April Show and Tell




Most exciting purchase this month: A NEW CAR!! We are expecting our first, sweet baby boy at the end of June and we definitely need a car upgrade!! We traded in my 2009 Ford Escape for a 2012 GMC Acadia, which I LOVE!! Now we have more space and one happy Momma! We drove two hours to the dealership and didn't make home until almost midnight but it was totally worth it!

I made this little freebie as a "Fun Friday" craft for our Henry and Mudge week! The "dge" phonics pattern can be really difficult for some first graders and spending the week with our friend Mudge is the perfect chance to have students generate and write a list of "dge" words!

I LOVE to do author studies with my class. We have also recently started doing a lot of "interactive writing" posters. For this one, we watched the Brainpop Jr. video about Ezra Jack Keats. Then, I wrote the two sentence stems and called on different students to fill in the blanks. At the bottom, we wrote titles of books that we read that week and the different characters from those books.


A couple of weeks ago, we made these adorable Wanted Posters. The kids had so much fun creating their own "cowboy names" and reasons why they were "wanted". The big surprise was getting to take their wanted pictures in a cowboy hat! They made the cutest "mean cowboy" faces and they LOVED getting to see the final result!!

You can find this project FREE {here}.
