Seriously guys this year is HARD! I am struggling to fit everything in and that includes blogging :( please forgive me!
On the other hand I have been super busy in the classroom and I wanted to share some of the things we have been doing while I have an hour to myself (yes I know I should be writing reports.....but I don't want to).
We have been all about trying out new technology in our classroom. We are very lucky to have received and Osmo and some Touchtronics letters and numbers for our Prep room. The kiddos love how interactive it is and it has now become a favourite hands on ipad activity.
|Adding "river rocks" to help dinosaurs cross the river|
Another favourite activity was laying river rocks across a river to help dinosuars cross to the other side. The kiddos loved it so much I had to leave it out for over a week. The kiddos rolled a dice and then laid the glass stones end to end, only one dinosaur could cross one bridge so they had to do it multiple times. The aim was to get as many dinosaurs across as they could.
The last activity I wanted to share with you is a game I made called Balloon Pop to 10, this is great for counting forward to 10 and backwards from 10. Just click here or on the pic for your free copy.
As you can see in this next pic, we love reading to our Book Buddies :) we do this multiple times during the week in different contexts. These littles are reading their take home readers prior to them going home, we also use our book buddies during guided reading and free choice reading.
I hope to be back in a week to share some more fun learning from our classroom......who am I kidding, see you in a month haha. (unless I join a cult)
