Here is a look at what went on this week in our classroom:
1. The kids had a fun time practicing their spelling words in shaving cream! The other good thing about it was that it made the room smell good too! :-)
2. We practiced our sight words by having a snowball fight! The kids loved this one and they were able to tell me their sight words for this week quickly. Each student wrote down a sight word on a piece of paper and crumbled it up. I told them to throw the paper in the room and then they had to go pick one up. When I came to them they had 3 seconds to tell me what the sight word was on their paper. Then they crumbled it up and we continued playing.
3. Find Someone Who-This was something we played when we first came back from Christmas Break (we didn't do this one this week). I made up a page of the Kagan Strategy of Find Someone Who. For example, one box says find someone who can show you how we line up. So they had to find someone in the classroom who could show them that and then have that student sign his/her name in the box. It was a quick and fun way for us to review our rules after our Christmas Break.
4. We worked a lot on our nonsense words playing the nonsense words connect four games on TPT.
Have a great weekend!
