We had a short week this past week at school and it was even shorter for me! On Tuesday, I had curriculum meetings and was not in the classroom, and on Thursday, I was home again with my little one. She just can’t kick what she has. She has been fever free for a few days now, hopefully she’ll be healthy now!!
Because it was a short week, I combined our math and literacy centers so that there were a total of 5.
Here is a quick glimpse of what we did:
We had lots of fun on our IWB – my friend created this flipchart – we were practicing symmetry here.
Some jellybean graphing fun! Each child got their own plastic egg filled with jelly beans and sorted, counted, made a pattern, and graphed their jellybeans. I believe the original idea for this came from Mrs. Gagne’s Kindergarten.
This center came from Mailbox Magazine. The children choose a carrot, clap the number of syllables, and write the word (and write the number of syllables). This was a great review for my kiddos since we hadn’t really worked on syllables for a while.
I got this center from a friend – the kids choose 2 different colored eggs from a basket and fill in the number on the number grid. Great practice for quickly finding numbers on the 100s grid!
I used the adorable chicks from Dollar Tree for this center! Last year, I just used an egg, but this one is too cute!
The eggs for this center also came from Mailbox Magazine. The children match the picture to its ending sound and stamp the word.
At this center, the kids cracked the egg, and put the number word (zero-ten) in the write order. They also wrote the number and made tallies for each number.
