Now on to the linky with Oh Boy 4th Grade and the JUNE (still can't believe it) Currently.
3.5 days left!! WHOO HOO!!
I have SO much left to do this week. I haven't done report cards yet and I haven't packed up my room. I know I'll get it done, but it's still hanging over my head.
I want an iPad (stamping my feet)!! I've said it a million times this year! It seems that something always comes up that we need more. Maybe this summer (I hope).
I need to lose some weight. (I hate even saying it!)The older I get the harder it is to do! I joined Weight Watchers online, but I'm having a hard time sticking to it lately. I just need to put my mind to it and get busy! Any words of advice out there??
Three vacay essentials for me are a bathing suit (which is another reason I must lose weight), two great books (usually one for pleasure and one professional), and I MUST get myself to the beach, alone or with the kids (hubby doesn't like the beach much).
Today I'm doing a double linky! Besides Currently, Collaboration Cuties' Mentor Text Linky is going on!
Language Arts is the subject area and I choose this book about homophones, Dear Deer by Gene Barretta
This makes a perfect read aloud and introduction to this topic. The pictures are fun and certainly do an excellent job of illustrating the meanings of the words. After I read the book through once, then we return to it for a closer look. I like to have the kids discuss the meanings of the homophone pairs by studying the pictures with a partner, then we share out the definitions they came up with. Click HERE for a list of homophones you can share with your students. Let them create their own stories and drawings using several of these word pairs.
Now I'm off to do a little house cleaning, get my daughter ready for her acting debut AND a singing solo (she's been taking some classes and today is the showcase), and, of course, get some school work done! Can I do it all? I'm going to try!
