I have been trying to make the vocabulary come to life. Instead of saying words, and using context clues in isolation. I have been trying to build the students schema. This weeks vocabulary includes menu, assemble, and celebration. We had a celebration and ate ice cream. We made a menu for our own restaurants and set prices to review our money skills in Math. Also, we assembled seahorses. I used the opportunity to teach inflected verbs as we worked on the seahorses. I wrote sentences on the board. 1.We are going to assemble seahorses. 2. We are assembling seahorses. We assembled the seahorses. The students really enjoyed learning vocabulary this week. My students did a great job. I'm proud of them.
Thanks a lot to Cindy from cindysintheteacherslounge.blogspot.com for the great seahorse patterns.
