What's the Plan? And it's time to shop!

I am ├╝ber excited about my plans this week! My students have Monday off (and so do I thanks to all of my extra training this summer) and we have a field trip. (Aren't we geniuses for planning a field trip on a short week? I feel like a genius!) With just three days of school work it's the perfect time to do some fun activities.

First, we will still be doing math as usual and I'm adding more of my math centers from my 8 Legged Math pack. It now has 11 centers-I added a graphing activity so if you have purchased this product be sure to download the latest version. 

This week we'll be working on putting numbers in order from least to greatest.

 I also have several students that need to practice number order.

I'm also adding my Halloween Vocabulary Board to my writing stations. These boards are a big hit with the kids every year!

This week we will also work on sequencing a story. I have the perfect book for sequencing and if you don't have this book you've got to run out and buy it. It's absolutely adorable! Room on the Broom was written by Julia Donaldson.  I just saw on Amazon that there is also a movie. What?! Who knew?! {Now adding to my Amazon cart...}

Last year I created a literacy companion pack for this book. After I read the story I work in small group to retell the story. We use story maps and identify problem and solution too.

  3. I love that book - it's one of my favorite halloween books :)

  4. Ahhh we love that story! The illustrations are too cute! Your centers look fabulous. We love this time of year where we can get them excited about learning simply by adding spiders and bats to the worksheets. Pure genius girl!
