The hubby and I went ice skating! Check out these Michelle Kwan moves!
This week we have been measuring EVERYTHING! I totally recommend checking out the blog by Kindergarten, Kindergarten. It's basically been my lesson plan this week because her ideas are so hands-on and inspire so much critical thinking!
I've been surprised this week at what my kids get and don't get.
Does that happen to anyone else??
For example, I gave my kiddos a popsicle stick and they had to find an object that was shorter and longer than that. No problem. The next day, I gave everyone an object, and as a class, they had to put the objects in order from longest to shortest.

Oh. My. Gosh. You would have thought I asked them to solve world hunger! I get that they are two different skills, but I'm just baffled by how they can do one but not the other? A mystery. Today we tried again. We made wiggly worms and ordered the length of those. We still have some work to do.... =)

This week we also talked about winter. We read winter books and made text-to-self connections. We also used our sequencing words to tell how to build a snowman. We made snowmen using this puffy paint (by mixing 1 part shaving cream and 1 part glue together).
I spent a lot of this week updating my word families packs, and they are finally done! They're on sale in my TPT store through Saturday.
You can also get all 5 packs for half-price in this bundle!
These packs include picture and word cards, picture sorts, puzzles, practice sheets, magnet letter activities, and differentiated write-the-room activities.
(Pardon the product promotion. I'm just so super excited that these are finally finished!)
Also, Jenna may or may not get excited about going on walks...
That's all, Folks!
