Yes, we are still focusing on main idea, and identifying those key details in a story.
After going over our data, and taking note that our state test is 80% comprehension for 1st graders, we jumped right back into main idea & details.
It worked perfectly for St. Patty's Day because we made these super fun rainbows! :)
We read Jack and the Leprechaun...which the kids loved, PLUS it has lots of details to pull from.
Add a little glitter... of course...and easy peasy...beautiful & colorful rainbows!
Wish I could share the template with you, but it's all on the BIG paper, and I have no idea how to even start putting that one here. Believe me, it was super easy to make, though. :)
We've also done some fun centers to go with our theme this week...
A leprechaun at our writing center...Thanks First Grade Parade! You can get the template/freebie at the link.
We also did a sorting center to practice nouns, verbs, and pronouns. I took gold coins, circle labels ( I love me some labels!) and the kids had to sort each coin into the right "pot". They loved it!
Tomorrow, we're making cool leprechaun hats...with paint. Yes, paint. Does anyone else start feeling the anxiety when the word PAINT is even mentioned?! I must really be in the spirit ! :)
Hope everyone is having a great week. Thanks for stopping by! :)
