Making Words and a New "Kidpost"

I was so happy that I got to introduce my "favorite-workstation-of-all-time" this week! Last year I started these and my kids absolutely loved them. This Making Words activity is with "Happy New Year" and I have a new word for every month from here on out! The children get very creative and really utilize the word wall during this activity. Last year my first graders made a poster about how many words they made using "Happy Groundhog Day". To see this post, click here.
The recording sheet was a great freebie from Cara over at The First Grade Parade. She also had super cute cards but they were a little too small for my pocket chart and I was too lazy (I mean BUSY, of course) to make new ones that were cute. Click the link to go directly to Cara's blog!

We are at it again!!!

I was unsure of what step to take next with my little bloggers so we decided on another small group. I decided on the topic for this post and (with the help of the amazing Mrs. Muir) the bloggers got right to it. Their photography skills are getting so much better! It is still a "shared pen" type of experience and I am typing the posts. That will possibly be our next step although it would be a real time commitment and I love getting the posts published quickly so they can see them!

You can see it too! Buzz on over to my Classroom blog Mrs. Faas' First Grade.

If you have blogged with your little ones, where did you go next?

Bee the Change~
