Got 5 minutes….

Reading, Thinking Maps

So you know that time in your day where you have about 5 minutes until it’s time to go to recess or about 5 minutes until you need to move onto the next activity, but it’s too soon to really get started on something else.  Well, here’s an activity I often use as a filler in my room.  It’s quick and also still educational! Each week we learn a new sound/spelling in first grade with our reading program.  Since our school is Thinking Maps trained one of the activities I throw in as that quick five minute filler is making a circle map with our sound/spelling of the week. It’s a quick activity, allows for each child to participate and be engaged, and gives kids an opportunity to review and practice our reading sound of the week.
