I love Eric Carle!

 I introduced "Sequence of Events and Plot" to my students. I decided to use several Eric Carle's books to make the lesson fun and COLORFUL!!! I love this author and his books are perfect for my 1st graders.

We started the week reading "La oruga muy hambrienta" It was perfect because we reviewed the days of the week and sequence of events at the same time. Here are some pictures of their final work.

We also read "Oso, Oso, pardo, ¿que ves ahí?  and it was a great way to review question marks. My kiddos wrote their own "Oso pardo" book,  but sadly I forgot to take pictures. :(

We ended the week reading "Don Caballito de Mar," and  it worked perfect for a Plot activity. My students were able to identify and remember the story elements without a problem. I think that the colorful pages of the book helped my little ones stayed focus and remember every detail of the story ;).

Here are some more pictures of my students work!

 Have fun and 
Have a great weekend!

Clifford, personaje y ambiente!

Esta semana aprendimos acerca de personaje y escenario (ambiente). Así que tuvimos un invitado muy especial que nos ayudo a entender mejor aun este concepto... Clifford! Toda la semana estuvimos leyendo cuentos del Gran Perro Colorado Clifford y mis estudiantes quedaron maravillados a la misma vez que aprendieron muchísimo acerca de lo que es un personaje y su ambiente.

Aquí les muestro algunos de los trabajos que hicimos:
Al final de la semana ya mis estudiantes sabían  tanto de Clifford que pudieron escribir el orden de suceso de la historia sin problemas. :)

Para el cierre de unidad hicimos unos lindos collares de Clifford. Usamos galletitas para perritos y las decoramos con orejas y ojitos. 

Espero que tengan una bonita semana.

Cute Pencils

I posted the cute pencils I made for my bulletin board, and several of you wanted to know how to make it, so here it goes!

Yellow Construction Paper
Pink Construction Paper
Foil Paper
Manila Paper
Toilet Paper Rolls

1. Color the manila paper as the pencil tip.

 2. Paste it on the top of the toilet paper roll.

 3. Cut the edge of the yellow paper, using craft scissor to make the look of a sharpened pecil.

4. Paste the yellow paper around the roll. 

 5.Paste the pink construction paper over the yellow paper. The pink paper will be your eraser.

6.Finally you are going to paste the foil paper between the pink and yellow construction paper.

 And there you have your pencil! Easy to make and very cute to decorate your classroom!

Have a great week!

Fun First Week!

I survived my first week of school in 1st grade!!! I ended up super exhausted, but it was worth it! We had a great week! Here are some pictures of some of the activites we did!

 We discussed bus rules and good behavior and created this cute school bus to write the rules inside of it! 
We completed our student-generated alphabet, and I was impressed how good it turned out!

I LOVE my bulletin board. I made a cute pencil for each of my students to display their work. They loved it and the bulletin looks great with their first writing activity about "La Srta. Nelson ha desaparecido".

Here is a close-up of "La Srta. Nelson"

 I really enjoyed my week, but I am thankful of the long weekend and my wonderful husband! He planned a fun family Sunday and we had a great day! Now I am ready for another fun week on Tuesday!

Have a great week!
