Presidents Day #2 and #3
I was out this week on Tuesday and it was just chaos in my room and I cringe thinking about the guest teacher I had that day. 😦 They did complete the Pattern Block Snowflake and several Sudoku puzzles while I was away. You can find the snowflake on the PDF page under “P”. Click on it twice to make it actual size.
Wednesday, I was back and we picked up with President’s Day activities again.
The children played a game where they had to stand a penny on it’s side and then bump the table. They tallied whether it fell heads or tails side up. I let them do this for 15 minutes and then we counted up our tallies on our papers and wrote that number at the bottom. We then brought our papers to the floor and tallied up what everyone had written down and made a class total. In our room, the penny was much more likely to fall heads side up.
I got this page from a Scholastic teacher book about July I think (it’s thin and blue–they have them for all the Holidays and other special days)
We also read Silly Sally and I showed the children the drama props I have to go with the story. We talked about right side up and upside down. We also completed our Predictable Chart titled, “Silly Sally can…” and touch read the sentences. Lots of the day was spent playing catch up from Tuesday when NOTHING got done…not even calendar! 😦
