First of all, my 2 classes want to say a HUGE Thank you to all of the sweet people who donated for our Donor's Choose project! We can't wait to get all of the new books in the spring!
Now, I have quite a few pictures of things we've been up to in the classroom...
Last week we worked on measurement and area. I found this neat cheezit project on Pinterest, and my kids LOVED it! They were seriously "I could hear a pin drop" quiet during this one. Will definitely do it again!
In partners, they made an Area flap book. I just gave them grid paper and they drew/cut out their shape, and wrote the area on the inside.
Isn't this one sweet :)
We also did some Christmas sentence starters like: "Christmas is special because," "My favorite Christmas tradition is," or "I like Christmas because." Each kid made 2 hand-prints and 2 sentence starters to make our wreath!
Last week, we were hard at work on our Santa letters. Our local newspaper publishes these every December, so we have to meet a deadline. Since I have to type them for the paper, I also email them to the parents... they are too precious!
I previously posted about making a pronoun Christmas tree and here is our final product! I didn't have the energy to back it with butcher paper and do a border! I'm getting a little lazy!!!
This week we are moving on to capacity and contractions! I found this great Gallon Man activity that actually combines both measuring and capacity. It was a little challenging for my kiddos, but in a good way. Plus, they worked in partners so that gave them extra support!
Only 8 1/2 days until Christmas break!!! Although, we have so much to do between now and then that I can't even thing about the break yet!
