My Top 5 Word Work Activities

Amanda and I started blogging over at Who's Who and Who's New- it is a collaborative blog which includes lots of fabulous bloggers- go check it out, if you haven't yet! I posted this a few weeks ago on there, but wanted to share it on here as well, just in case you missed it.

I use lots of different ideas week after week, but these are my top five that keep making an appearance, day after day.  

One of the main reasons these activities stick around in my classroom is because they work and are super simple to implement each day! Below are a few ways that I use these handy little tools to help my little readers become better each day at reading new words.

Great December Read Alouds!

Well December is here and now there are just 2 weeks left to go before winter break! I love that with each new month I can pull out some new books to use for read alouds with my little friends. My winter selection is kind of overflowing seeing that we live in the Chicagoland area and, well, winter just lasts a reallllll long time here for us. 

Here are some of my favorite Christmas-y and not-so-Christmas-y read alouds that I use in December. I included two graphic organizers {freebies} at the bottom that you can use with any winter-themed books! 

Year after year I come back to these same stories in December, generally because my students always love them...and so do I! They are just fun, good reads. We usually discuss the books as I am reading them and then do a follow up activity, like the graphic organizers below...scroll down to grab your own copy!

Have a great day!
