It was so much fun!! I love getting together and talking about what we are doing in our classrooms!! My teammate will be planning the next one in November so I will share more pictures then!
This week we talked about character traits! We learned about George Washington and Abe Lincoln. We completed a Venn Diagram of the character traits that they both have! (I forgot to take a picture of it though!)
We read the following books, which were really good because they were bogged down with facts. The kids were able to understand them!
We also talked about adjectives, which went along just perfect with our character traits. We read the book The Biggest Pumpkin, then wrote adjectives that described a pumpkin!
If you are looking for some GREAT pumpkin ideas check out Cara's pumpkin post at First Grade Parade!
I started teaching my small group regrouping addition with 2-digit. We are going to be doing it whole class next week and I am a little frightened!! I think some of my kids might cry!! Wish me luck! I introduced it by making these quick flip chart sequencing the steps!
I don't know why it is upside down....silly me I guess! Check out my post here for more information about the flip charts!
Since I was took the time to take pictures, I will also share with you what we are doing this week!! We are sticking with the theme of character traits and we will be talking about Martin Luther King Jr.!
Again..I guess I turned the phone when I was talking the picture! Sorry!
We will be making this craft that I found on pinterest and made my own templates for. The students will be writing character traits on each square.
Last but not least they will be making this craft of their own personal character traits that is inspired by Mrs. Cupcakes back to school activity here! I also used a worksheet from What the Teacher Want's post here! Once they were combined they looked like this:
It turned out pretty cute thanks to both of those ladies mentioned above!
Well I am off to sit on my bed alll day and do homework in my p.j.'s! It is raining and gross outside! Have a great weekend!
