Phew! I really have been meaning to post more freqently but it is just that time where EVERYTHING (grades, benchmark tests, meetings, in-services, bus duty, etc.) all come at the exact same time. I feel like I was lucky to have my plans ready for this week ;)
Anyways, I don't usually do 'themes' in my classroom, but I decided for this month to give it a try. Last week we spent a lot of time talking about New Years.
We used Cara Carroll's Happy New Year pack to review some important skills and had a blast!
During math centers, we practiced our math facts and determining if a sum was more than, less than or greater than 12.
One of our word work stations this week was practicing ABC order as well.
We also reviewed parts of a letter by writing letters about our resolutions for 2013, thanks to Primary Paradise.
And we practiced comparing and contrasting by reading various books about New Year's.
It has been a busy first week back from break. Check back to see what we are up to this week!
