During our morning meeting, we take out our small whiteboards and markers and practice recording our words. Sometimes they sit with a partner and quiz each other and sometimes I will give them words to record. This is a quick assessment for me to check how they are doing. This could also be a part of your small group time.We work more on word meaning. We have a few activities that we rotate through each week to keep things interesting. We complete our fill-in sheets for morning work where we have to pick the correct word to fit in an empty space. We create read, draw, and color books where we have to read a sentence, dray its meaning, and color the picture.
