March 2011 | Peace, Love, and First Grade


One thing my students love is making books! And-Big Books are their favorites! Here are a few of our class creations along with a few more classroom favorites!

1) Class Big Books

We love all books, but the ones we create as
 a class are our favorites!
They take a LONG time to complete but are
 worth every second!

 2) Pointers
What better way to read a big book than with a pointer?
We have come a long way since the first week of school when the pointers had to be confiscated
for "sword-like" use! A long way!

Pointers AND a class big book!

3) Reading Buddies
Again, we love to read! Reading to our stuffed friends is so much fun! They are such good listeners, too!
 Some of them don't like to sit in our laps...

4) Book Boxes

If you noticed in the pictures above, we have our own personal book boxes. We are learning to make wise choices when looking for good books to read. Now we each have a place to keep our favorites.

5) Finding Words
We LOVE finding words! We look for words with certain endings, words with special chunks,
nouns, adjectives, you name it!
These are two of our favorites.

These kiddos truly have a fascinaTION with the
word chunk -tion!
Check out the big kid words they know!

More Class Favorites to come...
