Last week we worked on number combinations (decomposing numbers) and read Chicka Chicka 123 to get us in the mood for numbers. I finally made our Chicka Chicka tree, complete with number leaves and number combination leaves! LOVE IT!
2 is the number of snow days I had this week. SOOO our Valentines celebration will be on Tuesday and it pushes our 100th day back AGAIN. That will now be on Feb 24! jeez! These days did come at the perfect time however because I had NO VOICE left after my Wednesday conferences. It's finally feeling better today :-) And lastly, in honor of snow days and Valentines day this definitely happened:
I just had to share this homework that one of my kids completed this week. They were supposed to complete the puzzle (which we cut out at school) and use it to write in the missing 10's numbers on the 100 chart. This is how they chose to do it:
LOL! I love the commitment to gluing each one on...
So I have officially started some intense intervention with 3 of my students who are still working on learning their uppercase and lowercase letters! Luckily theres only 3 of these friends. At conferences this week I had to tell these 3 parents that their children are at risk for repeating kindergarten- hopefully this will motivate them to help out a little bit at home!!! Here is one of my kiddos using Deedee Wills' Super Speed Intervention Activity. Love it- you can check it out on TPT HERE.
We started the Table Olympics this week!! I set it up as a minute to win it style team competition! So fun!! I will have to show you a picture of me setting this whole thing up next week- its awesome! Here are some pics of competition:
|In our first event they had to stack 13 foam cubes up without them falling! It proved harder than they thought!|
|Unfortunately one of my friends on this team was a VERY sore loser so we had to have a conversation about winning, losing, etc...|
|This was the first group to finish- they were just sitting there quietly, hands in their lap. It was hilarious! When I saw they were done I was like you guys gotta cheer!!!|
|Day 2 required them to hook together 20 links!|
|And they knew how to cheer when they were finished!!|
Also- I NEED SOME HELP FRIENDS! How do you all get cute little pictures on your photos to cover the kids' faces?!?! I have to open them in Paint and put a big blog on their face... not cute. Any tips??
Have a great long weekend!! You have President's Day off right?! Jump back over to Doodle Bugs Teaching for more Five for Friday!
