Frosting Trick....

I know this isn't a real "teaching idea", but I just couldn't help myself! This is really a smart idea! I wish I had known about this when I attempted to use frosting many  a few times!

It's Farm Week

Finally, the farm pictures! We have been doing farm for about 2weeks, with a field trip to the farm also.
Each day we read facts about each animal, then added what we learned to our bulletin boards.
The pig and the piglets...

The cows...

The farmers...

The sheep...

The horse facts...

...to be continued!!

Reptiles and Mother's Day

Here are the reptile things from weeks ago, and a pretty bouquet someone sweet gave to me for Mother's Day...
This is a cute little picture I hang up every year. A student made it for me(she is now in 10th grade!?)
A retired teacher made the illustration page, rebus-style. The kids love to learn about reptiles!

Yes, the turtles were made with paper plates. Some years we staple the pages and make books too.
The alligator is supposed to be an accordion-type book, but I just like reading/writing the facts, so I don't try to fold them with glue on them!

The frog is also a paper plate. I like the frog the best. Even the poster is precious! We sometimes use the frog for "Five Green and Speckled frogs" and do subtraction with them.
Happy Mother's Day! (and yes, it is another paper plate...hmmm....)

Reading Homework

I made these up to send home for homework, and I keep forgetting to post the pictures! I wanted some homework that would focus on the new Common Standards and show the parents "why" we are doing these things. These were a few I snapped:

I think it is so funny that he wrote about Santa in April. But as long as they will read, anything goes!
