Please hold me. I’m starting to see the glimmer of hope for real life school routines while also still in repeat that one more time ok one more time…no wait…one more time mode. The reality of the FULL SCHOOL YEAR ahead is sinking in. It’s getting SO REAL up in here y’all. Ok, no I don’t really talk like that. I’m hyped up on diet green tea right now.
So lately we have been doing all kinds of my favorite beginning of the year “stuff” while also picking up the structure of our normal day. This week we go serious about short a. Last week apparently was all fun and games.
We have been doing our real word work routine this week using my short a cvc activities. Total slam dunk! “I love this miss tonsil!” insert toothless grin here.
Back at my teacher table we have been working in small group on phonological awareness with short a cvc words. Monday and Tuesday we rolled and tapped the sounds. Wednesday we wrote the sounds in elkonin boxes when we landed while our friends sounded out with us. Let’s just say these cuties have got this down!
Ok hit rewind….Here’s something we started with for writing and I forgot to ever take pictures of it until today on my iphone. Sorry for being tardy to the party. I love reading Swimmy and Rainbow Fish as back to school stories. This little project fits right in! OFISHally writers!
What’s happening in math? Well lots of hands-on basics!
This week we dabbled in tally marks, numbers to twenty, number line, comparing numbers to 12, and subitizing.
In science we made water walk using Kristen’s experiment! So cool!
The guided math rotation power point is keeping us on track!
We use the reading one too of course!
Early this week we finished off our self portrait writing. It’s something I blog about every year because it is one of my favorite ways to get students writing!
I am prepping for next week. (We begin the prep on Wednesdays for the following week) and I pulled out my Fallin’ For You unit. I about died. It was so old looking after only two years! It got a complete make over! Be sure to get your updated version if you already have it. I added new things while I was giving it a facelift.
