Oscar and Sedsel are the only two who wanted to play
the word pop and match game.
Coloring table at it's best.
Glitter glue art.
Ethan made a piece of art with glitter glue.
Many gamers for the pop and match word game.
Loving the glitter and coloring!
A little reading.
Switching things up. The chart didn't have information instead it had questions. Rather then the repetitive norm the kids have known and read by memory, but they had to think about and read the words. They have truly learned many skills so they are able to read most of the words.
We did our sight word matching. This time, after we matched our words Beth created a sentence using the words.
"2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate? (Student's name, student's name, student's name!)"
Beth "What does appreciate mean?"
Skyler " a way to say thank you."
Taber "A way to care about and love someone."
Beth "Today is appreciate Heidi Green, administrative assistants day. We will write her a note and go sing her a song today"

Berenstain Bears and the Substitute Teacher "Brother Bear is just starting to get nervous about tomorrow’s big history test when Teacher Bob announces that the students will have a substitute teacher for the next three days. According to mischievous Too-Tall Grizzly, there’s only one way to deal with a grouch-puss old sub: pranks! Instead of studying, Too-Tall, Brother Bear, and Cousin Freddy stay up all night coming up with wacky jokes."
If You Give A Pig A Pancake by Laura Numerof . "If you give a pig a pancake, she'll want some syrup to go with it.

We love our stories!!!
With all this extra time each day, and wonderful sunny weather, we have taken advantage and gotten outside.
Playing with Taber's Train.
Making a birds nest.
Making leprechaun traps.
Lots of counting, lots of writing numbers. Practice makes awesomeness! What's the number before 18? Kids would write the number 17. We look for correct placement of 10's and 1's. We practice numbers all the way up to 100!
Library Field Trip....
A walk down the path to the local library.
We learned who the children's librarian is, Amanda.
We had lots of fun exploring. Believe it or not you can play with toys in the library as well as read books. We hope you can take some time to get to the library over the summer.
Puppets and blocks at the library?! Too much fun.
Puppet show and Dress up while reading a story.
