Dr. Seuss Directed Drawings and Sweet Seat!

Happy Sunday! I bet y'all are all so wide-eyed and busy-tailed with the time change, right? haha!  Well, maybe you're saving THAT for tomorrow. I know I LOATHE the first week of time change in the Spring. It just KILLS me since I already get up at 5:00. I die. If you don't hear from me for a while, you'll know why...

I wanted to share with you one of my kids' favorite things to do. Directed Drawing! Ever since I saw Kelley's post on her Spooky Sentence Sketches, my kids have been addicted to it!

The other day, my friend Jennifer (Rowdy in First Grade) shared a link for some Dr. Seuss directed drawings. I instantly printed some up. I printed one copy of color and laminated them (hence the HORRIBLE glare - sorry about that!) and then made a few black and white copies of each page.

They turned out so cute! 

Here's the link to download the free printables for the directed drawings!

So, on Friday, I posted this picture on my Instagram. This is the Sweet Seat! Of course I sit it in it ALL the time, but it's also for my kids. I use it for them to do Show and Share but also we do Friday Sweet Seat Reading! Every Monday, I pick a student to read for us on Friday. They pick a book to practice reading all week to get better on fluency, rate, intonation, and accuracy (the main components of oral reading fluency!)

And LOOK! Yesterday I started on my April Common Core Literacy Menu Centers pack....

AND, I'm almost finished! woo!!!!  Do you see any skills that I'm missing that would be good for a review for 2nd grade??? Let me know! If I don't get them in this month, maybe next month??

Love the Sweet Seat idea, Jen. So easy to tie-in to other weekly events like Star/Child of the Week. I know the kids would like it and learn not just from their turn to read, but from listening to their peers. Thanks for sharing. :)

What an awesome fast finishers activity! I will definitely be using these for the rest of March!
