Calendar Cards

Today I have been super lazy.  I have enjoyed just sitting on the couch and catching up on some TV.  I feel guilty about just kicking back and doing nothing so I usually have the computer in my lap.  I went ahead and finished up calendar cards for the rest of the school year.  Here is a look at them.  Just click on the pictures to see them in my store.

FREE Calendars~ January thru May

My students use take home folders as a way for me to communicate to their families. I use simple 3 prong folders and place the calendars inside. The calendars either come home with a sticker or a note explaining if there was a problem. Please feel free to use these. Just click on the picture to download them from my store.

Wordless Wednesday~ Christmas Crafts

I am linking up with Christina from Second Grade Sugar and Spice for Wordless Wednesday.

Christmas break is only a day and a half away.  I've been trying my best to keep the children engaged and learning with fun activities.  Here are a few of the crafts that we have made this week.  Can you tell I have difficulty letting them do a craft without throwing in some form of learning?  ;)

It's a little difficult to see what we did with the candy canes but there are numbers 10, 20, etc on each circle.  The students cut out the circles, ordered them by counting by tens and then shaped and glued them into a candy cane.

What kind of Christmas crafts have your students made this year?

Five for Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

This week our school had a pumpkin decorating contest.  The pumpkins had to be based off of characters from a story and they could not be carved.  Our pumpkin, was The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Our class was so excited that we came in 3rd place raising the most money for PreK-2nd.

Next week, our school will be participating in Red Ribbon Week.  Each class will be decorating their door.  We decorated ours today with the help of Pamela Zweygardt.  

Our kids had so much fun decorating the minions!  I think they are adorable!

This week we have been hitting teen numbers hard.  We have been working on these teen number sorts.

We completed this coloring page to practice some of our sight words that look similar.

Lastly, I made these number puzzles.

I made three different puzzles: numbers 1-10, 11-20, and 21-30.  The students completed them based on their ability level.

These Halloween activities and more can be found in my Halloween Centers packet.

Scaredycrow Craft & Writing

This week we have been doing many different scarecrow activities.  I ordered three new books for this week: Scaredycrow, The Little Scarecrow Boy and The Scarecrow's Hat.

I love all three of these books.  Today I read Scaredycrow and then the kids completed a scarecrow craft and responded to the story by telling me what scares them.

Here is what our class had to say:

Jesslyn: "I am scared of people saying boo".

Mason: "I am scared of wolves".

Amy: "I am scared of Ryan saying boo".

Leah: "I am scared of my mom yelling".

Xavier: "I am scared of bats".

Have a good weekend!
