A Short Week's Review & Freebie FB Hop!

January is a very busy month with assessments, workdays, and a holiday. Add to that two two-hour delay days because of the do we get it done? 

This week was a 3 day work week because two of those days were workdays and with Monday being a holiday, we've had to cram a lot in this week. 

I've been busy testing their TRC levels on DIBELS (lots of growth!! woohoo!!!) but in between testing we've been reviewing CVC words using the Mimio.

Here we used Mrs. Leeby's CVC review. The kiddos practiced beginning, middle, and ending sounds. I love these three sheets because I can call on students based on their needs so that they can feel successful when completing their turn.

In this picture, he is practicing beginning sounds. After we completed about 5-6 of these, we moved onto ending sounds and middle sounds.

We also had fun creating torn penguins (no scissors here!!) using the idea from Dragonflies in First!

 Sorry they are so blurry!! Ipad pics!

One of our math benchmarks is for students build and draw shapes, including cubes. So of course we brought out the marshmallows and toothpicks and had a blast! (One student asked, "What's a toothpick?")
