Exploring Affixes: Write the affix down. Give an example of a basic word with that affix. Eg. DIS - Dislike. As a class, figure out what it may mean and write down the definition. Students brainstorm examples of other words with those affixes and use dictionaries to see if there is a common meaning for the affix.

This really is probably going to be the most disjointed blog post ever! There were a few different education and non-education topics swirling around in my head, and I'm just going to lump them all into one post. I haven't blogged in a bit for no good reason than it is summer, and I'm being a bit lazy. Every morning, this is the plan: But, then I get distracted. One of my biggest distractions this summer has been this little app: Yes, that devilish little Kindle app on my iPhone! It has been…

Babbling Abby

Oh mah word, we have had a busy weekend. The kitchen isn't complete, so don't get excited. We're working on a DIY schedule, which means that progress is regularly interrupted by we-don't-know-what-the-heck-we're-doing moments. So, we have to call on the experts. The experts being B's dad and Matt, my brother-in-law, and of course Google. {Please note: My husband is also an expert and is single-handedly attacking this kitchen with more know-how than I could even imagine having. He's kind of…

1st Grade Fantabulous: Back with Printables

Back with Printables

I hate trying to figure out how to start a blog after a week off. Do you guys struggle with that? I had a rhythm down, but last week got away from me. I had the best of intentions, but by the time I made centers, worked on new projects, and did lots of other random stuff I realized I'm just circling back around to making time for my blog. Speaking of which, thank you so much for all of the sweet birthday messages. It was neat to me getting so many birthday shout outs. It definitely added a…

So I really had no choice but to create some EGGCELLENT center ideas! I've put all of my eggs into different baskets so students can choose which center they want to do. 1. Writing Prompts in eggs. I created just a few fun writing prompts and printed them on Avery 5160 labels so that my firsties could stick them into their journals…

Say "synonym rolls" five times fast. Impossible, right? Okay.. maybe not impossible, but rather difficult. I made you do that for a reason.. read on! Read on! While grading our weekly Treasures assessment, I realized that my students struggled identifying synonyms in context. Yikes! I had a few ideas brewing in my head, but thanks to this delightful pin... my plans changed! Luckily, Halloween was the perfect time to whip up a fresh batch of Synonym Rolls. It was the perfect attention-getter…


Classroom Rules: The 3 Bees - Foxwell Forest

Classroom rules are so important! Rules are kind of like the flour in a cookie-without it your classroom will fall flat. Students will flourish when there are high, yet attainable expectations that are set in love and held with consistency. I love these “The 3 Be’s” rules because they are, what I consider, rules for life! ... Read More about Classroom Rules: The 3 Bees
