Don't you just love short weeks? We had a Professional Development Day on Monday, and "Parent Conferences" today. The catch is that if you have logged at least 6 hours of parent contact, you get the day off! Here's what I did this week:
5 Minute Day:
I only had a 5 Minute Day on Tuesday, since I only saw my MWF kids on Wednesday. I used the Autumn Write and Say the Word from All Y'all Need; the same one I used the week before Fall Break.
For my kids that didn't do a "5-Minute Day", I used a couple of games from "Troll in a Bowl". I've said this before: I really wish that this company was still in existence, because these games are awesome. They are non-competitive, so the whole group wins or loses.
In this game, the kids are trying to get "Little Freddie Frightening Hood" to Grandpa's house before Grandpa turns into a werewolf.
I chose Fresh Fall Leaves by Betsy Franco because of the verbs. The book is short, sweet, and to the point. We continued with Falling Leaves Prepositions (freebie from Dabbling Speechie) using 'in', 'on', and 'under' because my student is still having a pretty difficult time following directions using those concepts, as well as expressing them.Fall Early Language File F older Activities (Miss Speechie).
this freebie from Lupita Valdez. It's a very short reader (only 4 pages). I had to modify some of the words to fit those concepts: The book used the words "on top of" and "on the bottom of". Answering "where" questions was also targeted.
We were all about Halloween Idioms this week! I started off the week using a freebie from Jenna Rayburn:
I have to be honest: there were several that I had never heard of, and even after consulting the internet, I still didn't know what they were. I'm not sure if those are regional sayings.
These worked much better. I saved it on my iPad and it worked perfectly.
