We completed reading stations and math stations and reviewed some letter sounds using Sounds Fun Phonics and Dr Jean songs. I seriously LOVE heidisongs. I would be lost without her DVDs.
I am loving my necklaces from sweet Terri at Kinder Princess. They made grouping students for Math and Reading stations a BREEZE. I was able to quickly group students by colors. Having the leis allowed me to easily spot groups by their colored leis. If I needed to switch a student I traded their lei. Each student knew exactly which station to attend. Thank you so much Terri. It's the best thing I've used in a LONG time. I'm HOOKED!
We read the book First Day Jitters and This is the Teacher. We launched Daily 5 and discussed the three ways to read a book. I used Flotsam to model reading pictures. I can't wait to build stamina tomorrow. Maybe we can reach 4 minutes?
Me bags were a huge hit. I seriously need to watch Duck Dynasty because they had some pictures of Uncle Si. I tried to make a connection but I'm going to look it up now so I can relate.
