Making Inferences with Tooth Trouble

Tooth Trouble  is an adorable book that the kids LOVE!
We read the book and made inferences about Wilbur. 

Next, we used our inferencing skills to answer the question, 
Why do you think Wilbur changed his mind about going to the dentist?

Because his grandpa's teeth were all broken.

He does not want to look like Grandpa.

Wilbur changed his mind because he saw his grandpa's tooth.

Because his tooth hurt.

Because he did not want his tooth to fall out.

Kindergarten writing is so adorable!  When I look at their writing I am so proud of how far they've come with stretching words and writing complete sentences.  Just three months ago we were still just doing labeling!  
Kindergarten is a year full of amazing growth.  I LOVE it!  

Here are my missing lesson plans for Thursday and Friday of last week. 
I will post this week's Polar Bear plans this weekend.  

The above lesson is included in the Arctic Animals unit.  

Tomorrow is Friday y'all!  Have a fabulous day with your little sweeties!

  18. Hi there,
    I have bought many of your units, and am attending the 'I Teach K' conference in Las Vegas this summer and am looking forward to seeing you in person! I was wondering if you could direct me to the spelling chunks or phoneme posters that I am seeing a lot of on pinterest AND noticed the other day in a colleague's classroom. She couldn't recall where she got them from and couldn't find any reference on her directions for them. I don't know if they are embedded in one of your units, but I have searched TPT and so much of your site but haven't had any luck finding them. If you could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it!

  19. Deanna- I LOVE the Tooth Trouble inferencing activity! I am looking for a follow-up activity to do with my kiddos to showcase what they have learned with inferencing. Is that tooth trouble sheet available in the artic animals pack? Thanks!
