So in honor of Friday, I thought I'd post a few freebies. =O)
Our state is transitioning to Core Standards and Essential Standards and we are beginning to emphasize the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy. I created these small charts and put them right behind my guided reading table to use as a reference with my students. When I have the time and energy, I plan to take them to Staples or somewhere and get them blown up into large posters.
I always like to spend the first two days getting to know my students and helping them become acquainted with one another. I found some fabulous activities on other blogs so I thought I'd share two that I created. They are both pretty simple but the kids enjoyed them. First is a Find Someone Who activity.
The next is called "A Time Capsule about Me." The students filled in their answers now under the August column and we will put them in a "capsule." In June, we'll open the capsule and they'll write their answers to see if any of their preferences and tastes have changed.
