Measuring fun

The kids were given the task of tracing objects from the room, labeling them, and then using one cube to measure the lengths. They did a fantastic job! They worked together well with their partners and were able to demonstrate the correct way to measure.

Telling Time

The kids are learning to tell time to the hour and half hour on both analog and digital clocks. Each student got to use their body to show how the hands of the clock would look at different times to the hour. This photo is of one of my students demonstrating the hands for 6:00.

Dr. Seuss Character Dress Up Day

To wrap up our Dr. Seuss week, the kids dressed up as their favorite character. The kids were really creative and looked fantastic! In math, we made truffula trees and wrote math facts on them and also made a picture graph of our favorite Dr. Seuss books. We wrote an acrostic poem about Dr. Seuss, and we just had a lot of fun!

Green Eggs and Ham

We read this cute book today and wore green to school. We also read a nonfiction book about Dr. Seuss. Here are a few interesting facts we learned: his real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel; he was quiet in school and lonely at times; he wrote his books for children and his own amusement; his first book was And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street.
