One reading focus we have this week is ways readers read words.
Today I zeroed in on sight words.
There are 100 words that our district says the first graders need to read and spell. But oh so many more need to be read.
Remember, I teach 6 and soon to be 7 year olds. They like to play. Have fun. Be tricked into learning.
Bring out the stuffed animals--they EAT it UP.
Enter Lizard the Word Wizard. He says we need to remember, practice and read sight words quickly.
It was fun. He will travel to the other first grade class tomorrow (I don't have my own lizard, boo hoo) but sometimes he may come back to visit us.
Starting Freedom Week was a bit ok. Sharing facts about the constitution was alright, but thinking of adjectives for our country was fun!
