Here we go!

Our second Donors Choose project is completed!

We got these carpet squares from Lakeshore! How cute?! The kids love moving them around the room during Daily 5!  Also perfect for a little alphabet sorting!

Halloween freebies and lots of other updates!

I'm a little sad that Halloween is already over, but that's ok because Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I finally finished my huge Thanksgiving Literacy Pack that I have been working on for awhile.  My students always seem more engaged when my literacy centers and writing activities go with the theme of the month.  I'll be posting it later this week, once I get some classroom pics of it!

But before we get in to that..

Look at all of my new books!

Three boxes full!!  MY first grade teacher recently gave me all of her resource books and tons of awesome read aloud books!  How cool is it that I am reading the same books to my class that I was reading when I was in first grade.  Life is one big circle! :) 

We have been tracking our math assessment averages on the classroom wall.  You can already see what units will need more work (addition and subtraction strategies... those missing addends are so abstract for my little firsties).  But I am excited to see some growth over the next few units.

How do you track data in your classroom? I would love to hear about some other ways it can be done! 

Ok enough about the data... time to get to the fun stuff! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I am so sad the week is already over.

In math we measured ourselves in non-standard pumpkin units.  It's a freebie!!
