First Grade Writing
Don’t YOU just LOVE it when something WORKS?
I am a PINTEREST JUNKIE!
I know. I am.
I saw these on PINTEREST and
I HAD TO HAVE THEM!
IRIS USA 12 by 12-Inch Portable Project Case, Slim
(I got mine on Amazon…FYI)
What are they (you ask)?
How do I use them? and WHY?
I have taken ALL of my MONTHLY MASTERS…
Crafts, Reading, Writing, Math, etc
and I have ONE COPY..
of each page
in a clear document holder.
NO more HANGING FILES!
They take up too much space!
*disclaimer…even though they have clips that hold it closed…
I use an “OLD SCHOOL” rubber band around it..
Just to make sure my papers don’t end up on the shelf!
Then I took SHARPIE PAINT PENS
and wrote the month on the spine.
It has freed up SO MUCH SHELF space!
All of my HANGING FILES for my MONTHLY papers
(You know…they FUN THINGS!)
are now in one EASY TO CARRY HOME, folder!
I can take home the entire month of ideas
when I do my lesson planning!
Can you say…DECEMBER!
I am trying to “get it ALL together”…
I think it might be my New Year’s resolution!

Just a short note on a
SUPER FUN GAME
to help your kiddos
practice spelling / vocabulary / HFW words!
Do you remember
THE MATCHING GAME?
Well…. I have “tweaked” it for my classroom.
2 colors of BLANK PAPER!
1. Have Kiddos FOLD their paper into 16 squares.
( Fold it horizontal twice & Vertical twice!)
2. Use pencil to TRACE the fold lines.
(This ensures a BOX for kids to write their words in.)
3. I write the words on MY paper
and use my DOC CAMERA for kids to see, so they can copy.
4. Cut SQUARES apart into word cards.
5. Kids stack their cards.
6. Find a PARTNER with different colored cards.
7. They place ALL cards words DOWN.
8. Rock, paper, scissors. Winner goes first.
9. Turn over ONE of their cards & ONE of their partner’s cards.
10. Read…read…read! Do they MATCH?
11. If they match…they stack BOTH cards!
12. If not, turn them over and try again!
No WINNERS or LOSERS…
ALL DONE? PLAY AGAIN! 🙂
We usually have 6 spelling words.
I ALWAYS add MORE!
I am teaching word strategies.
NOT MEMORIZING FOR A TEST!
Keep them learning!
