Last week we finished up letter of the week and so we read Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom. The kids love knowing they have gone from A to Z and reading Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom. I made a tree that goes up on the board and the students each get a magnetic letter that they have to bring up when their letter is read. We also made hats and tree. We just used a paper towel roll, green construction paper leaves and foam sticky letters. The kids loved making these!
 
 
This past week we learned about bugs. We cut out grass and I had the students put numbers 1-4 on the grass strips. Then, they had to count out that many bugs to put behind the grass.


 
 
We also made some bumble bees. You can see some more fun bug activities we did this past week on my Five for Friday post.
 


Next week we will be learning all about zoo animals. Have a great weekend!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share a few fun things we did this week.

We learned about bugs. I got this fun counting out ants instant learning center from Lakeshore. You can get it here. The kids loved it and the ants look real!



2. We made a life cycle of a butterfly.


3. I pulled out my counting out frog lily pads. It is great for fine motor too!



4. We made cloud dough. I used vegetable oil instead of baby oil and it seemed to work well. The kids loved it!



5. The morning class made these handprints and pinched paper to put around the heart (another great fine motor activity).


The afternoon made clouds with flowers, bugs and cotton swabs cut off at the top.


Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!


Our PTC at our building is phenomenal! This week they have daily events planned for us. The theme is Dr. Seuss and they have done some really cute things with the theme! Yesterday we had different flavored popcorn around the Hop on Pop book. Today we had individual lunches made for us (escuse the mess on the desk). Some of the lunches came in bags and others came in buckets...more storage! Yay! :)

 
Also, my new carpet came in for circle time. My kids love it! I used to use velcro dots and the kids would pick them up and eat them, take them home and move them around everywhere. This will eliminate some of that!

 
Also, the Teachers Pay Teachers Sale is going on! I bought some new clip art and cannot wait to begin creating with it!
