Are you ready for the BIG game??
I live in Baltimore City which is literally bathed in purple with purple lights, banners, & signs. It's still dark when I leave my house in the morning and it looks so cool to see the downtown purple!
I'm not originally from Maryland, so I was a slow convert to the Ravens (Go Bengals!). But now that I've been here a few years, I've had to branch out my wardrobe to incorporate Purple Fridays:
|This is only half of it!|
As you can imagine, our students are beyond excited! I definitely don't want to miss the opportunity to
capitalize on encourage their enthusiasm! I feel as though I could teach them calculus this week if there's a purple football graphic on it! Here's what we've been using as a warm-up during this week's Guided Reading:
Students select a text card, read the word. and sort by long or short vowel. I've been a bit surprised that a few of my little guys have struggled with this. I'm SO glad we're practicing it. As they toss the card in the cup, I always ask "How did you know?" and that's provided very "interesting" answers, as well!

Don't worry 49ers fans, you're well-represented, too!
The frames were a freebie from the talented Ashley Hughes! My students love them & they were exactly what I was looking for (who doesn't love chevron?). And if you haven't noticed yet, please glance to the right side & check out my new avatar designed by Ashley! She was fun & super-sweet to work with and I love the results :)
Have a super week!
