Farm Unit Pictures

For the last two weeks we have been reading fictional farm stories.  We have been using this anchor chart created by Abby Mullins from the Inspired Apple blog.  My students have been LOVING IT!!  

~ Short I Word Sort ~
My students recorded these words on lined paper. But I did include a recording sheet.


~ Farm Word Wall ~
Students record words from the Word Wall.  I allowed them to generate words for the extra spaces.
~ Farm ABC Order ~
My students used this sentence strip to help them.
Animal Describing ~
We used the animal cards to practice the new common core objective:
L..1.5 Define words by category and by one or more key attributes.
Build a Sentence ~
Students choose a Who Card, a Position Card, and a Where Card.  Then they wrote them in a sentence.  They loved the silly sentences.  This helped my students add detail to their writing.
If you are interested in these activities you can purchase this pack HERE!!
Can you guess what we will be learning about next week?
You guessed it OWLS!!! 
I'm loving Cara Carroll's Camping Capers Pack!  You can find it here.
