Phonics Posters

Oh my goodness! It's been so long since I've wrote a blog post, I had to move heaven and earth to get into my settings -- ok, really, I just had to try to remember my password. That's what makes getting a new hard drive so much fun!

If you can imagine, we only have 17 days of school left. No, I can't believe it either! 

I've got all sorts of things that I want to share with you -- I always think of them when I'm driving somewhere, or trying to go to sleep, or something like that. 

Anyway, we did these posters right before Parent Teacher Conferences. Always gotta have something pretty hanging in the hallway. 

Umm, yeah. The mind reading was not working that day. They could not see my vision - at all! Ok, maybe a few came close. 
My idea was to have groups take one phonics pattern we had recently studied and make a poster for it. I had hoped they would put our key word -- like for "ar" it's artist, and then write some other words that followed the pattern, and draw a couple nice pictures. Well, my AR kids came pretty close. Some of the others did, too. 

This reminds me yet again why it is so important to model, model, model what I am wanting. {Will they never learn? Yes, I mean me!} 

Happy Wednesday. I'm off this afternoon to get a filling. Really, as an adult, I should not be having that sort of problem!
