I'm not 100! and a Freebie for you
My birthday present to myself (thanks to birthday money) is a new blog!! I'm so excited. I'm submitting the order today. I'm going to keep my design simple, subdued and with a touch of vintage. Can 1st grade teachers have a blog with a neutral palette? I hope so!! Stay tuned to see the finished product.
My birthday present to you is a little freebie. I've been busy making language arts packs and I made a mistake on one of them which inspired a totally different pack. :) I love how it works like that! This one is for the younger grades. It is a categorizing activity. Students identify the word that does not belong. They write the other words in the category on a recording sheet. It supports the CCSS for 1st grade: Sort words into categories (e.g., colors, clothing) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent. The categories in this activity are fruits, school supplies and animals. The picture above is from this pack. Click here for the free download.
I hope you are having a wonderful 6th of February! From a older (and wiser?) blogger ~ Melissa
