With that said, do you ever feel you're not up to par? I'm sure it's a feeling most of us have had at some point in our lives. It's a feeling that has hit me after seeing some of the great stuff out there---whether it is on blogs, TpT, or Pinterest.
Goodness, Pinterest.....where on earth do people get the time and/or money to decorate their classrooms? I love my job, and want my students to be comfortable, but some of them have a hard time taking care of things. For example:
I admire so many teachers. This blogging journey has put me in touch with some really great people....people who have changed my teaching lifestyle and have made me a better teacher (I think)......so what was I like before? Ahh, there it goes again...that feeling.....
Anyways, enough of my being all glum.....man I wish I were a glow worm!!
I was going back through some of my old stuff from last year. I've revamped one of my workstations that I do early in the year.
There are 8 sentence scrambles that are color coded. I find this makes it easier earlier in the year.
These are for students to use for recording purposes. They will unscramble the words and make sentences. They write the sentence beside the correct picture and then they can color the picture accordingly. I've also broken it down to just 4 sentences, due to time restraints/abilities--you will find this in the download.
The pictures below are color coded to match the color coded words. Add a piece of magnetic tape to the colored words. Tape the recording sheets (seen below) onto a cookie sheet. Students can arrange the words in order and place them on the lines. You wouldn't have to use them as a writing activity. Again, these are broken into smaller pages in the download (4 sentences at a time, instead of the 8).
