But last night I was busy turning my basement into "Gertie's Playhouse!" Much like Pee Wee's Playhouse.
Here is my version (well, a couple of the characters):
I guess that would be my #1 this week. I have been trying to clean house, recreate a tv set, and live normal life :) So worth it...there was a lot of happy squealing this morning when Gert saw her "playhouse."
#2--I found my "Tippy Toe Chick Go" diagram. My husband drew it for me last year just as a "real world" reading connection to our story. I just think it is so cute.
#3--I saw this picture last week from Tally Tales:
We were also doing missing addend, so Natalie and I thought we would give it a try. Wow! They did such a wonderful job with missing addend this week. We were so impressed. So thanks to Tally Tales for the great idea. I did create this worksheet to go along with each egg.
#4-We worked on the /ow/ sound this week like "cow." I have enjoyed doing word ladders with our firsties. Some can do it alone, others with partners, and then we do it together with our Green Chimps. Here is the latest one:

#5--My teammate Karen and I decided to start partnering up our reading groups on Thursdays to share the books that we read during the week. We each read a different Henry and Mudge book this week and then our students shared. It is a lot of fun to see such great reading happening.
