Made it Monday

This is actually a made it weekend. I have a first grade resource page and Mr. Book.
Michelle over at FabulousInFirst 
has a great first grade helper. I also saw another helper that was similar on another blog and I'm sorry that I forgot which one. I liked the idea of kids having something at their desks to use as a reference. Two issues I have is that my class doesnt have enough wall space for what I want to put up and when the words are on the wall it becomes a distraction and some kids get up just to get up and then forget why.

I created a three page resource, I really tried to get it into a two page but there was just too much. I also used our current LA program cards and spellings. Dictation is a big thing in our district and they want the kids to use the sound spelling cards when writing.

Take a look. There is one for boy and girls and the only difference is the number line design. Three pages total, the first one is a word wall, the second page is numbers with 120 charts, words for shapes and numbers, and a number line, the third page is the sound spelling cards for our LA program.

MR. BOOK! My youngest kids did this in first grade last year at their school and I thought is was cute and many years ago our librarian read my class a book about taking care of books that goes along with this little one. Our librarian is gone and I cant find the book she read but this is still a good first week activity.

Most of the pages are self explanatory. Page 7 requires smudging chocolate, either with a brown crayon or I may give them a "kiss" and have them smudge some on the page. On page 8 my daughter has a bite mark with her teeth.Page 9 requires a band-aid.
