Christmas in our class

It's been a year since I've posted and I'm going to try to do better for the rest of this year... Sorry for all the pics but I wanted to share some neat things we've done. So here are the pics and if you have questions or want copies of what you see just leave a comment and I'll pass it along.

Christmas Around The World

Here's a few pics of some of the holiday symbols/icons that we made when we studied how others celebrate the holidays around the world.

Valentine's Book

I created this book for one of my guided reading groups.  Hope you can use it. 

Valentine's Math

Ok... I'll have to be honest tonight is just not my night.  I worked on these 2 math centers yesterday and some today but when I went to think of a name for them - I lost all of my creativity.  So if you can think of a good name for them please share.

Friday Is Such a Hectic Day... for me at least

I don't know about you all but it seems there is always so much to do on Friday and the day just flies by making it that much harder to get everything in.  We always assess the standards that have been taught that week on Friday and I try to get them all graded and ready to send home but it just didn't happen today.  Today we had our first Brown Bag Book Club.  I wish I could say this was my idea but I got it from Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade.  You have just got to go check it out!  My kids absolutely loved it and were asking if we could do it again Monday!  We won't be doing it again Monday but I have decided to MAKE time to have the book club every Friday.  I just love to hear my kids talk about books and it was wonderful.  I just wanted to take a seat and listen to the chatter... the book talk going on around me.  If you haven't tried this in your class you just have to.  You and your kids will love it.  Below are a couple of pictures I took today.

Valentine's Vowel Sort

I am so excited about this center activity especially to have it posted tonight.  I have been working on it for 4 days because my 8 month old thinks she needs ALL of the attention!  So here it is... Hope you enjoy!
