Fractional Parts and Journeys Unit 6 Sight Words

Saturday, March 30, 2013
We worked on fractional parts of a set this week and did a few fun activities with it.  I bought a bag of spring foam stickers and gave each child two colors of the same shape and had them write the fractional parts.

We also used our Do-A-Dots for fractional parts of a caterpillar.

We had our first grade Easter Egg hunt on Thursday at the park. My coworkers and I couldn't resist getting in on the fun and we had our picture made with the Easter bunny.
If you teach Journeys, here is a copy of the sight word RAN boards that go with Unit 6.  Click on the picture to grab yourself a copy.
Totally random, but I think my brother kind of looks like Matt Damon.  I think its the nose.  He would probably kill me if he knew I posted this.  What do you think?
Happy Easter everyone!




  1. Dear Dawn,
    I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that I have been following your blog and TPT store for a few months. You have been such an inspiration to me. My district adopted HMH Journeys last year after many years of doing R & W Workshop. I felt so discouraged and couldn't figure out how to add "my style" to this basal program. You have helped me find a happy medium! I've finally gotten my groove back. So, thank you for your activities and great tips.

    1. Meghan,
      Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I was feeling very discouraged as well a couple of years ago and I found teacher blogs that inspired me and helped me get my "spark" back. After following blogs for a year, I decided to start my own blog and with much encouragement from a couple of my coworkers, I started a TpT store. I am glad I could pay it forward. Good luck and thanks again for taking the time to let me know. It is greatly appreciated!!

  2. Can you share your fractional worksheet or tell me where you got it.. Thank for your time.
