Happy Schedulin’ Sunday! This week we’re continuing our Community Helpers Research Project, we’re kicking off Word Family Bootcamp to practice word families and we’re working on
Word Families Lesson Plans
As always, you can download our weekly lesson plans here:
Community Helpers Research Project
This week we are continuing our Communty Helpers Research Project! This is always a favorite for the kids becuase they can make such strong connections to the community helpers. We focus on 1 community helper a day with a read aloud, graphic organzier, labeling and writing. We also throw in some directed drawings!
This week we’re learning about construction workers, teachers, mail carriers, firefighters and trash collectors.
Word Families BOOTCAMP
This week we are kicking off our Word Family Bootcamp! After 26 days of ABC BOOTCAMP, we now use the sounds and letters we mastered and apply them to spelling, reading and writing CVC words! We use word families as a scaffold for reading CVC words because the rhyming helps support our students.
For word families using Word Family Bootcamp, we do a 2 day routine. Day 1 is a circle chart. Day 2 is word building, blending and writing.
To provide students extra support and practice, we use our differentiated word family decodable readers. The readers are included in Word Family Bootcamp.
