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??
