Wild Thing You Make My Heart Sing!

I love the book, Where the Wild Things Are and we had a lot of fun with this book last week.
You can view my unit on TPT by clicking HERE

We made our very own Max and wrote about what we do when we feel wild.





This is the writing chart we did before we made our Max's.  
This chart makes a great shared reading piece for the rest of the week.  

We have a class full of wild things.  Some have spots, some have stripes, and some have stripes and spots.  After we made them we sorted them and analyzed and recorded our data.



I just redid my Wild Things unit so if you've already purchased it go and download all of the new stuff.






America Unit Part One


I love how cute the bald eagles turned out!  This is a picture of our Chit-Chit message.  These messages are how I teach and review phonics, reading and language skills.  There is no better way to teach letter sounds and sound chunks than in the context of authentic reading and writing.  We read a sentence just as it is written and then use our schema and other context clues to help us figure out what would make sense in the sentence.  Once we think we have it figured out then we stretch the words and write the missing sounds.  I always end the message with a question so that the kids can turn and CHIT-CHAT with a partner about what they learned.  

Statue of Liberty's 
I am amazed at how good these turn out every year.  They are little artists!



This is a copy of how I organize and teach my America unit.
