Freebie Alert~March Word List
Don't know about you all, but March definitely came in like a lion. However, still not one snow day yet!! It has been so windy and rainy that we practiced our tornado drill Friday.
We had so much fun this past week with all of our Dr. Seuss activities. My kids go to the library on Friday and my librarian said Oh, Mrs. Drerup, your kids are wanting these Dr. Seuss books like crazy. So many of my kids said they were hoping to be able to go to the new Lorax movie that just came out. So how fitting, we read that book and have a fun project to finish up with on Monday.
We started our March writing journals on Thursday. We wrote about what typically happens in March and then yesterday we wrote about what we like about spring. This year some of my kiddos have really struggled with journal writing. I have had to really "alter" my guided journal writing the entire year since I have seen this situation since the first month of school. So, the last 2 weeks of February, we went back to a total guided journal writing lesson together again while the kiddos were writing the same thing in their journal on the floor. My higher writers were enjoying it because they were giving me some adjectives/adverbs to help out with jazzing up our writings.
On Thursday, we went back to all of us working on guided writing and then all of us doing an independent journal when our guided writing lesson was done. I can honestly say, that those 2 weeks of everybody doing our journal together were very helpful to all writers. In just 2 days of independent writing, almost all of my kids are "on board" of understanding writing!! One little girl even said, "Mrs. Drerup I now get it!". She was soooooo excited and was bouncing around the room. Isn't this what we teach for. This gave me goosebumps and brought tears to her mom's eyes when I told her!!
Here is our March Word List that we put at centers and on their workmats at their seats!! Enjoy this freebie!
