Another weekend comes and goes. Teachers everywhere start to look forward to another week of supportive administrators, happy parents, well behaved children, perfect lessons and perfect centers. And then we wake up on Monday morning! And I am pretty sure that this is my evaluation week! And I am pretty sure I will be scored a 2 (below expectations) so I don’t plan to change anything or do anything special!
It has been a very productive weekend around the ole homestead! Just look at how cute we are! We did Trunk or Treat at our church this morning! The scarecrow…in the corn…and if you look closely there are crows flying behind us! And it was COLD! To all of the 50 Shades of Grey fans out there…who needs that when I have 50 Shades of Green!
We will read one of my favorite Halloween stories: Even Monsters Need A Haircut. This week we are focusing on comprehension so we will complete a story map after reading. We will also use this book as our predictable chart. Every child will complete the sentence Every monster needs a…! Of course we will make our F for fish hat because we will not be celebrating the letter F this week! In math we will be working with numbers 6-15, with a focus on writing 6-10 and counting to 15. And what better way to learn to write numbers than to use paint?! We will use paint and q-tips to practice writing our numbers! I saw the idea on Pinterest so I am excited to try it in my classroom! We will also work on making numbers 6-10 this week! The Story of 6…will be told by President Obama and Governor Romney! I made this cute little set to use this week as we start to shift our focus to the election! I can’t wait to use this…I think it’s going to be super cute! We will also be making a Frankenstein craftivity to go with our Monster book! Check out the craftivity here!
