Happy Friday!! I'm watching the Hallmark Movie Channel (Christmas movies are on!!) and linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
If you follow my Instagram account, you saw this the other day! We were working on building teen numbers and this is a great activity for doing that! They roll the wooden "10 cube" and then the 0-9 dice which helps them build the number. The "10 cube" has different ways to represent 10 on each side - tally marks, the number 10, the word ten, 10 fingers, 10 dots, and a ten frame. This way they are always representing "10 and some more."
We made soldiers for Veterans Day this week! This is one of my favorite activities to do with the kiddos! I have them use sponges to paint with and it works really well!
My students LOVE "The Numeral Song" by Dr. Jean so I typed it up and made it into a book for them! They put it in their book baskets to read. I definitely want to do this for some of the other Dr. Jean songs we do!
We have been reading books about Pilgrims, Native Americans, and the first Thanksgiving. Today we compared the jobs of a Pilgrim boy and Pilgrim girl. This was my paper that I modeled for them. My students seriously think I am the best at drawing!! hahahaha! They always tell me, "You are good at drawing!" or "Your drawings look so good!" Oh and those are SUPPOSED to be chickens that the Pilgrim girl is feeding, although a few of my students definitely were not convinced!!
I have this poem ready to do next week! One of my favorites and the kids always love it! I'm not sure where it originally came from, but it is wonderful!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! Stay WARM!!!
