  • On Screen while session participants enter room Ask someone to write date on class letter before session starts
  • Introductions Judy Personal (my family, my nephew) Education (attended Catholic school 12 years, Vandy BS, USI MS, more to come) Experience (10 years in the same school I attended) How I got to this point? (End of year discussion with principal 4 years in a row; he finally said… you’re doing it… here’s where you’re doing it… here’s what I think you should do… etc. – he’s across the hall right now!) Leigh Ann Personal Education Experience How I got to this point?
  • Introduction of what this session is all about Goal for the day – That you come away with at least ONE new thing you can take back and start using in your room A walk through a day in my classroom A combination of my education, textbooks, things I’ve learned from other teachers, workshops, found online, and my spin Stop me if you have questions Active participation encouraged Examples from my classroom on the tables feel free to explore When you leave here today I will have cards available for you – access to the presentaion via our school website – every picture, video, title is a link to give you examples and directions to the activities
  • The start of every day Draw a picture, write words to go with pictures No prompts, no help Freedom to imagine I check May take 3 days to finish one page Develops pre-writing, writing, fine motor, phonemic awareness, creativity Leads me to know what to teach when we are writing… Samples: Gracie (early in year… name) Anna (2 nd quarter… sounding out words) Peyton (3 rd quarter… word wall usage, sounding out… missing capitals, etc.) I write on it how I would change it Ctrl P (to get pen) use left mouse to write (write capital A, add a period) E key to erase writing, Ctrl A (to get rid of pen and make arrow reappear) Chase (3 rd quarter… sounding out… we had focused on ‘ck’ sound) Shaurya (4 th quarter… spacing, capitalization, etc.)
  • Meeting math concepts (patterns, counting, money, time, and pre-reading skills, pre-writing skills – ask WHY a lot) Estimate Jar and Surveys – more about that in Math Class letter language concepts (letter writing, letter formation, sentence structure, and more) Let’s write a letter press B key to black screen Now we will write a letter to our audience on the chart paper (interactive) when finished press the B key again to restore our presentation Have someone write date upon entering Discuss date Write about being here… Thank you for coming Focus on sounding out… What do you think that starts with? Do I need to leave a space here? What kind of puncutation does this sentence need? Volunteers to come up after and find Capital Letters
  • Let’s Play Funny flashers (link to video of class playing) – have sample available I Have/Who Has (link to photo of samples… let’s play with color words) – have multiple samples available Flash-a-word (link to separate slide-show so we can play – slides need to be clicked to advance) 5 Clues Game (link to video… after video discuss how we progress to having our own paper, then playing Make-a-word… play make a word with “we” -- be, me, he, she, the) Class Books (show examples – moving from simple: names, color word, one fill-in, full sentences) I could go on for hours here… these are my 5 favorite!
  • We play with lots of things… (samples on tables) Pictures of each other to learn names/faces ABC’s in order ABC’s out of order Colors words in color and in Black Numbers/number words in order/out of order HFW Can play with anything… make it harder for older kids… (states/capitals, inventors/inventions, etc.) Great for a time killer or when someone comes to the door… Play game with volunteers! (color words – black letters)
  • Let’s Play Funny flashers (link to video of class playing) I Have/Who Has (link to photo of samples… let’s play with color words) Flash-a-word (link to separate slide-show so we can play) We play with flashcards, Document Camera, or this thing my parents gave me from basketball games 5 Clues Game (link to video available...) We’re going to play Need volunteers to hold the cards… have, I, you, like, we Review words… Play along out loud – we practice this way altogether, then move to writing on overhead, then to writing on own paper together, then all alone Clues: 1. On board 2. has more than ONE letter 3. has an ‘e’ 4. has TWO vowels 5. rhymes with ‘bike’ Then we play “Make-a-Word” Using one word to connect the sounds to a new word Use like to help you spell… Bike Hike Mike (point out that it’s a name) Pike Liked (point out that the sound gets added to end here) Class Books (show examples – moving from simple: names, color word, one fill-in, full sentences, go home with everyone… parent comments) Pass these around the room I could go on for hours here… these are my 5 favorite!

  • Saint Contest To involve Kindergarten with what the rest of the school is doing at that time of the year 8 th Grade has a Patron Saint Contest… research saints, create skits, reports, bulletin boards Older grades are more involved We always just watched the boards go up and commented on how nice they looked This year we got involved! Took a photo of one part of each board and lined them up down the side of paper Introduced each baord by reading the name of the saint for that board Demonstrated how to find the photo on one of the boards and write the name of that saint beside the photo Then they were on their own… paired up with a friend CLIPBOARDS! – so official!

  • Advent So focused on Christmas (Santa) Try to focus on the real reason for Christmas Vast majority of my Christmas décor is religious (advent wreaths, manger scenes…) Slowly built our manger scene by creating mosaic pieces during center time... Outlined the figures Children chose colors and worked together… making 1-2 pieces a day Use candles to “be the light” for others (reward good behavior)

  • Mass Go weekly Plan our own near end of year Students are readers, gift bearers, and we always sing a song as communion meditation Read introduction, first reading (often 2-3 students), responsorial psalm (3-4 readers), petitions (9-12 readers) Often get told how special the Mass was They feel so important and special Highly recommend if you don’t do this

  • Quiet Time get brain and body ready for rest of day Reflection Rejuvenation YOGA/MeMoves Quiet/Soft Music Bags My time to get caught up… complete individual assessments… students can finish work from AM Let’s Take a Break! (Palm Tree)
  • Estimate Jar (number formation, counting 10’s, count on, estimation, add to Math Meeting) Surveys (reading, writing, letter formation, compare/contrast, number formation, adding/subtracting, problem solving) (Survey before you leave… Would you visit Miss Judy’s classroom again? Yes/No – tally marks/comments on the back) Games (at center time with volunteers – cover correct number mats (snowmen and marshmallows), dice add/subtract mats (spider webs and spiders), build your own games (leprechauns), roll-a- games (groundhog) – show samples – choose volunteers to come and play -- End of the day activities (Table Time) – tangrams, pattern blocks, geoboards…
  • Big centers Add little bits at time Picture labels – to organize the room Basket centers – everything you need to complete the task in the basket My way to incorporate science, social studies, and art And to reinforce language arts and math skills I have 5 baskets one for each subject… we rotate each day… by end of the week students have done 5 activities revolving around a central theme Example: Spring Science: Water cycle bracelets Math: comparing roses/raindrops Art: paper plate flowers Langauge: Class Book: Spring Social: Read/discuss story with parent volunteer… take an AR test Shortened week? – only 4 centers, etc… Great way to use parent volunteers When finished with basket activity can have “play” time in big centers
