The stomach flu attacked my family this weekend- I know, gross right?
Well we are all fine now and ready for the rest of the week.
Last week we concluded a study on African Savanna. Did you know I have this Learning Log in my TPT store?
It was actually my very first item in my store! No judgement on my lack of styling back then- I have learned a lot :)
We also read the book Pinduli? Have you read it? It is FABULOUS. The vocabulary is through the roof, and the text provides a great starting point for a discussion on bullying and how you should treat others! Oh yeah- and it is set in the African Savanna!
We also spent a lot of time reviewing final digraphs this week! My kids LOVED challenging themselves to beat their old times in "I have, Who has!" It also served as a great team building activity!
We also LOVE word sorts- I mean who doesn't, right?
In math we broke out my Sporty Kids Math Centers to review addition with three addends (and much more!). I LOVE challenging my students with mental math and hearing their explanations for how they solve the addition sentences. If you haven't taken the leap into teaching through small group math at all, I highly encourage you too! I have seen a huge increase in our number sense and ability to talk about our math thinking!
In other news-- OUR CHICKS ARE HERE!
To go along our study of chickens next week, I am working on a little something...
I will be finished by this weekend- I PROMISE! If there are particular skills you are dying to see, it is not too late for your voice to be heard :)
Lots of love!
