Trying to fit everything into a day is near impossible! Ask any teacher! So I love when I can combine 2 things into 1 lesson! More bang for the buck as my dad would say!
I LOVE to combine Morning Meeting with Reading!
I have the student pick a card to stretch, blend, then read (some old timers call this sounding it out)! The student then has to tape the card on his/her shirt.
Each student then walks around the room to find a partner.
Each partner must do some type of class greeting; we love to shake hands!! We will change the greeting to make it fun each week!
The partner team has to take turns reading the other friends shirt! Sometimes friends have to help each other! Click here to see how we blend CvC words.
Partners then change and keep reading! We work until we have greeted each friend or time is up!
This great practice has us talking and speaking to each other to start the day... and we practice reading! I LOVE when we combine 2+ things!
