... that at the beginning of third grade, I am really working with end of year second graders. Today we tried to do my Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy activity. The good news... for the most part my students really did great at sorting the sentences and fragments. Which is thrilling to me because they actually KNEW how to decipher between the two. The bad news... I forgot they write so S...L...O...W! After 40 minutes we had to stop for lunch and didn't have time to finish. I decided to cut the activity in half and only use 12 of the cards instead of 24. We are going to try again tomorrow with half the workload and see if that helps. I will take pictures of my kids working on it tomorrow and post! Does anyone else always forget that the incoming group is really last year's grade level still? It gets me every.time!
