Express.” My husband loves to crank the AC down regardless of the time of year
(FYI: It was set to 68~Really? Really!)
So I can not think of a more fabulous surprise than to receive the Sunshine Award!
Thank you ladies… I can actually feel my toes defrosting.
With all that car time, I made a few FREEBIES for you. Some are embedded in my “Peek” document, but this one is not.

I think I will need to work this into my week also!
I have been thinking a LOT about differentiation. Like you, I have a wide range of abilities in my class. Therefore I wanted to add more differentiation in my stations. For the most part, I will let my students self select the activity they want to do. You can see the options in my “Peek” lesson plans.
First, I want to talk about my Pocket Chart. I got this idea from Kim Adsit at Kindergals . Her post talked about this book and how she used it. I let that post simmer in my head for a few weeks. Then I FINALLY got my act together.
I have had this book for few years and L.O.V.E. it! To prepare this station, I copied sorts 1-20 on different colored construction paper. I laminated them, cut them out, and put the sort number on the back of each piece (mucho, mucho importante!)
Students have a menu of sorts they need to complete. They can do this as their center. I also give this as an option for early finishers. The kids are very motivated because once they complete 10 sorts (that I have checked for accuracy) they get to go to the treasure box… HELLO???
Talk about differentiation? I have some students sorting words by beginning sounds, some are sorting by ending sounds, and some are sorting medial sounds.
I have found this is a great (quick) reteaching opportunity. I promise to have pictures of this in action next week.
