Word families

We will start introducing word families in the coming weeks.  Last year, I had a different group of students who needed more hands on activities and I tried many different ways. I came up with this one to use to rainbow write in the boxes and write a sentence.  At first, my class needed a lot of modeling but quickly it became a favorite activity!  I hope you enjoy!

Behavior Plan

This is my new behavior plan chart.  I found this one day stumbling around on the web. I wanted something more positive with my class and the stop light system was not cutting it anymore.  Change is good!  I think!  Okay it is... here are a few sites to explain the plan and to help anyone along.  What did we do before surfing the web!!

We just finished our first week with this plan and it is super awesome!  It was great to ignore the negative and acknowledge the positive choices my students were making!  I am in love with this so far!!

I had to share this photo of Kaden... It was on facebook but the true story was Kaden was absolutely sure I needed to pull his tooth!  I didn't want to but he would not leave it alone.  Telling me loudly "Just pull it, MOM"!  Crazy... I did and it came out!  He lost his second tooth about a week later!  


I was so inspired by all of the teacher blogs and friends blogs that I had to join... So, here I am!  I am planning on using this for my classroom and my family! We all need some inspiring at times in our lives.
