So, I thought I'd start by sharing with you guys a couple of activities I did with my first graders today. In math, I used an awesome FREEBIE I scored from Lacey at Wild About Teaching!
My math students got to use JELLY BEANS to practice graphing, adding, and least/greatest!
To get Lacey's freebie yourself, just check out Lacey's TpT Store HERE!
Later in the day, I was working with my class on one of our U.S. Symbols....the Bald Eagle. As a class we talked about what we knew and what we wanted to learn, did some true/false fact guessing about the Bald Eagle, then had fun measuring our wingspans and comparing them to a typical bald eagle! This is part of my MINI U.S. Symbols unit that's available at my TeachersPayTeachers Store
In addition to that, I also took advantage of this awesome purchase I made on TpT The Bald Eagle Glyph
Students made their own unique bald eagles based on a set of questions. Take a look at my bulletin board!
The kids did an great job, don't you think??
Now, if you haven't heard yet, there is a REALLY COOL LInky Party happening over at All Students Can Shine!
Valerie is looking for Literacy center ideas....activities/games...things that students can have fun with, but at the same time, can learn from! Here is my fun literacy activity FREEBIE!
Be sure to visit Valerie's blog and LINK UP with your own literacy idea and be sure to check out everyone else's ideas too!
Lastly, don't forget, tonight is the last night to get my VERBS ON VACATION packet for the sale price of $2.50. After tomorrow, it'll be $3.
