I just completed my first week of school! Whew! It was a "frog"tastic week of fun, but exhausting too. Here are a few things we did this week:
We made AB pattern name tags to use during the first few weeks of school. This was also a quick assessment of who can make an AB pattern and who can count to 10.
Our story of the week was The Little School Bus by Carol Roth.
We did a lot of activities around this book.
The students painted a bus using step by step directions.
We made ourselves on the bus.
Here's the close-up of the kiddos! They did a great job!
We did a lot of shared reading this week. We buttered the "popcorn" words that kept popping up!
The students made a traffic light. We discussed the positional words - top, middle, bottom.
The students practiced writing letters with the game - SPIN A LETTER
Look at my kiddos working hard!
Friday was our 5th day of school. The students discovered that
5 pennies = a nickel. The money is weighted! I ordered the money from Learning Resources.
We ended the week cooking a tasty traffic light. Yummy!!!
Now if you read to the end of this post - here's your freebie. It's a school bus mini-unit. Some items are used with the story, The Little School Bus by Carol Roth but most of the items can be used independent of the story. Enjoy!
