Thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting Five for Friday
In Kindergarten this week we have been working on our letters and sounds. We laminated the sheets below and have put them out at a table for students to come and explore. Students use whiteboard markers to practice their letters. We document their learning with pictures which are kept in each students personal profile.
This week I (Libby) was out for a 5am run and caught the lunar eclipse. There's something magical about being up and out before the world wakes up. I used to be a regular runner in the wee hours of the morning...and then we had a child...and sleep became so much more precious. However, here we are several years later and I am less sleep deprived, so it's time to get back into the swing of things. To all my morning runners, this pic is for you.
Ok, now for a laugh. Jeff and I have both been working on parts of speech this week with our students. Students were asked to come up and share verbs on a mind-map. Students were given markers to write down their verbs and as you can see... two of them caused us to crack a smile;)
This week as part of my planning time duties, we have been working on acting out animals and feelings. I laminated these cards and use them to play games with the students. I like to call up a student, show them the card, have them act out the animal or emotion, and see if the class can guess what they are. We have shared a lot of laughs watching students take the "stage" and get into character.
Finally, it's fall! Thanksgiving (for Canadians) is this weekend. The leaves are beautiful and the air is crisp. I love this time of year.
It just doesn't get any better than this!
