We had parent conferences on Monday. I had several parents tell me they didn't have any/enough books at home (or books in English) for their child and asked if I would send some home. I send home guided reading books regularly, but I also designed a simple check-out system for my students to borrow books from our class library. I made one sheet for students to keep in their book bags, and one copy for me as a backup. Click on either of the pictures below for your own copy.
In math, we worked on comparing numbers. Check out these beautiful alligator teeth chomping the bigger number. She even drew scared faces on the numbers.
Today was Bat Day in our classroom. We went batty for all the bat stuff and I need at least one more day to get it all in!
We retold Stellaluna and wrote the beginning, middle, and end on these cute bats.
When they were done, we hung them in our library and called it the "Bat Cave."
We labeled a bat…
…and did a bat directed drawing.
I love their color choices for their bats. We had bats in every color of the rainbow...
That's our week in a nutshell. It was crazy busy but tons of fun. Stop by Doodle Bugs Teaching for more Five for Friday fun.
