Yesterday was our first day back after the holiday break. Of course, 3rd and 4th graders are still excited about sharing what they received for Christmas. I took the opportunity and turned it into an oral writing activity. They rephrased the question to come up with a topic sentence and incorporated air punctuation. They then were required two adders and a concluding sentence. It was a great activity and the students didn't realize they were working because they were talking about the gifts they loved!

I recorded this video right before Halloween and am really late getting it posted. My third grade class is usually my most energetic bunch; however, I believe they became camera shy the day we taped. I hope you like what you see. Now that the holidays are behind us, I hope to have another video over the next month or so. A lot of it will have to do with how many snow days we have. I really would like to demonstrate utilizing the five step lesson planner.
