Good News / Bad News

Got to use my Valentine Mystery word lesson today. Good news: kids spelled lots of words really well, many FDKers even spelled Valentine using memory and sound cues - hurray.  Bad news: my list of possible words to make included - end.  There is no "d" in valentine!  YIKES!  So embarrassing. The students loved chanting "Teacher, teacher made a mistake!"  Because I did make a doozy. If you bought this from me I am so sorry and will send you 3 new mystery word lessons with real words to make.  I have done valentine before but obviously with a different set of words to use. "smack"  That is me hitting my forehead with the heal of my hand. Now here's a cute photo of a finished sheet:

  1. Hee hee! I think it is wonderful for kids to see that teachers are real people too, and that it's okay to try something and make a mistake. Especially with all of the high stakes testing now, it's so important to emphasize that nobody is perfect, we just do our best.
