I have a pretty good class...a couple of little ones that I have to stayonlikethisallthetime but I think once they get "it" it'll get better. So I've been pretty hardcore about procedures and routines....gotta get those down before we can really get to business.
I took as many pics as I could (which wasn't many) but it was just crazy busy this week and who has time to think of a camera! ;)
Here's a peek at what went on.....
Of course---our expectations. Please ignore the messiness of this...but it works and I have to move fast with this group or they lose focus quick!! But it has really helped.

Heidi songs of course...Learning the color words.
Next up---working with partners to see who could sort by color. They did great. And one day we used GLUE! (gasp!) and glued down scraps of paper to sort by color. I really just wanted to practice using glue...hehe got to trick them too! :)
Then we used clip art from Krista Wallden (the bus--creative clips) and names for name practice. I gave them the bus and while they were coloring, my IA and I cut up their names and they had to glue them back down in order.
And of course we read Pete the Cat like 500 million times.....but they love it and we made a book yesterday but I forgot to take pictures.
And in other exciting news:
