Saturday Week-In-Review

What have my little lions been up to? Well, thanks for asking because they've been doing lots of learning over the past 2 weeks! (Yes, it has been that long since my last post.) Here's a picture story of all the great things we've been doing...

We started our Shape Unit in math this week. Here's a look at all the activities we've been doing during math stations. 

Emergent Reader Trace & Color Shape Book

Cut & Paste Shape Sort (independent group)
Yes, I'm one of those teachers that let's the kids work anywhere!
 Pattern Block Pictures (independent group)

"Candy Land" number & number words review game

 This is what my room looks like during math group are the ones on the rug. 
Of course I'm standing in the corner near my desk to take the picture. 
They don't even notice me with my camera anymore! 

Recess Time!
My kids are little posers now! 
If I take the camera outside, they all yell "Mrs. Lanier come take my picture"!

Yes, my kids bring their "shades" to school and get them out of their book bags right before we go outside!

 Last week's "Letter of the Week" craftivity!
We read "I Wanna Iguana" then made our own iguanas climbing uppercase I's!
They turned out super cute! I love hanging our work on our clothesline!
New Letter of the Week Pack at Teachers Pay Teachers!

 "Super Star" Sight Words
Step 1: build sight word on your card.

Step 2: Match the number on the card to your record sheet and write it!

 Record sheets were differentiated to help some of my lions with their handwriting.

Posers...the camera was out during Daily 5!
Some of my lions were able to do this activity independently.

iPad FRIDAYS have been here since the beginning of the month! My lions LOVE them! 

Freebie TIME!
