I’m once again linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for a linky party! 🙂 If you’ve never done this before, you’ll just write about five random things that were a part of your week, and then link up at her site! 🙂 Last week, about 100 people linked up…so…it is a really great way to meet new bloggers! 🙂
So…what’s been up in Mrs. Russell’s Room?
Random Item #1…This week, I’ve been teaching about the presidents. Each day we start the read aloud time with this catchy little YOU TUBE number.
Random Item #2…We read the book A Picture Book of Abraham Lincoln. We talked about the plot of a story and how it always has events or details that are part of the beginning, middle or end of the story. We sorted the events of his life into a pocket chart and then re-read about him to practice fluency. It was fun! 🙂
Random Item #3…My birthday is on Sunday, and on Saturday night, my hubs is taking me to Wicked! I am so excited about it! 🙂
|Tamara’s Crazy About Literacy Centers on TPT.|
Random Item #5…On my facebook page I put out a quick freebie I made up on lemons. One of the teachers on my team has a lemon tree. She brought in some lemons for us and over lunch we discussed some ways we could use them with the children. I put a quick pack together and I’m sharing it on here as well! 🙂 There’s a writing extension, a recipe for lemonade and a really neat strategy that my speech pathologist shared with me to help one of my language impaired students with writing.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my randomness!
