Short U - Bug Ideas

Last week we learned about short u, my students read our HM story a Surprise for Zig Bug.  So our centers had a short u and bug theme.   Our comprehension skill was Story Structure so the students took two days to complete this Story Map.  They found and completed the Who? and Where? on Day 1 and then the Problem? and the Solution on Day 2!

I've also changed the way I do centers, I'm sure that will be a blog post in the future.  In our Chunky Monkey station (Word Families) the students sorted these adorable Fun in the Sun short u words  thank you, you can get a copy HERE!

In Vocabulary, we learned about the parts of the bugs.  My students got to pick a bug to learn about and then they drew the bug and labeled the parts.  I found the Bugs Fact Sheets HERE!

In our pocket chart center we read a Interactive Poem about Bugs.  The students were able to change out the bugs names and what each bug could do.  Then to test their comprehension I had them practice writing the last sentence with a bug or two and what that bug can do.
