HELLO long lost friends!! I promise I haven't disappeared completely! I have simply been trying to keep up with three CRAZY kids! What better way to pop back in than to let you know that I am having a sale! All this week the Blog Hoppin' girls and I are hosting a big ole' sale!
Today's deals are all about ELA! I love, love, love second grade ELA skills. They are so much fun! I am going to take you on a picture tour of these units used in my classroom!
My kids just adored studying homophones the last two years!!! I reached high and low for images that matched up to the word pairs that I wanted us to study (Or is it pears :) ).
You can find the homophone craft in Amy's store as a freebie.
Here is a peek at my Reading Focus Board:
We of course utilized Brain Pop Jr. and Youtube to help us with homophones as well!
Next up we have my former first graders' favorites: compound words!!! There is truly nothing a first grader likes more than pointing out compound words! This unit gives you everything you need for whole group and small group instruction on the topic!
And the last unit I want to highlight is my Convention Camp! I literally came up with this unit on the plane ride back from meeting with my wonderful blogging friends a couple of years ago. They are just THAT inspiring to me!
This unit a perfect review for concepts that students should have a pretty clear grasp on coming into 2nd grade. I know some teachers that used it also at the end of first grade to tighten up some skills before testing!
There are posters to display on bulletin boards:
And centers and individual student printables (not pictured) for independent practice!
I hope you enjoyed catching up with me! Here is a peek at what all there is to see this week! I will be back MUCH earlier tomorrow with lots of Back to School goodness!
