Just popping in today to give you a quick little freebie that I used
this past week.

Y'all know how much I love using sticky notes in the classroom!
So, I just jazzed up my prediction page with some Halloween clipart
and the kids loved it. Of course, use your favorite Halloween book
to practice making predictions with this fun little page.

We are currently studying bats, so we read the book Stellaluna,
and made some predictions in the middle of the story.

First, I pass out the sticky notes and the students write their prediction.
Then, I give them the Making Predictions page where they
place their sticky note and write down the title and author of the story.
Of course, they love coloring a picture to go with their prediciton!

I can't tell you how much they love getting to use sticky notes!
It's the little things that really excite them I guess. :)
But it works, and I don't mind doing whatever it takes to get them
to practice and use reading strategies!
Which reminds me I need to go stock up on more sticky notes...

So way back in September we studied all about our five senses
and I made a little recording sheet for an anchor chart activity I saw
on pinterest from Spotlight on Kindergarten.

I made a similar anchor chart and then gave my students some
popcorn and we brainstormed ideas while we ate.
{any excuse for food in the classroom is ok with me!}

Here is our chart we came up with......

Then, I had my students fill out the sheet below choosing one
word for each of the five senses from our chart.
It's a freebie for you so click on any of the pics to download
the recording sheet, as well as colorful graphics for an anchor chart
or whatever else you might need.

My students then picked one word to write on the
popcorn shapes and then we displayed them out in the hallway.
This bulletin board was thrown up in a hurry...don't judge. ;)

Happy Monday!
