More Frosty Fun!

Another busy week is Mrs. Lee's room, but fun and learning is all over the place.  My little kiddos are really starting to read...I'm so proud!  I LOVE it when they sound out a word, read it, and look at me like, "Did you hear me just do that?"  Love it! We finished up our unit on snowmen and wintry weather...we read Snow Dance by Lezlie Evans and danced a little jig hoping we could bring *a few* snow flurries our way...I think I saw ONE on my way home and that's it.  It doesn't snow much here.  Check out a few more of our fun centers this week!  Most of them are in my Frosty Fun Unit Here...check it out!

The clothesline is always a hit amongst the little ones...plus it throws in great fine motor along with math and literacy...this is NOT in my unit, but I'm hoping to post it as a freebie soon as I find the "pants" that go with the sweater...

Middle Sounds practice

 Spin and count the teen number...

I couldn't resist posting this cute little photo opp. of the reading going on...do you have Whisper Phones?...so cool!

finding rhyming words that match the pics and recording them...

CVC word practice...

building sight words on our snowmen and writing them...

Practicing tallying to 10...we are *beginning* to get it...we need a couple more weeks to 10 I think...

ooops...this is *crazy*...spin, read, color, count, write, tally!  Whew!

Here's how we did the 10 Little Snowmen book...we painted ONE finger white and made fingerprint snowmen and let it dry...the next day we decorated and read  our book...

this little cutie is measuring her hand-painted snowman!

Snowflake Symmetry with pattern blocks...

Have you ever read the poem above...if you can see it...We made Rainbow Snowmen...and one of my smarties made a SnowCAT...too cute!

Too cute not to post pics...

  14. I just bought your unit! Can I tell you that you are a genius!! :-) I love how you run things on colored paper....what a great idea! I am curious...do you run the copies on construction paper or colored copy paper/card stock?

  18. There are some writes of gear that don't fall into any of the classes like farming hardware, car hardware et cetera. Such types of gear are arranged in the basic heading General. General types of gear help you enhance your business or extend your business. In any case some of them might be costly thus you have to go for general gear financing to satisfy your requirements. cash advance

  19. Do you have the pants and shirt counting activity available yet? Love the activity!
