1. Get comfortable...
2. Get ready...
Working on 7s today, I told my students that I don't have a special song or trick, so they'll just have to work on memorization. We made x7 index cards for students to take home and study. Students who come back knowing their 7s get to be featured on the blog tomorrow!
In language arts, we are working on figurative language. We have studied similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, and now alliteration.
I love using alliteration! It just helps things flow off the tongue.
She sells seashells by the seashore.
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
We watched a short video about a girl whose name is all alliteration: Sara Cynthia Sylvia Stout!It was important that my students understood that the letters didn't have to be the same, just the letter sound.
In fact, today we had a Thrilling Thursday and tomorrow we will celebrate Fun Friday! Then we will have a Super Saturday and a Soulful Sunday in preparation for a Marvelous Monday!
Can't wait to see what we can come up with tomorrow!
