If you follow me other places like FB or Instagram, then you have already seen this picture, but I wanted to share where I decided to hang the anchor chart.
I put it right next to our door so that when we leave the room for specials, lunch, recess, etc that the students see the anchor chart over and over. We also say it as a class as it has a nice sing-songy tune to it!
I need a few more days with this topic before I assess my kids (because subtraction with regrouping is HARD stuff) so I put together this little packet for you too! You can snag it by clicking on the picture below and heading to my TPT store!
Even though we have moved on to much more difficult concepts, my kids are using my Sum Fall for 2nd graders Packet to work on our automaticity in adding. I use this packet during Math Work Stations. I keep preaching to them that the better we are at our basic addition and subtraction facts, the easier the rest of the year (or math forever) will be!
We are up to our elbows in informational writing in my classroom. I pulled out one of my tried and true snacks to use as an example for How-To writing.
Tuesday- We made spider crackers and wrote as a class.
Wednesday- We wrote the procedures on our own.
Thursday- We went to the preschool class to use our directions and make the snack with the cuties!
Friday- We began writing our individual How-To pieces.
Here is my very own cutie-preschooler making her own snack!
Next we did this AWESOME art project. I love crafts, I do... BUT I LOVE real art.
I am not yelling at you---I promise.
During Nash's karate class twice a week, I sit with this super talented and fun teacher from a few miles down the road and talk about school. She suggested this art project and I am SO glad she did.
We read Crankenstein (adorable), made our own Frankensteins with oil pastels (double adorable), and wrote about our own personal connections to the book (ding ding ding-standards).
Here is my Frankenstein:
And here are just a couple examples from my OOBER talented kiddos:
I cannot believe that it is NOVEMBER already, BUT I am super excited that last weekend I busted my tail to have November Busy Teacher finished! It made getting ready for homework next week so much easier!
If you are looking for first grade centers for November...look no further :)
I will be marching these across the hall to my first grade buddies tomorrow. No need for them to sit in my file cabinets!
Or you can get them bundled here:
My big plan is to work on November 2nd grade Centers today.... in between preparing for the week and visiting the Dinosaur Extravaganza with Nash :) We shall see!
