Teacher Appreciation Giveaway - Final Day!

I hope you all had an enjoyable week and got the appreciation you deserved!  What a busy one for me and it hasn't stopped yet.  Our First Graders are performing today for their moms and I can't help laughing about the words in the songs.  If I am able to get the video to turn out, I will try and post it this weekend.  They are so darn cute!!  In the meantime, enjoy this last freebie that is part of my Teacher Appreciation Giveaway.  This is a writing activity to help keep your students engaged during the last days of school.  I designed it so it can be used with K-3 kiddos. It includes things like writing about their favorite classroom activities and what they want to learn in the next grade.  I hope you enjoy it!  Have a great weekend!!

Valentine's Kick Off Week: Day 2

The students are really enjoying this week and all the different activities we are doing to celebrate the upcoming Valentine's Day.  We follow the Reading Street program and happen to be in Unit 4 which talks about Treasures.  This goes perfect with our story of the week and our math lessons this week.

Today the students made "Treasure Boxes" during Writer's Workshop.  They brainstormed things from their past or special surprises that meant a lot to them and will always be remembered.  Some of the ideas were past vacations, special surprises from their parents, a friend at school, etc...  CLICK HERE for a free download of this writing activity.

In Math they were introduced to "Greater Than" and "Less Than" with crocodiles.  This is a great visual to learn the symbols.  The crocodile always eats the bigger numbers.  So if the larger number is to the right, the symbol faces that way to look like it's eating the number.  Vice Versa for the number is to the left.  This activity can be downloaded from my Valentine's Unit.
