My children love the If You Give ... books and I have been waiting to do If You Give a Moose a Muffin. And then Meghan Harris from Keeping Up With Mrs. Harris posted a lapbook! So we stayed busy for 2 days in reading.
One of the activities had a flip booklet for how muffins smell, how they taste, and how they look. Well, we just had to have muffins for that part, right?!
We were playing a blends and digraph game last week when one of the special ed teachers came in and saw us - she left and came back with these Lakeshore Learning lock and key games. We played the vowel teams and blends/digraphs games during Morning Meeting this past week and the kids begged for them later in the day. My daughter saw them and sat to work on them while waiting for me after school. She looked up at me and said "I have to have these. They will help me spell better on my spelling tests." Well!
Math - with having a combination class this year, I thought I would do a bit of a mixed review for my students. We practiced writing a number based on the number of tens and ones that are given. Then use the numbers to color a 100 or 120 chart to find a picture. These are from Teach With Laughter on TpT. She has several in her shop and I purchased all of them so the kids had different activities to work on. They loved seeing the other pictures their friends were working on. This picture is the ice cream mystery picture.
And a step away from school for some family fun. We had the wonderful opportunity to see "Beauty and the Beast" performed by Liberty University at Tower Theater on Sunday. It was their final performance and the actors had a meet and greet following the show. The girls had not been to a play or musical before, so this was beyond exciting for them and for us to enjoy another first experience together. Summer cuddled with me for the entire show! :) This was meeting Belle and the Beast. Summer collected autographs from just about everyone - except Gaston!
Have a great weekend! Enjoy the lasts with your students!
