I have been soooo busy reading fabulous blogs that I haven't updated my own. So this will be quite a random post! We just concluded our unit on penguins and thanks to all the fabulous bloggers who gave me tons of ideas, we had a blast! Here are some of my students adding to our are/can/have chart. They named the penguin Tacky (orginal huh?).
Someone's got it right!
Two of my cuties enjoying a great Kevin Henkes book.
I have completely changed the way that I do Centers this year. My students go to four Centers and me (guided reading) every day. I absolutely love teaching this way, but I am working really hard to create a bunch of games/activities. Here is my kids' absolute favorite below... I went to Adrian Bruce's website (which has a gazillion great ideas) and printed out some really pretty fish. I attach sight words with paper clips and made fishing poles out of dowel rods with magnets on a string. My kids loooove going fishing for sight words!
And just for fun here is a picture of my own cutie having snack and practicing the letter "N" :)
