As a first grade team, we got together and taught our kids about caves and the animals/ things that live in them. Our kids so awesome, that we let them "build" their own cave and teach the rest of the school... They also decorated the classroom with their work and findings. This was a great activity.
When it was all over with, we took a field trip to Fantastic Caverns in Springfield Mo-- {awesome experience BTW}!!

Dolche Sight Words

I work on sight words with my kids so hard every year! I just don't think they see these words "enough", so I bought the game Jenga and wrote the words on the pieces. That way my kiddos can do their Learning Center, have ~fun~ and see these sight words MORE! ha..! This definitely beats flash cards every day.. My kids will be ^*^ THANKING^*^ me tomorrow!!

Daisy Head Mayzie- Dr. Seuss

We read this book and created our own daisy. "I love", "I do not love".. Even threw in our contraction work and made a few petals "I don't love" :)

The Shape of Me and Other Things- Dr. Seuss

We read "The Shape of me and Other Things". Then we made self portraits of ourselves! The kids had so much fun creating themselves.. It was a great project..!
