So, drum roll please here are the winners!
BOTH of you chose the RTI Sight Word Kit and it is not 110% ready yet! I am so sorry! I was *so* sure it would be done, but I received some more excellent feedback from Jen Jones, RTI extraordinaire at Hello Literacy, and I really wanted to use her advice! I hope I have done her advice justice! So I added more...and have now resent it to my editor! As soon as I get it back and fixed, I will email it to you!
The Second Grade Common Core " I Can" Statements and More IS ready and is already posted on TpT. If you would like to purchase it, it is 20% for today only!
Now, on to the good stuff!
We have been studying different kinds of nouns in our classroom, including common and proper nouns. I wanted to do a formative assessment to see if students really got it, or if they "played along" well. I think I have a bunch of really good playas, if you know what I mean. I created a scavenger hunt for students to complete in partners. I really wanted it to be a partner activity because I wanted to watch students discuss each item.
To prepare the scavenger hunt I printed,laminated, and cut the cards out. Then I I taped the cards all over the room in RANDOM order. Students were then to walk around, match the number on their recording sheet to their card and circle common or proper. When students are done they brought the recording sheets back to me in exchanged for one of those yummy candy corn pumpkins because I could. So there.
But of course it did not work out that way. Sigh. It was a rough day at the office and we had a lot of chatty and listening concerns so I made them put their heads down and be silent for the 15 minutes I had scheduled. I am a grinchy kinda teacher apparently and I park my broomstick in my storage closet.
But I didn't want the activity to go to waste so I am sharing it here! It created it in black and white OR color so teachers could chose the best way to print! An answer key is included (I hope it is all correct- I was very sleepy when I made it!).
I was so disappointed that we didn't get to do this (who is the biggest kid in the room?- ME!) that I have started making other seasonally themed hunts! :)
