He's all in his chrysalis! Bright green with a few yellow spots and a yellow line near the top.
The students did a great job recording their observations of what is happening with Percy. They are on the edge of their seats waiting for him/her to become a butterfly....too bad that takes a little while! :(
Onto what we did today!
We worked on Long E during spelling. I got the idea for this anchor chart that is all over Pinterest!
I added the different spellings for the long E sound down at the bottom after we identified them in the poem.
We brainstormed some together as a class, then I sent pairs to brainstorm more on their own! Boy, did they do great! Here are some examples:
MAYBE? Although it shouldn't go in the "Y" category, what an awesome word! Knee- even spelled correctly!
Library?! - WOOHOO! Pretty cool if you ask me :)
Although I had my students fold and write the categories I whipped up this freebie for you to make it easier if you want to do this in your classroom! Click below to print your own sorting page!
This was definitely a great way to introduce Long E spellings! The students did great brainstorming words and using environmental texts for clues.
