Not bad for our first day back!

Our first day back from fall break and it was a success! I don't think anything educational was lost or misplaced over the break! It's a miracle!
For language arts we are working on simple subjects and predicates. Since Mrs. Jackson covered this topic during our first Boot Camp rotation, my students were already familiar with the concept.

Subject- who or what the sentence is about
Predicate- starting with the verb, tells what the subject does

We practiced with a simple sentence. We underlined the subject and circled the predicate.

Looks easy enough. Now to add some motions.

To add some kinesthetic learning- movements to imprint the topic into our brains, we added our arms. I said a sentence and my students repeated it back to me while underlining the subject and circling the predicate with their arms.

You know you're impressed!

I took pictures of our literacy centers. We are reviewing synonyms, nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns.

 Synonym Cinnamon Rolls- Found at Lesson Plan Diva

 Farmer Blends- found at Herding Kats in Kindergarten

Parts of Speech Dominoes- found at Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational

I want everyone to know that my class was AWESOME today! The only behavior colors that were changed today were due to students forgetting their agendas at home. Let's hope the good behavior stays throughout the week!
