Hi Everyone! This past weekend I changed the Post Office into The Pet Shop! Students will get to "adopt" a pet and take it to the vet for a check-up. I know they will really love playing here! Now I just need to get through the work I have planned so they can get some Free Choice time to play in it! This will be up until the end of April.
Centers this week are about plants (continued) addition, blends and digraphs and the sight word are.
This is a fun activity, but after one day of centers, I can see that it is challenging for a few. They have to write the blend and copy the rest of the word. 12 words is a lot for a few of my young ones, but they sure love trying! I let a couple of kids work as a team and that helped. It was perfect for quite a few kids! This is from Pam at CanDoKinders Thank you Pam for the freebie!
This week we are only doing the Sh book. The students have to write the word and can color. These great books are from Camp Kindergarten
My students are getting a lot of addition practice with this activity! They have to pour out 10 beans, color the red beans and then write the equation to match. This is from Kindergarten is a Hoot
I bought some cute felt flowers at Michael's. The students roll two dice and build the equation. Then they record it on a little whiteboard. No paper involved!
This is a great activity about addition and fact families. It definitely required an adult there to help students with the format and the beads. ( I also need to explain it a bit better so it goes smoother.)

I will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk (our listening center is being repaired!) and students will be sequencing the story.
First seed exploring and matching and then cutting and gluing pictures of seeds to the correct fruit/veggie
Our final "Short Book" that includes many of the sight words we have learned this year. Now I add "bonus" words and use more trade books for reading practice. They continue to write the word in our sight word writing book and we played a fluency game.
I forgot to take a picture, but my students are using a tree map for writing about planst. Last week we filled in the map and know the kids are writing 3 sentences about plants. This is the first time they have used a map for writing sentences, so it is hard for some of my lower students. I'll add some pictures if I remember!
We are doing several other activities in whole group. I will add to this post with those later!
Have a super week!
