Review Week Last Week, Mitten Unit, and Valentine Things Arriving

It has been a great long weekend.  I feel like I have been able to accomplish a ton this weekend.  We are back to school tomorrow with a full 4 day agenda.  Our 2nd 9 weeks ended on Friday, the 13th.  So I took the weekend off and decided I was going to work a little each night this coming week to get my grade cards completed.  It really won't take that long...the comments take the longest!  Last week we reviewed a lot of things and assessed many items to wrap up the 9 weeks.  Here are some of the review things we did last week.

Working on an addition fact family game
This student is working on our Addition Facts For Snowy Days Unit.  I was impressed at how well the students did on this fact family. 

Students reviewing our Popcorn Words

These students reviewed some of our popcorn words through a spinner game.  Watch for new ideas coming...several students know their kindergarten words, now we are going to work on enrichment with these students. 

Students working on one of our Snowman Writing/Reading Activities

Reviewing those teen numbers
These Teen Number Spinners worked perfect for our teen number review.  The list is getting much shorter, but still have some kids that need to review those teen numbers.

Beginning to be able to work independently on decomposing numbers.

Composing and Decomposing Numbers has been a unit that we just started to work on a little harder now that the kiddos really understand those numbers 0-20.  Our "big" unit on this standard will be coming up real soon.

I designed some fun The Mitten activities for me to use this week.  I will hopefully get them posted and pictures early this week.  Our printer at school has been down since Friday.  Lots of activities in this unit on retelling.
Some new units for February have been up and loaded on our TPT store.  Check these units out...More coming this week along with pictures.
