October Printables

Monthly printables that are predictable for students help them to be independent, which gives me more time to work in small groups, one-on-one practice, intervention, and assessments. I've also been known to use them for Daily Warm Up/Morning Work, homework and in my Sub Tub...

At this stage of the year I've given the kids their editing markers and am teaching them how to self-correct...we go over each answer using the pdf projected on the smartboard (in a pinch, once self-correcting is more routine, I've done it orally only) and the kids put a smiley face next to each correct answer...if an answer is incorrect, they draw an arrow over to the spot it needs to be or they write the correct answer next to it..."no worries" is my mantra...mistakes are an opportunity to stretch and grow!

You will often hear me say, "No worries, no drama, peeps!"

(Download the pic above by clicking the picture or right {HERE} That post also has some of my favorite read alouds that support it.)

The kids LOVE their editing markers!
