Another Crazy Week!

Here are a few of the fun things we've been working on in my classroom this week...
We are wrapping up our colors and shapes units - I got these great color/shape puzzles with bonus points from Scholastic - the kids loved them, even though they were a little tricky to put together at first!

We reviewed colors by re-reading Pete the Cat class book and using our "Shoe books" to show which color shoes he was wearing!
Our color of focus this week - Orange of course!!

We made these cute little books I got from here Musings of Me - Printables!

We played lots of fall/Halloween games

 This is the roll a pumpkin game!

We made these great scarecrow books also downloaded from here MOM Printables!

We played Halloween Bingo, which I found at the 97 cent spot in Walmart, we used candy corn as markers and then they got to have it for a treat!
We made our names with Pumpkins, I made these with a pumpkin shaped notepad and some alphabet stickers, laminated and we had tons of fun using them to make different words!

We made pumpkin Patterns with a free download from Can Do Kinders

We counted ghosts and bats using Haunted house counting mats I got here Class Full of Special Kinders
and tree counting mats I got here Pitner's Potpourri  it's part of her 13 Days of Halloween unit.

With my older students I have been really working on comprehension - we are using the Story Map I made this summer inspired by a pinterest post! I also decided to make it smaller so students could do their own story mapping in groups if we aren't reading aloud. I used file folders and the same headers as the poster to make these - they've been working on great - It's interesting to see what the different groups think!


 As part of the Halloween fun I picked up these Scholastic Magazines with some interesting articles about the different Halloween tales, we need to focus more on non-fiction and strategies for collecting information. This was a fun way to start off Non-fiction unit and end the week!
Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

  1. I hate when that happens. You get all prepared and then the parents don't show up. It can be really frustrating.
