I took some pictures the other day, so I'm going to share some of the things we've done this last week or so.
First, in preparation for President's Day, we used A Cupcake for the Teacher's President's Day Craftivity. We read Abe Lincoln's Hat and brainstormed what items we might put in the hat. I took pictures of some of the work before they added the cover over their writing.
|I would put my candy and one of my barbies in and letters. (I love her attempt at commas--at least she's trying.)|
|I would put frogs in it because when they ribbit it will be funny. (I love the bloodshot eyes!)|
|I will put my Batman Toy and donuts and my wallet and a candy. (He's certainly prepared.)|
As a bit of a follow up of an earlier post, we have been working on number sense. We're now working on greater than/less than. I have to say this group is catching on to it very well. We played this game. Each player rolls a double dice. The large die tells the tens, the smaller tells the ones. In a previous game they drew and wrote the number. Now they just write their numbers. Then they both have to agree whether the first number is > < or =. After 10 rounds, they circle who had the greater number and count to see who won. We played it another day with the smaller number winning. Finally, I'll add a greater than/less than spinner to determine the winner next week. Here's how a couple of the pages turned out.
And finally, my co-worker made the greatest bulletin board. I had to take a picture of it. I won't have time to do it this year, but hopefully next.
The other day we borrowed some iPads from the library and used socrative for the first time. I loved it! It deserves a whole 'nother post, so be watching for it soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
