1. Today we worked on synonyms. I LOVED the turkeysCara from The First Parade posted last year, so I knew I had to tie them in to something this month! Synonyms it is! I added a pilgrim hat to the top for the students to write their word on. After making a list of different synonyms for each word, they wrote their synonyms on the feathers!
Don’t Be A Turkey! Use Your Synonyms!
2. Texas weather has turned into a winter! 50 or below and I feel like I am in an igloo! I am in love with this cardigan I got a few weeks ago from Pomp and Circumstance Boutique. It is so warm! The boots are oldies, but still a very favorite of mine.
3. We painted our parking spots at school for a fundraiser to raise money for a sweet coworker and her son. We used water based paint so it will come right off. I had the cutest little helper painting with me!
…and I’m going to throw 4. and 5. together! We have already started decorating our house for Christmas. I think we started before Halloween! I recently ordered this sign for our mantel and I cannot wait to get it.
I have ordered several signs from this precious shop for our home. The owner is absolutely precious! My favorite is our verse that we have clung to every.single.day since January 28 of last year. She does amazing work!
While I’m sitting at OT for little P, I thought I’d share a fine motor activity with y’all! 😬 I’ll be doing preschool with him at home next year (his daycare got torn up by a storm🌪) and fine motor + alphabet are two things we’ll be hitting all year. So, I wanted to incorporate as much of both into one activity as I could. 💪 These lacing cards are going to work his little fingers all while learning the alphabet and letter sounds. 🍎 These (+ several other fine motor mats) are available in my store! // Link below 💜💜 www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Alphabet-Activities-Lacing-Letter-Mats-Fine-Motor-Lacing-Card......

A few years ago I used this Friend-Diagram activity with my students to teach compare and contrast! I always love how they turn out! It’s FREE on the blog and I re-shared it in my Weekly Recap (several weeks ago) on the blog, too! Hope you can use it! Link here 👉 // smittenwithfirstblog.com/weekly-recap-3/... See MoreSee Less
Sticky Tables was a class favorite years ago! It gets kiddos up and moving!! 🤩 It works with multiple subject areas/standards and can also be used for informal assessments! 👍 My last post showed how to use it with skip counting and here I show it used with subitizing/number sense, ABC order, and handwriting practice. See previous post for directions on how to play 💜💜 ... See MoreSee Less
Re-sharing this skip counting number lines activity from years ago! 👉 Skip counting from any given number is such an important skill for our little ones - not just reciting 2,4,6,8,etc! Here's how we did it! Put sticky notes on the table, each student chooses one sticky note to start off with and then they just fill in the boxes using an expo marker on their desk! You could even use washi tape to create the number lines! ... See MoreSee Less
