On top of all of that, it felt like a Hurricane went through my classroom this week. On Monday we read "Go Away Big Green Monster" by Ed Emberly. I have a printable that came from www.kidzclub.com which looks just like the Big Green Monster. So after we read the story, they got to decorate their own, and then fill in the blanks with the color words.
|The students had to predict which ghost would spin. In the AIMS book, they give a set of smaller ghosts. I gave each student a ghost and had them add it to the graph under which ghost they predicted would spin. Which ghost would you choose?|
|We had a bat station where they cut out a bat and got to use my white gel pens to decorate and write "at" words.|
|We had Roll a Pumpkin and Roll, Add and Color a leaf. (I got these from Made for 1st Grades Fall Centers Pack--there was a bunch of great fall centers in this pack which I used throughout the month at my Daily 5 writing and word work centers, too) I also had a cookie decorating station, paint fall leaves and candycorn graphing for Fall Fun Day.|
|After all of that excitement I then went Trick-or-Treating with my vampire and ninja for 3 hours! Can you say Exhausted?|
|After a tiring day of Fall fun, candy and trick or treating I decided to try a new game on Thursday. Here we are playing this "new-to-me" most favorite and amazing game--SCOOT! I bought this from Lori at Teaching with Love and Laughter.|
|They drew their own faces and stars and cut out their own hair style. It's hard to see, but this boy wrote "I 'm handsome, awesome and not lazy...." haha|
|We used First I will......, Next I will stand up for ......, Last, I promise ......, as our sentence frames.|
On a mommy note, my son is at his first sleepover tonight...tear, tear, sniff, sniff, my baby is growing up. And, my daughter has her girlfriend over for a sleepover at our house. (I just gave them some mani-pedi's) Needless to say, I don't think I will be getting much sleep tonight, worrying and listening to giggling girls.
