Homophones, Area, and Rocks Oh My!

This week was a short week but we were able to get a lot of activities done. The first thing we worked on this week was homophones! My kids loved talking about homophones and came up with some great words that I didn't even think of. We made these cute pears from Pinterest I found!



The kids had to write their two words and then use them in a sentence. If you are looking for a homophones unit head on over to Jen's blog because she has created another amazing unit!



We also talked about area. I am letting one of our interventions come teach my class because she is hoping to get her own classroom next year. It has been great working with her and planning lessons together. She had the kids figure out the area of their name. They looved this!


On Thursday I had the kids figure out the perimeter and area of a house. We had fun reviewing both concepts!


We also finished up our rock unit. We did a writing project from Lindsey's rock unit about our favorite rock. The kids loved making these and they turned out soooo cute!!


Tomorrow we will be going over to my parents house, where my brother (19), my husband (25), and myself (24) will receive EASTER BASKETS! I think my mom still thinks we are her babies. Oh well! That is totally fine with me! She always gets me a super cute outfit!! Happy almost Easter!

Glad I found your blog. My mom still hides eggs and puts out Easter baskets as well. I have 2 sisters. We are all in our 20's.

Enjoy your Easter tomorrow! I think it's cute that you guys still get Easter baskets. My family is across the country, but I'll be playing Easter bunny for my two little ones! :)

LoVe your blog - ladybugs & the cute song (What is it)! I always wanted to do my classroom in ladybugs (I call my daughter Kaitybug) but another teacher at my school, there way before me, was obsessed with them.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Okay, I clicked off your blog & the upbeat song did not quit playing. Not sure where it is coming from - some open tab I guess.
Have a Happy Easter!
