    Hey everyone,

    I am home with the flu, lucky me.:roll eyes: But it gives me a chance to prep for my next observation Thur. I covered introducing verbs last week for an observation (Being observed weekly to make up time lost due to Sandy so I can complete my apprenticeship in the next five weeks).

    Last week for the intro, I played Simon Says with the kids, to get them familiar with action words/verbs. Then we looked at some pictures together and had to identify the action/verb. Their final activity was using a provided pic to write their own sentence using an action from the pic. They did a great job. :D

    Now I have to teach past present future tense. I need something fun to engage them from the start, kind of like the Simon Says did; my supervisor is big on having a strong opening neuropathway activity.

    This is first grade, btw. Any ideas will be great!!

    Thanks in advance.
