The 3 1/2 hour sessions include 2 computer lab sessions (one for reading and the other for math remediation sessions), as well as 2 classroom sessions, also for reading and math. In my group of 10, 6 of these children have one-on-one sessions with a teacher for additional reading remediation.
With this said, the first day is always chaotic, but I needed some of the chaos to understand what my children needed to be ready for the beginning of second grade. My focus is on sight words; the children are working on the primer and first grade word lists. Here's some of the sight word stations I had set up yesterday.
|building sight words using magnet letters; these are always a favorite and I need to get more letters!|
|seat work: graphing unit from Annie Moffatt|
|stamping sight words|
And the first grade unit I created has first grade sight words and contains word cards, Write the Room with recording page, 2 "I Spy" activities with recording pages, texting codes printables, and a game perfect for a center.
For you, my loyal followers, I am giving away either the primer OR first grade word packet. Share in the comments something you have done since school has finished, along with your word packet preference, and email address. I am keeping this offer open until Friday evening.
