It was so fun to return to school after Christmas break and see all the adorable snowmen everyone made with their families. They have been decorating our portion of the hallway for the last few weeks and today we finally took them down and sent them home. For those of you who weren’t able to come by our classroom here’s a little peek at all of the snowmen created by our class.
We also did snowman themed centers this week. Some of the skills we worked on were: ordering numbers from least to greatest (0-100), sorting short i and long i words and sound spelling them, matching sets of rhyming words, writing sentences using correct capitalization and punctuation, counting sets of coins (pennies, nickels & dimes), covering a snowman shape with pattern blocks, graphing and writing and solving addition and subtraction problems.
We also worked hard on a writing project that I will share with all worked hard to use details in our writing and concentrate on applying all of the spelling strategies we have learned as well as proper use of capital letters and punctuation marks.
