Aloha!! I loved visiting new blogs this weekend and meeting so many teacher's who just adore their pets. As I look through my list of blogs that I am following I am amazed at how quickly they add up!! I seem to stumble upon a new blog daily!! I also can't believe that I am at almost 100 followers!! Mahalo to everyone who has stopped by and left me great comments and information.
As a token of my appreciation I would like to share a Literacy Idea that I use in my class.
I usually just call this the ABC center. I choose a theme or topic that we have been working on such as habitats or geography. I then provide books about that topic and a few dictionaries for students to browse through. The students then hunt for words in that theme that start with each letter of the alphabet.
They really love to challenge themselves to see if they can find a word that fits for every letter. I share a few books with them to help them get into the hunt.
