Guess My Number!

I can't wait to share this with my class tomorrow!  They are such great "detectives" and will love solving for the "mystery number"!

I am going to have my students mark out the clues with a different color as shown above.  This way, if they make a mistake, I'll be able to say, (for ex) "You colored in the 3 during clue #1 even though it says the mystery number is even".  Freebie included if you'd like to try.  I would LOVE to hear your comments.

K and C rule

Happy Spring Break!

Maybe I can finally catch up on some long overdue blog posts.  My grade level is now teaching explicit phonics using Fundations.  I am learning so much about the rules of phonics (you know all that we never learned but are expected to know and teach!).  Recently, we learned the rules about whether or not to use the c or k when sound out a word that includes this sound.  My students love having this knowledge so I thought I'd share a chart you can use too.  We used our school poster maker to blow this up and hang in our room.  Grab this freebie and share with friends.

Change it Up!

We've had a snow day and yesterday was a rain day so I've had a chance to work on something other than lesson plans.  Wahoo!  This is called "Change it Up!"  It's great as a literacy station or morning work.  Students will use the clues to help determine letter that is going to be "changed up" to make a new word.  There are 3 different ways to do this so it's differentiated!  We love that word, don't we?  Your students will love the challenge and it's always fun to "change things up". There's a freebie also so you can "try before you buy"!

one more time class freebies and really last time
