Kind of like a KWL.. love this!
My favorite charts look like this:
I love graphic organizers with the Schema, Misconceptions, and New Learning! These really show the new learning! (The one above we did for Valentine's Day last year :)
Anyway, I made a different graphic organizer for this week. We are studying prairie dogs this week. Tuesday I modeled how to use this organizer and today we shared the pen. They did the writing.
First you write 3 interesting things you read.
Next you write 2 things new to you.
Then you write 1 question you still have.
I have seen this idea in a bookmark form (which I may re-create). I thought it was a great idea to get the kids thinking. If you would like a copy of these writing posters click here.
Next time, I am going to split the kids into groups and have them do their own 3-2-1's.
(oh and good luck decoding those words... creative spelling can be crazy!)
What is your favorite way to show student learning?
In other subjects... like math... we did doubles today! I found an awesome activity on TPT last night (last minute planner!):
I loved this activity! We made little i pods with the Doubles Rap on it. The kids were so excited to learn the rap. Best part.. it is free!!
Ok... gotta go to bed.. Have a great rest of the week!
