Random Freebies

When I taught vocabulary in the classroom setting, I had a plethora of posters that I'd use to teach synonyms, antonyms, homophones, contractions, and compound words. To see these posters, head on over to ReadingResource

This year is a bit different...I find myself having to tweak things that I used in the past to fit my multiple groups. This week I will continue talking about homophones with my first graders. I love reading "Eight Ate: A Feast of Homonym Riddles" and having kids come up with their own..."A Pair of Pears" is a great template to use to help students create their own riddle.

Another activity I will be doing with my intervention kids (the day before Thanksgiving Break) was taken from Pinterest. Launi from Gracious Rain made these "Sweet Acorns".

I am going to send home a note with my intervention students this week asking for any donations. I've attached my letter, as well as one that you can use in your classroom by filling in the missing info.

To take it a step further, students will be creating a "Super Tasty Treats" Recipe Book where they will be writing in the ingredients, writing the steps, and illustrating their creations. At the end of the school year, they will have some recipes they can share at home with their families.

I'll take some pics and let you know how it goes...Have a great week bloggers!
