Super Alphabet match

Despite my class being in first grade, we are doing a lot of centres work on what is considered Kindergarten work. 

n order to start guided reading in my school board, students need to pass the Emergent literacy test, and only a handful in my class have, So... during centre time, and during our morning circle for calendar and weather, etc, we have been working on the skills that will allow us to move forward. 

The Emergent test tests students on letter names, sounds, sightwords, concepts of print and  afew other items. 

The pictured centre is quickly becoming a favourite. It's not mine though, you can download it for free from b-inspiredmama

Mini-number books

In our current math unit, we are busy learning the numbers to 20. This last week we made little booklets, and on each page we drew a little picture to show that many of an object.

My favourite is the two students who decided to draw a rainbow with FOUR colours for 4. The student who did it for 9, it didn't turn out as well....  But we're working on it!

Halloween Decor more!

This will be one of the last posts I share of Halloween bulletin boards at my school. Two more teachers have something in progress right now, and I'll snap a picture when they're done to share with you so you can pin it for next year.

Our Fantastic Fourth Grade teacher did this fantastic bulletin board.

This Mummy is on my Classroom door, The white strips are white Crepe paper cut to lengths that are as wide as or slightly longer than the width of the door. I had a lot of fun taping these on.

This Batty Bulletin Board features hand print bats and my students faces inside the windows of our Haunted House. My kids had a hard time coming in after lunch since they all wanted to find their faces in the windows.

Mini gable box

I made one of these on a whim, and need to decide what to do with them.

I'm thinking I could use them for a centre of some sort. My daughter claimed this one to carry Goldfish Crackers to Daycare, lol.

Fake donuts for April Fools Day? In Yellow it looks A LOT like a Timbits box from Tim Horton's....
