During our morning meeting, I always tell the monsters our daily schedule to get them excited about the day. I also tell them if we have new centers in math and reading. Today I told them we had new centers in math (reading will roll out tomorrow!) and they got excited! Then I told them that the centers were FOOTBALL! Hello excitement! Even the girls were excited! One of them yelled out, "OMG I LOVE FOOTBALL!" And did they ever! They were so engaged!
The monsters also went a little bonkers for the number puzzles I created! I dunno why they loved them so much but they did!! I heard some GREAT counting from the monsters working on this center! I was so happy to hear them engaged and really working on those counting skills! In fact, I've printed 3 more sets of these!! (I'm glad I have a grandmother who likes to cut stuff out!)
We also had some craftivity fun today!!
It was a super bowl of common core learning today!! I can't wait to see more of the monsters learning with these fun centers!!
All of these resources are available here!
And now a HUGE announcement!!!! Get ready!
I want to make my blog a little more interactive and I want to have fun with my readers (um, I love you guys!!! No...really...) so I have this crazy (what?! Me?! Crazy?! Imagine that!)
Ya'll know I have a love of silly hats. Here's the challenge:
You (or your class) design a silly hat. I will make the hat and wear it. And even use it in my classroom. And now, here is the exciting part: You can tell me somewhere in public to wear the hat. That's right. You get to make go into public with my silly hat! You design the hat. You pick the location. I will do it.
(A few rules...no where dangerous. Nothing offensive. And I won't use every hat and location, but I'm pretty brave...so ya never know! If you design the hat, you can email the pdf file and I can make it. Or you can give me the idea and I'll do it!)
So...GO! Let's see what ya got! Email me your desired hat and let's have a kindergarten smorgasboard good time!
My first challenge has been issued: Wear a hat with T words while holding a turtle while standing on a toilet. Thanks, Katie from Teacher To The Core!
And this is my current creation!! I hope to have it ready by this weekend!! OMG my kids will love writing with this!!
