Visual Plans and TpT Sale Finds

04 February 2013
Here are my visual plans for the week.  We are still trudging along with our penguin informational writing.  I forget that I have five more students than last year and that many of the kids get pulled in the afternoon. Things just take a lot longer this year!  I am hoping to have the students finish this week.   Click to download :)

Also, a big SHOUT OUT to my friend Cheryl of Primary Graffiti!  She helped me get those cool little pin hover buttons over the photos.  Thanks Cheryl, you are the best!

*This plan book format is called "Erica."  Click here to check it out in Ms. M's A Teacher's Plan Store.
**My visual plans are inspired by DeeDee Wills' visual plans.  


Some new packets utilized this week: 
I am using the friendship craftivtity in Amy's packet as my art center for the week.  It goes perfectly with Valentine's Day and the friendship story in the students' reader. 

Jodi's fluency packets work well as a morning job.  I loved that I was able to find penguin themed passages. 

We continue to work on nouns and complete sentences.  This packet by Made for 1st Grade is an amazing value. 

My students LOVE this activity.  They create the craziest sentences and then record their work.  I have had this game for 10 years and it has held up! 

I am linking up over at Blog Hoppin' to show you what I bought during the sale.
