Throw Back Thursday

Today I am linking up with Cara from the First Grade Parade for her throw back Thursday. This is such a great idea and I am so excited to revisit some of my favorite posts. Just click on the button if you would like to join in on the fun. 

I am going to revisit one of my favorite posts. I hope you enjoy reading this one again.

 Recently, I had my third graders do a rally coach activity. Rally coach is one of the structures designed by Dr. Spencer Kagan. I love using his materials in class. His structures are easy to tie into any lesson. There is hardly any prep that has to be done.
   This activity worked out to be a great review for our test on sentences. The kids all really enjoyed getting to work together. When I told them what we were doing for the day, all of the kids got so excited! They remembered doing this activity several time last year and were ready to get to work. Below are some pictures of the kids working hard on the activity:

The kids all worked really well together. I was so proud of them and all of their hard work!

Well I hope everyone is having a great summer so far and getting lots of rest and relaxation.


  1. Ahhh Katie we love us some Kagan! Takes us back! We will have to dust off our books and freshen up on our reading. Thanks for the great reminder on what a powerful tool his ideas can be :)
