With Thanksgiving over, Christmas must be around the corner. I have been busily working in my little
|Teachers Pay Teachers|
Meanwhile, I have been readying my TPT store for the BIG Cyber Sale
(I think I have been shopping more!)
I have updated my Calendar cards to include 2015 and 2016.
I have updated my Candy Cane Pack
I have also add a new phonics set.
It helps teach short and long vowels.
It also shows how vowels effect words as well as how syllables effect vowels.
Its a growing set, so get it now
at this low price.
It's a good partner to my Phonetic Rules for Spelling

Ask Me a Clue..
Tell me a Guess!
This is a quick filler that I have been doing and have seen great benefits.
I have someone pick a number between X and X. We started with 0 to 20,
but we are now doing numbers between 40 and 70 or greater.
Note that I do not write in all the numbers until we get closer to guessing the number.
Now the rule is they have to ask a clue first before making a guess.
This was not easy at first but as we have learned math strategies they are better at asking good clues. AND I can tell the strategies are starting to make sense to some. They are also learning to ASK not tell a clue. Is it less than __? or Does it have a __ in the ones place? is better than '4' or 'Its bigger or smaller than __'.
They now try to guess the number in less that 4 clues.
We did it last week in 3!!
