ×11 to a 5×7 or 4×6?
I was trying to figure it out but I can’t seem to make it work.
