I finished the remainder of the common core reading today. (YES!!!!) I hope throughout the year to go in and add more items like parents newsletters etc. As for now- I just wanted to call it quits and move on!
Here is a peak at the lovely little item:
This is part of the generic nonfiction assessment. I wanted to be able to use books from my district's reading series to assess students. The assessments are assessing fluency, have room for a running record and then they have checklists with most of the phonics and phonological awareness first grade standards (most- because I created separate assessments for those.) They also have checklists for retelling and finally questions to ask the kiddos after they read the book that go along with common core standards. I also have a fiction assessment and a simple rubric for oral reading of prose and poetry.
Since I finished this baby today and am ALMOST finished with my Common Core Comprehension Reading Response Activities.... I decided to TREAT myself with finishing a FUN activity that I have been putting off. :)
Here is my Fishing Frenzy unit: :-D
This uses goldfish crackers (so much incentive for the little ones!) to complete 2 math pages. Then they get to write a story about, "The Adventures of Mr. Fishy."
There is another math activity but there are paper fish to help measure if they already consumed their crackers! There is also a super fun sight word fishing game that is only practing irregularly spelled (cough-common core) and some of what I call "yellow" words which are words with rules or chunks.
You can find more information on how I color code sight words here.
Finally there is a little yummy reading activity: How to make Dirt Pudding! :)
Two new items today- so- the first 2 friends to comment will receive one of these for free! Just leave your email and tell me which item you want! :)
