Happy Hump Day

Happy Hump Day! Well, we’re more than half way through this week. I hope your week is flying by as fast as mine. Every year seems to go by faster than the previous year. I can't believe we are already into January and almost half way through the year.
This year I started implementing the Daily 5 in my classroom. The hardest aspect that I have found is finding meaningful work for students to complete at their seats. I created journal prompts that students can use for any story or novel they are reading. This really cuts down on the "busy work" and allows my students to be show their understanding through a creative outlet.
This 19 page resource contains 36 different writing prompts for higher level thinking. These can be used in isolation with certain skills or even as a center. My students look forward to their journaling rotation with the use of these prompts. Head over to my TpT store to grab this item while it is on sale!

    I love these higher level thinking cards. I'm going to check out your store. I teach third grade language arts in Ohio. I've been searching around for third grade blogs and I'm glad I found yours. It looks like we have a lot in common! :)
