It's that time of year again....
Valentine's Day (or week, should I say?)
We seem to celebrate it all week long. In fact, we have already been talking about Valentine's Day and working on themed centres.
(We had a HUGE snowstorm on Friday and I only had 6 students from my class along with 10 from the class across the hall so we couldn't have a "normal" work day - it sure was a fun day, though!)
Here's what we've been doing last week:
This is our pocket chart story along with the worksheet.
Isn't that handwriting incredible! I am so proud of my kinders!
You Have Mail!
Working on beginning sounds - everyone wanted to do this centre - they couldn't get enough of opening up the envelopes and finding the picture inside on the letter!
One of the things we have been working on since we returned from Christmas break is numbers to 10.
At this centre, the students had to shake and spill 10 counters and record their answer. I had them also circle which number was more.
This was a great way to show them the many ways we can make 10!
We had a special visitor the other week....Flat Stanley!
A sweet friend I met last year at the I Teach K! Conference, Beth, asked if her nephew would be able to send me his Flat Stanley to visit as part of his grade 2 project.
I brought him to work a few days and the kids loved him!
Here he is helping us learn all about number 9.
And here is Flat Stanley playing the Find that Groundhog! game with us!
We had to say good-bye to Flat Stanley. He leaving Canada tomorrow and venturing to Nashville, TN to spend some time with Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard.
This is a picture of the card we made (it's the same as last year's card). You can read all about that here.
Okay, here's a little freebie for you from my Valentine's Day Literacy and Math Activities unit.
We are going to be doing this tomorrow so I thought I would share in case you are looking for a few last minute things to do this week.
Students will be sorting the cards according to the number of syllables.
