This week’s highlight was none other than our completed map! We added trees, the compass rose, map key, and street names. I also had these $1 wooden cars I got from Target intended as a prize, but has been put to better use! We used them to practice our map skills! If so, and so went to someone’s house…which way should they go? Yes, you may touch the car! Yes, you can play with it!
We also read two stories about our neighborhood. I created a Read and Response worksheet – an idea I got from this awesome first grade teacher blog, and targeted making inferences, and fluency for reading skills. The kids soaked it up, and loved reading their names on our worksheets. I wish I could do more of these!
