This is a glimpse inside one of my classrooms. The teacher is Andrea Smith and she teaches 2nd grade. She does such a fabulous job at small group instruction that I asked her if I could share it with the rest of the world. She graciously agreed! At her teacher table, she is working with a group of students on compare and contrast. The graphic organizer is a Venn Diagram and they are reading a passage about spiders and insects.
Group 1 Teacher Group: Mrs. Smith has students use highlighters to highlight the details in the story. The students use the information to fill out the Venn diagram.
A KWL chart was posted on the wall and the rules for small group.
What is the rest of the room doing?
Group 2: This group is working on sorting Adjective and Verbs into groups and recording their answers on a chart. You can find this activity free on Teacher Pay Teachers by The Applicious Teacher
Group 3: This group is working on word endings. The students sort the word and picture cards into cards and record the words on the recording sheet.
Group 4: This group is working on a Halloween Syllable Sort by Fabulously First.

Group 5: Computer Group- students practice math facts and take accelerated reading quizzes.
I have a wonderful group of teachers and I think it is great to share some of their classrooms with my blogging friends.
A big thanks to Andrea for allowing me to take pictures today. It is so normal for me to be in their room but I don't normally take pictures of them. However, this year I'm blogging more and sharing my classrooms has been a big request. I can't wait to share another teacher with you again. So glad I'm getting a lot of feedback about this and everyone is enjoying seeing my campus in action.
