Dr. Seuss Preview

This has been a wacky week at school. This week is Read Across America week like it is for so many others. We are getting to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. We have gotten to do so many fun activities in only three short days. I couldn't wait until Friday to share some of the stuff we are doing. So far we have read the books; My Many Colored Days, Fox in Socks, and There's a Wocket in my Pocket. We are going to read Cat in the Hat and The Lorax Thursday and Friday.  Here are some pictures of activities we have done so far and so pictures of our class and teachers on the dress up days. Enjoy :)

Fractions on the Brain

In our classroom we have been working on fractions. I knew this was going to be a bit challenging for my sweet boys and girls. The week before we started our fraction journey, I started looking for fraction games and activities. I found some awesome games on Teacher Clubhouse. I only paid $0.99 for each game. Then one of my co-teachers bought Amy Lemon's fraction sundae activitiy. I used my math games during station time and then we completed our sundaes on Friday. We haven't completely mastered fractions but we are well on our way. Here are a few pictures of the games and some student's work. Also, I added a few pictures of What has been happening at APS recently.
