We introduced word families this week with -at and -an words. It was interesting to see how the kids did with the different segmenting and blending activities during word sort time.
We practiced the 12 sight words we have taught so far this year. Today they practiced stamping these 10 words. Click the picture or HERE to get a copy of this FREEBIE! Credit to Mel at Graphics from the Pond for the boarder.
During reading centers, my students have power! I saw several things this week about going tableless in the classroom. I wasn't quite ready for that so I compromised. I have carpet squares and yoga balls. The kids got to pick all week where they wanted to sit...carpet square, yoga ball at a table or a chair at a table. They loved having these choices. You could hear a pin drop!!
Here are some of the books we read this week during out hibernation/migration unit study.
We added many new math stations this week. The kids love these new puzzles and the count money station.
