sour to sweet

face it, no matter how ill you get with the kiddos this time of year
{it’s not just ME is it??}
they are so sweet when they leave! I always want em back next year!
all our grade level have a set awards day
it’s that time parents come out and await the amazing award their baby deserves is awarded
year after year I try to find the best way to go about this hour long performance
last  year I was completely head over heels for my class
this year took some getting used to, but I’m there for the most part!
I have decided to pull out the old favorite candy awards!
I have ogled at these for a few years, but finally got around to making them fit me and my standards for excellency!
here are some examples of the awards. they are full color and feature a picture of the candy represented. I kept it all lighthearted and fun! they also come in black and white! just copy on fun paper! Don't forget the shopping list!

Area Amigos

not much to share
atrocious week at school
but on to area
our Math Expressions has “mini-units” in between each long unit. they focus on upper grade skills and act as a sort of intro. This week we focus on transformations and area {by counting square units} These were both in my curriculum as a 4th grade teacher so I got to pull out all the stops! We explored tessellations and played Tessellation Town in the lab. We talked about how much mulch we will need for our garden, and we made Area Amigos. We even used real life graphing paper! ohh! ahh!

Download the recording sheets and little sign freebie here!






we also used shape tracers to make pictures using only 2D figures {our next mini-unit is 3D figures} I love how these always turn out. Here are a few in progress.


We’ve also been loving our quail eggs. There’s Buddha paperweight {from target of course} watching over them-or really holding down the screen so they don’t roll. I will share more on what we do later on.



And we are really loving Hope King’s iPoetry unit, too! We are covering one type of poem a day and adding our little apps as we write! I can’t wait to share with mommies!

Here’s the concrete poem we wrote together. IMG_0738

And I leave you with these by my budding photog
