1-2-3 Come Review A Great Back To School Book With Me
Since the Miss Nelson Is Missing packet has been such a popular download, I decided to whip together a few more activities to accompany one of my favorite back to school books.
An interesting way to review the story, as well as reinforce rules for appropriate grammar, is with the Miss Nelson Is Missing punctuation cards. Hang the cards on your board and read them together as a whole group.
Choose a student to come up and circle letters that should be capitalized explaining why and then have another child add end punctuation.
You can also do this with a pointer and pocket chart or pass one card out to each child to correct with a dry erase marker.
After eveyone has shared their card, have students choose 3-6 cards and rewrite the sentences correctly. This is a great Daily 5 word work activity too.
Another idea is to run off copies of all of the cards, have students trim and collate into a mini booklet, where they make corrections.
Encourage children to read their Miss Nelson booklet to their family, explaining what they did, as they retell the story.

I hope you are getting excited to start another school year, but still making time to relax and enjoy the rest of your summer too. Wishing you all the best...
