Hi friends! I've had lots of e-mails asking for a March intervention pack...I'm kinda stuck. My kids that I do intervention with are still pretty much using my January and February packs only because that's what they need...SOOOOO...I'm asking for suggestions on skills your kids need help with. If you have an idea or suggestions please comment below!
Don't forget to hurry on over and enter the Jack Hartmann Giveaway at Mrs. Mayas' blog here!! It ends tonight!
This week we learned all about America, our national symbols, and a few presidents and it was so much fun! Of course, we had some fun centers, and we did some cool activities during theme time. I totally forgot to snap a picture of our cute "George Washingtons" and "Abes" from Cara over at First Grade Parade...and our lovely "Statue of Libertys" from Deanna. I will get those pictures and get them posted soon. Here are pictures of some of our centers that can be found in my God Bless America unit plus more!
we worked with a partner to add pennies
we measured Lincoln's hat with pennies...they loved it!
Lincoln's hat made out of an oatmeal can wrapped in black paper...this is what we used to draw the stars out of...so fun!
this was a "read the room" activity
cvc and ccvc spelling
Another fun week! Happy weekend to all! Freebies to come...soon, plus I'm working on a post answering lots of e-mail questions.
I am finally around to posting our community helpers math centers. We did a fun survey and asked our friends what they wanted to be when they grow up. They loved this activity...I think they liked carrying around the class list and crossing the names out after asking the question, which by the way, helped a lot. I've done surveys before but never gave them a list to carry with them...duh. Oh, and Tally the toppings was another fave...so fun. They got in the floor and counted their little hearts out.
Jamie Mayas, Haley Bearden, Jack Hartmann, and I are TEAMING up to do an AMAZING giveaway. If you are a regular reader of any of our blogs you know that WE LOVE SOME JACK HARTMANN. When Jack was with us last week he ever so GRACIOUSLY agreed to do this so... here we go!
Did I mention that they are ALL autographed?! :) Here's what you need to do to enter
I don't know how else to start this but, Oh. My. Goodness! Our centers this week have been So. Much. Fun! I was so excited to introduce them to my little kinder friends...I think these are the most fun centers we've done, and of course so much learning is happening all at the same time! I'm posting our literacy centers tonight, and math centers will come later this week. I will be posting my new Community Helpers unit tonight, but before you can even buy you can win it! I will use random.org to pick 2 lucky friends to give this unit away to! Contest ends tonight!
we loved the sight word reflection game last week, that we did it again...with a different theme
Okay, so they have to get a trash ball un-wad it (is that a word?) and read the word to see if it's "trash" or "treasure"...how much fun is that?
We are chefs flippin' cookies to read sight words...
I thought this would be too easy for my kiddos, but it was challenging for a few of them...they had to really pay attention to the way letters are formed and where they sit on the line...great practice!
Okay, so ready, set, comment! Maybe you will follow my blog while you are here!
Okay. So, I was terrible at snapping pictures this week, but I wanted y'all to see what we were up to during centers because they were so fun! But first, our story this week was Goldilocks and the Three Bears and we heard that she broke our principal's chair and was seen running through the building once. She knocked on our door and left us a surprise...I forgot to snap a pic (again) of the little surprise, but how cute are these little darlins peeking out the door?!? They were so excited! Notice all the girls ran to see if they could catch a glimpse of her.
We tasted porridge and graphed whether we liked it or not...guess what? Totally forgot to take a picture of our cute little graph...but here's some of our reactions...
