I introduced phonic phones to my below and on grade level reading groups this week. They loved reading into the phones. It was wonderful to see both groups so excited about reading.
Today I tried bonus star table points. On the back of each post-it, I wrote a number ranging from 1 to 5. I picked one student at the end of reading to earn bonus points for his table. His table was very excited to earn 3 bonus points. I have some other tricks up my sleeve that I will post once I try them with my students.
In math we were learning about odd and even numbers. I showed my students Odd Todd and Even Steven on YouTube. They loved the song and it helped them remember the difference between odd and even.
I hope you enjoyed my first Five for Friday! I hope to do this again in the near future!
