It's A PB&J Wednesday

That's right. Its a PB&J Wednesday.  No . . . we aren't talking sandwiches here people.  We are talking about the dynamic duo of Kerri and Lindsay, Lindsay and Kerri. Like peanut butter and jellly. Tonight you get a little of both of us!   

First off . . . Lindsay here.

I came to the realization today that, under no uncertain circumstances am I EVER to put up downloads, TPT items, or any sort of information into the blogosphere after 11:00 p.m. because my brain is completely useless.  APPARENTLY last night when I uploaded my Lucky Charms graph onto TPT I didn't even realize that the numbers on the side of my graph began with zero, rather than beginning with the number one like it should.  YIKES!  Soooooo . . . for all of you fabulous followers who have already purchased that little math center, I have uploaded the corrected version to TPT for you to re-download.  (click pic to go to my store!)
So sorry for the mistake.  Like I said . . .no more late night brainless uploads. Scouts honor.

My turn!! Hi Peeps! Kerri here...
18 report cards down and 6 to go!! YES!! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, girls! (any boy followers??) 
I have a little FREEBIE for those of you who use Houghton Mifflin and read the story Lost! by David McPhail with your kidlets. 

(WARNING: this is black and white-insert small shudder, AND not that cute-insert larger shudder!)

We are reading that story this week, and I just whipped this up today, so I apologize for the lateness of it if you have already read that story (you can save it for next year, right??) 

It is a little comprehension activity that my students are very successful completing independently or with a partner, while I pull my low babies and give them some extra reading TLC. 

I copy this 50% so the pictures will fit into the boxes
I copy this onto the back of the comprehension questions paper...

This is how it all goes down in my classroom:

Step 1: I pair my kids up and they partner read the story. 
Step 2: Comprehension Activity: With their partner, they answer the questions about the story and  cut and paste the appropriate picture that matches their answer next to it in the box.
Step 3: They turn their paper over and look for all of the compound words (our focus for the week) they can find in the story.

TADA!! Easy Peasy lemon squeezy! They LOVE this, and they feel oh so independent completing this activity! CLick on the bear to download your copy...

I also have one for our story next week, which is If You Give a Pig a Pancake. If you would like it, please leave a comment below and let me know!
