Parents I am so sorry that I have gotten so far behind in posting our classroom happenings!
So tonight as I watched the Jayhawks fall in the Big 12 tournament I decided to catch up and get you up to date.
Here is a look at our Valentine Fun! Love was in the air as we decorated our room for our valentine party!
We did some really cute crafts. One of the kids favorites was making Splat the Cat after reading the book Love, Splat by Rob Scotton.
Cara at the First Grade Parade shared this fun activity with us. We also decorated our valentine sacks for our party.
We loved sharing our party fun with all of our parents!
Next up… studying PRESIDENTS!
We spent a week learning about our Presidents. We used this theme to do our centers also. The kids worked on these skills at center time: Eagle Eye Editing-fixing sentences with incorrect grammar usage/mechanics/spelling , Presidential Top It-using numbers to see who could make the largest tens and ones number playing like “war”, Stars and Stripes Syllable Sort-sorting words with 1/2/3 syllables, President Sentence Scramble-sorting words to make complete sentences and facts, All Star Order- ordering numbers using a hundreds chart to show 1 more, 10 more, 1 less, 10 less and seeing those patterns, President ABC Order-putting a group of president’s names into abc order, Tally Up the Votes-work on counting tally marks and compare votes for presidents to see who wins, Presidents on the Coins-matching up amounts of coins with their values.
We also read several stories about Abe and George and did some cute crafts. I only got a picture of Abe and his famous hat!
We finished up February with
TEETH FOR KEEPS!
Learning how to care for our teeth and problems kids have with their loose teeth and what does the tooth fairy do with all those teeth! We wrote these Teeth for Keeps tips of how we can make sure we keep our teeth healthy.
I didn’t get very many pictures this week but all of our centers also were “tooth” related.
We loved reading Arthur’s Tooth and making this adorable art project that my friend Mrs. G shared with me a long time ago! Thanks Mrs. G…the kids loved making Arthur!
Now we can get on to
