This week (so far) in one post!

We have been so busy this week!  Here are a few of our activities we have been doing!


We are working on measurement in our Math Journals!  Here is a page we completed with a partner.

Word Families

I am in love with these precious monster bags!  Each bag has a tag on it with the different word families we are learning about.  I called up a table at a time to play our "game."  They had to turn over a card and put that word in the correct monster.

Thanks to The Inspired Apple and Abby, I found this great monster sheet to go along with our word family monster activity!  We recorded our -og word family words!  The kids LOVED it!

We had to sort the words into the right monster.

Lately we've been having "block issues."  This is a center that I struggle with adding literacy elements to.  So, on Monday we added a basket of books about building different things (pyramids, houses, hotels, etc.) to give us ideas on what to build.  We also added our "Block Creation Journal."

When they are finished creating thier block masterpiece, they have to fill out a page in our journal...

This has been the center to go to this week!  I was worried they may be resistant but they LOVE drawing and describing their creations!  Every morning before centers they get to share their journal page with the class!

Happy Wednesday!
