As any follower of mine knows, I LOVE to use monthly themes to drive instruction. For years I have been using my vocabulary units to drive themes for the entire month. The vocabulary unit consists of 20 vocabulary words. I use these vocabulary words to create art projects, sensory activities, classroom decorations and academic tasks for the month. Using the same words over the whole month allows students enough practice and routine to master the meaning and spelling!0
I love my work center rotation system. It is by far the best system for my students in my classroom. My visual working cards make it super easy for my students to understand what is expected of them. To read more about my work center system click here.
