I don't know about your students, but mine have been rather rambunctious this past week.
One thing we will continue to work on this week is our fluency using "'Twas the Night Before Christmas'." I assigned students lines to read and every day, then they partner read the entire poem with a classmate. Their fluency has improved dramatically. Later this week, we will play "I Have Who Has" of lines of the poem using this fun activity from Mr. Hughes.
We will perform the poem for our kindergarten buddies at a buddy party on Wednesday.
Also this week, my writing students will be writing their own family holiday newsletter. Similar to newsletters that many of us get in Christmas cards from friends and relatives, I am going to have my students think of the three most memorable events from their past year and put together a one-page newsletter.
How about you? What are you doing this week to stay sane? :)
As a side note, there WILL be A Peek at My Week next week, even though it is winter break. I thought we could share what we are doing over break to help refresh and rejuvenate ourselves.
Wishing you a great week!
