My day went pretty quick for the most part--and guess what??? I took a couple pics...nothing major, but just wanted to show y'all that I do use the things I make in my classroom lol ;) We started out our morning with our centers. We played
OH DEER (with sight words) This is a variation to bang. It's available on TPT, but I also made an S-blend version that you can get here.
We put the words in a gift bag. (*Sidnote* This cutie belongs to a friend/coworker--when his center group first started playing the game he said "I HATE THIS GAME.....come to find out, he kept drawing the OH DEER cards)
They were also working on sorting statements and questions. They worked as a group sorting the ornament sentences. Then they had to each choose one statement and one question to record on their paper with proper capitalization and punctuation. Then I allowed them to draw a picture of it on the back. (This is in my TPT store.)
Some students were working on an S-blend review game. It's also available on TPT with a few other activities. They were to read their word card, and state the blend. Then roll the dice and move that many spaces.
HERE to get it.
We read these two stories.....
If you've never read the one about how the reindeer got their antlers---it's cute. It does mention about the Maker and Angels, but it's just a really NEAT story. We talked about reindeer, and we viewed some pictures on the projector. Then we made reindeer fact books. I just love how one of my little girls decorated the front of her book. Isn't it cute????
But my whole day wasn't all fun and games with the Christmas-y stuff---Bummers! We are working on solid shapes. I made a shape sort. You can click the picture below to grab it.
But seeing that it is almost Christmas---here's a short vowel/silent e sort with recording sheets. You can click the picture below to grab it! :)
We're almost there!!! Here's hoping that tomorrow goes just as smooth (for my SUB) ;) How are the rest of you handling your last few days?
