Interactive Notebook Dayyyyy 2!

It's hump day-- and a crazy busy day at school!  I modeled a NMSI (National Math and Science Initiative) reading small group lesson on point of view this morning, followed by a writing lesson, day 2 in the syllable interactive notebook, and taught an hour of intervention.  Somewhere in there I met with a pre-k teacher and helped a 1st grade teacher redistribute her Daily 5 groups. WHEW!  I'm tired just thinking about it!  Busy days like today make me love my job even more.  :)

Day 2 in the syllable interactive notebook went so well!  They are turning out great!!!  Today we sorted a cards into "syllable" or "not a syllable" pockets.  I wanted the kids to understand that syllables must have a vowel sound, which means they MUST have a vowel.  We went through each word, underlined the vowel (if there was one), talked about why it was a syllable, and then placed it in the syllable pocket.  We also discussed the cards that were not syllables and why they couldn't be syllables.

Next, we talked about lesson 2.  I wanted kids to have an overview of the 6 syllable types.  We made our flipbook and then discussed examples for each type.  It was amazing how fast they caught on!  We underlined the vowel in each syllable.  They noticed really quickly that vowel-consonant-e and vowel team syllables had 2 vowels in them and that when we underlined the vowels in vowel r, we also underlined the r.

Here are some pictures from today!  The kids are really enjoying making them. Now I need to hurry up and create the next part to use!

Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!
