I am sooooo happy because it's a short week for me! We have a PA Day on Friday to write report cards (which I should be doing now). But I couldn't resist writing this little post to show you a little of our week so far....
My kinders are getting really good at listening for that beginning sound. This activity was fun for them...even though I threw in a few sounds that are harder (/y/ and /v/).
Since we've been back from the break, we have been working on rhyming words and word families. This activity focuses on the word families -at, -ot and -it. We also played a game where each student got a picture and had to find their partner who had the rhyming picture.
Practicing numbers to 10. This was a quick and easy was to see which children knew their numbers (especially since reports are around the corner!)
All of my students love playing games and their favourite is when I take out my tweezers and stop watch. So I created this for them. They have to pick out the "snowballs" (the white pompoms only) and see how many they can catch in one minute. They record their answers in a snowflake.
You can find all of these activities and LOTS more in my Fun with Frosty Unit.
I've been working around the clock lately to finish off some things I have planned for the next few weeks.
Up next week, our book study on The Mitten by Jan Brett. And I just uploaded my newest mini-unit on Groundhog's Day (well, it started off as a mini-unit but I kept adding to it!).
Click on the pictures to take a peek.
Have a wonderful week (it's nearly done!). I'm off to
continue get started working on report cards.
