This week we began our Halloween theme and we read the story The Vanishing Pumpkin.  We talked about the problem and solution of the story and illustrated it using markers.  We also retold the story by putting pictures from the book back into the correct sequence.

We are becoming stronger and stronger independent readers in Daniel’s K-1 All-Stars.  Today we read another book from our Read On Your Own series of books called In the Van.

In this story the text is easy for emergent readers to decode.  Students learned about how to find the problem and solution and used both the text and inferencing from the pictures.  We filled out a story map labeling the characters, problem, solution, and setting of the story.  Then as a class we brainstormed a few ideas for writing our own stories with a problem and solution.

For phonics we have been working on learning words that begin with the letter v.  All students were provided with magnetic letters ‘v’, ‘a’, and ‘n’.  They were encouraged to figure if they could make a word with those letters.  Once everyone created the word van they were also provided with the letters f, p, t, c.  Students made words using those letters and wrote them down in a list.

This afternoon for a read aloud we read the story Joey the Jack-O’-Lantern.  We discussed the problem and solution of the story.  Since the story is an easy reader and has lots of repetitive text, students were given the opportunity to retell the story during center time.  Students then illustrated the problem and solution of the story by making their own construction paper jack-o’-lanterns.
