The Day It Rained Hearts!!

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

It's February! Which means HEARTS! I have a student teacher this Spring and we are planning great things together! Here is a look at what we did today!
She read the book "The Day It Rained Hearts" by, Felicia Bond. I bought it on Amazon for $5.11 with free 2 day shipping through Amazon Prime! 

Then I found a great freebie from the ever amazing ThePeachieSpeechie. Let me tell you guys, she has amazing FREE resources! Love her 100 challenges too.

The older students really enjoyed drawing pictures of what it would "rain" and then writing about it! 

For the younger crowd, I found some FREE graphics on TpT from Olivia Joiner.
Update: I WILL be posting this in my store tonight! Will post a link later! Olivia Joiner gave me permission!!  
Here is a 3 part sequencing. I cut out the pictures, shuffle and have them sequence 1, 2, 3. 
I am trying to use "First, Next, Last," more often in conjunction with the Story Grammar Marker (see below for the Who, What, When, questions, use those first then use "First, Next, Last"). 
6 step sequencing for higher level students
Then...I decided I wanted to see if the students could match the animal to the correct Valentine card.

Last are the WH questions that go along with the First, Next, Last sequencing. Ask WH questions first to get the Character and Setting!
Note: I always like to throw a Why question in there. Why did she send Valentine cards? Why did she think it was raining hearts? Why do we give cards on Valentine's day? and so on! 

Go buy the book and make an easy sequencing task! I had fun and so did the kids!

  1. Thank you for sharing the clipart link and showing how to make these cards. I have always wanted to put something like this together but not being very tech savy, wasn't sure how to do it.

  2. Thanks for sharing! This is such a cute book...and now I have more companion materials to go along with it! It's great that you made a 3 step and 6 step sequencing.
