I put my new Multi-Syllable R-Controlled Vowels Activities & Texts to use this week!  I started off by doing a picture sound sort.  It was really good.  I was surprised at how many times they would tell me the picture was of something that didn't even have an r-controlled sound!  Definitely got them thinking!  Looking forward to doing more work from this packet next week!


 



I knew my makeshift letter wall wouldn't last and I would have to make one lol.  I couldn't help myself!  All this awesome clip art, fantastic $1 small pocket charts...I couldn't resist!  This isn't in my store yet because I'm not quite finished with all of the letters.  I have included a large instructional sheet for each letter to show students how to write them.  What you can't see in this photo is that each student also gets a tiny version to trace.  I think put them in our pocket chart.  They loved seeing the letter they traced up there.

Our playdough mats are in full swing!  I officially finished the packet for you guys!  This was a helpful tool today while I progress monitored (although I still had a few kids keep coming over to me).  As you can see, my little friend needs a bit more practice BUT not too shabby for me not walking them through it.  We want them to be able to name letters more accurately right now before I can get a bit pickier with them writing the letters neater on the lines.  I'm still amazed with how far they've come in the past 3 weeks with me!






On the home front, both of my boys officially have their costumes.  It started with my oldest wanted to be Captain Hook.  Mommy forked over the $$ for the official Disney costume AND accessories (crazy mommy).  I wanted their costumes to kind of go together but I also wanted the little one to be warm.  I decided he would be the Tick Tock Croc!  HE LOOKS SO CUTE!  Can't wait to show you!  I think I may have Daddy be Mr. Smee lol.  I wanted to be Tinkerbell butttt apparently it's hard to find a tasteful costume for her.

In other news, I bit the bullet and bought PIYO.  I haven't been to class in month due to my husband working late.  I decided that I would bring class to US (that's right, I'm making hubby do it).  No excuses now!



Well you are pretty smart so I'm sure you have figured out why I have posted this.  WE ARE GOING TO DISNEY IN APRIL!  AHHHHH!  I haven't been in 5 years since our honeymoon.  I went many times when I was younger and have dreamed about bringing my kids.  On our honeymoon, we even smiled at the thought of the next time we would be there because we would have kids.  My boys will be 4 and almost 2 so any helpful hints on plane rides and Disney would be fabulous!


And there you have it!  My week!  Keep popping back this weekend because I'm about to get off of here and upload my L-Blends packet to TPT and finish up my "new letter" chart too!

  1. I love going to Disney!!! I want to drag my husband there again - it is just so fun!
    The Captain Hook and Crocodile duo is just too stinkin' cute! What a fun idea. Your ABC wall is great and I was loving your playdough mats - I like how they incorporate the writing on the same page as the playdough. My kinders love playdough - I try to have it out for learning activities as much as we can. Happy weekend!

    1. I love it too! We're so excited! My kids love playdough too. I take K-5 so my older students are always asking to use it when they see it out haha. I need to think of a way to incorporate for them as a treat!

  2. I'm so excited about your multisyllabic words product! I went to your store, followed you, and stuck it in my cart. My students could definitely use practice with this, and I'll be purchasing it to use in a center. Thanks so much! Those costumes are cute. I can imagine finding a modest Tinkerbelle costume for an adult might be tricky!

    1. I'm so glad you're excited about it! I just couldn't take it anymore and needed to make something to address the needs of my students! My 5th graders really enjoyed the pocket chart sorts. I gave them one of the passages to work on while I did my progress monitoring today. I was so excited that it was finally a challenge! I can't wait to continue with it tomorrow and really discuss everything!
