Happy Friday friends! Can you believe it’s March already? This year is flying by and before we know it the year will be over! Let’s kick this weekend off with a little Five for Friday thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching.
We were so lucky to have our Donor’s Choose project funded! We got these amazing coding mice. The kiddos can build a maze and then they have to program the mouse to get through the maze to get to the cheese. They love it! It’s so awesome to see them working together to get the mouse through. They are talking with each other and giving suggestions on how they can program it. It’s awesome!
We’ve been working on double digit subtraction. This is one of my favorite lessons to do! The kiddos get to make their own bookstore. Then, they have to go to each others bookstores and “buy” books. Finally, they have to figure out how much change they should get. These second graders LOVE to play store!
One thing that stinks about working in a different district than your kiddos is your breaks don’t match up. We only had one day during our mid-winter break this year. We made the most of it by heading to the Seattle Aquarium! They LOVE to look at the fish and it’s a great thing to do on a rainy Seattle day!
My daughter has a class read-in this week for Dr. Seuss day. Here she is trying to pick out the books she would like to take. Boy, it’s a tough choice! Can you tell what her favorite kind of book is???
We are so excited to share two of these great resources that we just finished! We have made extension passages for St. Patrick’s Day and Life Cycles! Now your kiddos can read the same information at THEIR independent reading level, levels A all the way through M! These are great for guided reading, partner reading and whole group.
Here are my kiddos working on some passages together. No matter what level they are, they can still work through the text dependent questions together because the content is ALL THE SAME! Only the levels change!
