My Week in Pictures- Week of August 24th

Wow three weeks down!  Crazy!  This was a SUPER busy week.  We had Curriculum Night on Tuesday, church Wednesday night, and PLC till almost 5:00 on Thursday.  Talk about exhausted!! I am hoping next week will be a lot more chilled out.

So on to This Week in Pictures!


I am going to do this backwards this time starting with Friday.  I eat lunch with Andrew (my son) every Friday.  This is a HUGE advantage to teaching the same grade your child is in. 



In Math we played a tally mark memory game with partners or small groups.  I am using Reagan Tunstall’s new Guided Math units {here} and I am LOVING them.  They are filled with games and high interest activities.



We also talked about the differences between fiction and nonfiction.  I used Froggy Goes to School (which I had already read) and a nonfiction Frog book.  They did so well coming up with differences.



Then they went back to their seats and wrote all about real frog facts in their journal.  We are still getting use to writing without support, so I got them started.




On Thursday, we had STEM!  We are loving STEM this year.  We made pinwheels and anemometers to go along with our study of weather.




In Math we went around the room and counted objects that were found in mystery bags.  We wrote the digit, number word, and tally marks.  This got out all of our wiggles and we practiced our number skills.



We also took a short field trip outside of our school to see a real anemometer! 



Wednesday during Writer’s Workshop we talked all about unfreezing our character’s and give them emotions.  I have the cutest picture ever of my class showing their emotions, but it of course shows their faces.  So that is a no go on this blog. Sad smile 


Tuesday we continued doing awesome at Making Words. This is such an awesome program!! 




On Monday we talked about Paul Bunyan in Social Studies.  I made a really cute anchor chart, but of course forgot to take a picture.  Our H.O.T. question of the week was “Would you want to hang out with the main character?  Why or Why not?”  These are their responses about Paul Bunyan.  So cute!




That is all for this week!! Have a great weekend guys!
