A whole bunch of random classroom happenings

I snapped a few pics over the last couple of days of things we've been doing in our classroom and thought I'd post them all in one random post. :)
We've been talking about realism and fantasy.

We learned the Doubles Rap! Well, the first 6 anyways :)

Some of us have mastered alien fry phrases and moved onto Forest Friends Fry Phrases.

We are learning initial blends this week. I made these flash cards to help learn the sounds the two consonants make, which has really helped with my strugglers.  Let me know if you would like a copy of the initial blends flash cards!

We've been learning how to create lists in Writer's Workshop.


My kids are scarecrow crazy! Aren't these fun? We had a meeting with our reading coach last week so we had aids stay with our classes. My mom works at my school too, so she stayed with my class and whipped up this little craft with them! I'd share the pattern if I had it, but she didn't think about saving it. They had a ball making these and they were so excited to show them to me when I got back. :)

Our Johnny Appleseed door is finished!

I changed the way I did our objectives. I use to do them weekly, but this year we have to have daily objectives displayed, so I decided to do this with a pocket chart. I have to say, I thought I would hate this way, but I really like it. It's really easy to write out all the objectives Friday and then place them in order and flip every day. Working out so far!

    I also LOVE your daily objectives pocket chart!! We have these objective posters where we are supposed to write a TPO for whatever we are teaching, but they only gave us one poster. I'm sorry, but in first grade, the objective is changing all day long and I can't keep jumping up to erase a poster!! I'm definitely going to make something like that, so I can leave it up all day long! I'm already pretty much out of wall space, but I'll make it work! Thanks for the great idea!!
