|Here we are! Twelve years later!|
I wanted to post about a few Spring time activities happening in my room and also share an anchor chart that has been very helpful with my kids lately. My students' writing is really flourishing! They are adding lots of details to their writing and their spelling is really improving. One thing we are having difficulty with is LEAVING SPACES! Ugh! They are leaving little spaces between their words and thinking it is enough. However their words are still smooshed together. So, we've been discussing "spaghetti and meatball" spaces. I'm not sure where I got this idea but I've been using it for a while now. The "spaghetti" spaces are the little space between letters in a word and the "meatball" spaces are those between words in a sentence. As we have writing conferences and sharing time they are beginning to remind each other to leave their "meatball" spaces between words!
|In the science center they also completed a cut -n- paste on plant needs.|
|Here is one sample from our writing center "must do's " on planting seeds.|
Make sure to check out the "It's a Spring Thing" linky party at Mrs. Lirette"s Learning Detectives.
Lots of great ideas to help you with your spring planning!
Have a great week!
