Our week in a nutshell....
We also got a handful of conversation hearts to sort and graph!
|I used a graphing freebie that I got from The Daily Alphabet on Teachers Pay Teachers, click here to see the free download.|
2. We are still working on making 2015 awesome for those around us. Mostly we are trying to express appreciation in small ways. I am hoping to build on this more next fall into more of a world-changing view. But we are enjoying our "little things" right now. We snuck into Mrs. Elliott's room and put sticky notes of encouragement on her desk! Some kids wrote jokes. Some wrote words appreciation. Mrs. Elliott is our Title One teacher and we adore her, she makes a difference in our education!
After we measured we stood in the order of our height by heart measurement.
|This looks much more accurate! That is why it is so important to use the same measurement when doing measuring!|
This was a great learning activity!
4. We did a directed activity to make Love Monsters. I got this idea from.... Teachery Bits and Bobs, see their post here.
I did not use their writing freebie, I had the students write a love letter to their monster.
|Dear Love Monster, I love that you make my heart melt. Thank you for that. I love you happy Valentines Day. Is it okay if I call you bob. Sincerely, Maddie|
