I am doing a Fairy Tale-Folk Tale theme this year. It has been great because we are teaching the 7 Habits and this is so easy to do through the characters! This is a glyph we did. The boys made Baby Bear and the girls made Goldie! UPDATE: We've now posted the glyph in our TpT and Teacher's Notebook Stores! Go here for more info.
We are focusing on Win-Win this month... but Goldilocks was not thinking Win-Win... so we had to change her thinking :) She wrote Baby Bear letters saying she was sorry and what she will do next time!!
For fluency practice we learned the Baby Bear Rap by Dr. Jean. They are soooo cute rapping this. I didn't let them hear her version until we read and reread it! They thought they did it better than her! I also used Goldilocks and the Three Bears from the I'll Read to You, You'll Read to Me book. The boys read Baby Bear's part and the girls read Goldi's part. It was a lot of fun. To throw some nonfiction into the mix, I typed up some facts from Gail Gibbon's book Grizzly Bears!
This has been a fun way to gather morning data!!
Nobody went for the Cheerios!! They said that had to be Papa Bear's bowl!
Breakfast with our bears!! They had a blast wearing their jammies to school and bringing their bears! On the menu... porridge of course... bear biscuits (you can get markers in the cake decorating section to make the face).. black berries, blue berries, and honey. They felt like I should have included some fish (gold fish)... next year I will have to remember that.
Reading to her bear!!
love getting ideas from other teachers!! If you have some
ideas I can add to Goldilocks and the Three Bears,
I'd love to hear them!!!!!!!!!
That is my class website if you are interested!!
