The first thing we did was create a sketch of what we wanted to make with leaves, and some of our SK's made a list of items to look for on their nature walk.
Look at what we created in the picture below and above.
We finally got some small easels for our room, these come in very handy when we are doing our guided reading. Here a student is writing a sentence using the words in the book we have been reading all week. We only meet for 10 minutes a day, and the students love it.
Lee Ann is the creative one in our partnership, she decided to use the clock for an even more educational purpose. Great idea!
We made patterns using the coloured gold fish this week, I love how the students all did something different and decorated their fish in their own unique way.
We tried a new game this week. With even more encouragement this game will be a success.
Students love this bean game. They love to feel the beans, and then look for the letters in their name.
