Wow! Two posts in one week from me. I am on a roll! :)
We start school in exactly two weeks! Yikes! Since we start on a Wednesday, I like to have the first 3 days filled with fun activities. Last year we changed our theme to bears and it was so fun! The kids loved the unit, so we are sticking with it!
Here are some of the activities we used.
First, I projected the Bears non-fiction reader and we read it as a class.
Last year, this was pretty much an experiment. Could first graders give a text based reason within the fort three days of school? And guess what? They could!
Next, the students completed this opinion writing activity. Click the pic for this freebie!
