Literacy Lessons in KC
I loved this lesson! We went back to two very familiar Nancy Carlson books and went on a Punctuation Scavenger Hunt. We noticed that she didn't have many questions marks. I asked the group what kind of book do you think we would find questions mark...a reader in the group responded nonfiction. This week we will do this again with a nonfiction book. This lesson came from the book Mastering the Mechanics k-1 by Linda Hoyt. Writing Craft Anchor Chart While learning about Nancy Carlson, we…
The Wizard of Boz
I post a different picture each week and students write one asking and one telling sentence about the picture. The goal is to make them “sparkle” by adding details and checking for capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. Students write the sentence in pencil first and after proofreading are allowed to make it “sparkle” by tracing over it with the gel and glitter pens.
Teaching With Terhune
To keep the anchor charts that I have been teaching out on display I have added a space in the back of my classroom to display them. I have hot glued clothes pins to the wall so I can easily clip them up and change them out to keep them on display. Since I have started to make more and more anchor charts I had to think of a way to store them. I have used hooks and hangers to hang them up. I also printed out labels to easily find the charts I am looking for.

Asking VS. Telling Sentences - Sea of Knowledge
So the other day, one of my ESL students was still struggling to tell the difference between an asking sentence and a telling one. I looked up a few resources to help him, although I thought I wanted to expand on this and maybe explain commanding and exclaiming sentences. There weren’t many resources on the […]
