This is a freebie from Mrs. Bremer's Class. I've used this sight word station and my students love it. Mrs. Bremer's Class blog has so many wonderful ideas. http://mrsbremersk.blogspot.com/2012/05/spaghetti-meatball-spelling-more.html
I apologize for not posting for several weeks. As any teacher knows the first week of school is amazing and exhausting. I wish I could say I'm past the exhausted part, but to be honest I'm still needing to nap an hour each afternoon after school. I'm loving everyone of my amazing first grade students. Almost all of my student's parents signed to give me permission to post their child's photos, work and video on my teaching website and our school website. This is a video that can only be viewed if you are on my website. It is set as private on youtube. This is a math game we play almost everyday. We pretend we are on a television game show and I'm the game show host, the students are the contestants and audience. All I do is show a math flashcard and my contestants try to be the first to say the number. It's a lot like around the world, but with more pizzazz. My students LOVE it and beg to play it everyday. This is the cutest, most funny video you will ever see. There is an intestinal gas comment at the beginning of the video which is just part of being in a first grade classroom.
We are already jumping head first into daily five. I chose my student's 5 books the first week. We practiced and practiced read to self and read to a buddy last week. This week my students chose their own books and I added a word work station. My students did so well yesterday I added read with teacher station today and they did awesome!! Here are a few photos of my students hard at work reading during daily five.
