We did a Home Run Derby "Scoot" Activity- (Subtraction across zero) We sat the cards in places around the room and walked around and did the problem. I love that it gets the kids up moving before 9AM! Check it out HERE!. You are in luck it is a TPT freebie!
We ended our lesson by watching this lovely little video! Check it out. It is quick and painless.
This week we are doing a "Fall Reading Week". To me---It is December---fall is over but I guess it technically doesn't start until December 21 so I won't complain. Anywho...we have challenges in our class throughout the week along with daily dress up days!
Monday-"Hats off to a good book" (Hat Day)
Tuesday-"Root for a good book" (Sports wear)
Wednesday-"Cuddle up to a good book" PAJAMMIES DAY! My personal favorite, rocking the yoga pants, Uggs, and V-neck.
Thursday-"Hunt for a good book" (CAMO day) We live in Missouri what else do you expect? :)
Friday-"Show your reading spirit" (School colors day)
This week are are also comparing and contrasting. So far we have compared M&Ms to Skittles. The book Because of Winn Dixie to the movie and Christmas to Thanksgiving. Today for a center rotation I set up a pile of random things and students are going to compare/contrast two items on the table. I'm thinking it is going to be tough for some off my not-wanting-to-thinkers but I'm also up for a challenge!
