I popped popcorn in my ancient popcorn popper with 3rd grade and played a game, Poppin' Fact or Opinion, which you can get on TPT here.
Pumpkin Patch Synonyms with another 3rd grade group, which you can get on TPT here.
With first grade, we played "Leaves Are Falling", a game I made with these foam leaves from the Dollar Tree.
Teachers have fun too! Here are my friends Melanie and Christie who went with me to see Bret Michaels in our shirts!
And the fun doesn't stop at school! Who needs toys when you have boxes??
And now that you have read this super long, but fun post, here is a freebie for you!
I have been using the QAR (Question-Answer Relationship) strategy to help my third graders who struggle with comprehension. If you have never heard of the QAR strategy, here is an overview of how to use it. We have focused on In the Book questions for the past couple of weeks. I used these posters to help my students understand the concept.
Here is your freebie! It is a sort of Right There and Think and Search questions. I will be adding Author and Me and On My Own questions in a couple of weeks. Click on the picture to get your copy of the QAR sort!
Enjoy this freebie! I will spend an entire post on the QAR strategy and how I use it!
Don't forget that I am close to 300 followers and ready for a giveaway! If you would like to help out, please let me know!
Have a wonderful weekend!
