We had a great week this week. From 19 parent-teacher conferences in one day to cooking pancakes for my students, we did a lot of learning and had a lot of fun too.
1. Swooning over spoons! This week our phonics skill was the oo sound like in the word spoon. So, we made this adorable anchor chart.
I wrote on plastic spoons with a black Sharpie, then taped them to chart paper. Easy-peasy!
2. We held Traffic School in our classroom. An important concept of print is interpreting environmental print. The MAP test we take has a bit of a focus on street signs. So off to traffic school we went!
I posted 10 traffic signs around the classroom and the students used clip boards to draw pictures of the signs and try to interpret their meanings.
3. Parent-Teacher Conferences
Well, no more parent-teacher conferences until next year. I had 19 conferences on Wednesday afternoon/evening. I was sp-ent by the time I got home that night. Lucky for me I only had 2 conferences on Thursday.
This is the sign above my classroom windows, that they parents faced as they sat with me at my table.
4. This baby came with our class book order this week! I spent pretty much every bonus point I had on this sweet puppy. Cannot wait to use it!
5. And finally, today I made my first graders pancakes. Our main story this week was If You Give A Pig A Pancake. So, of course we read a recipe so that we are understanding how to read to perform a task. Then I got busy and cooked pancakes for my class.
The students had to complete this paper to write about what they asked for when I gave them a pancake. I’ll compile all their responses into a class book to add to our classroom library.
I’m looking forward to next week, when this will be at our pocket chart center!
Enjoy your weekend!
