Happy Saturday!
It’s such a beautiful weekend! Sunny and 87 degrees high! I wish I was feeling better. I must have picked up a little bug or something from the kids this week. I’m feeling achy, tired and light headed. Not a fun way to spend a beautiful weekend!
This was a busy week for me! Tuesday I attended a teacher job fair. I met with representatives from a few different school districts that I am really interested in! I’m really excited and can’t wait to start interviewing! I’m so ready to have my own classroom. Thursday I had a formal observation from my university supervisor. I always get nervous when someone comes to watch me teach! Luckily, the kids were on their best behavior!
This week we started our unit on TEXAS! SO much fun! Here are a few pictures:

Using a magnet board, students rearrnaged the letters in the word bluebonnet to make new words.

All of the students wrote and illustrated "My Book of Texas Symbols." They turned out really cute!

I also planned math practice centers this week. We reviewed concepts such as patterns, graphing,  addition and subtraction. Here are a few pictures:

 We graphed jellybeans.

 Students used stickers to model addition and subtraction problems.

 Students built different patterns using spring erasers! I am obsessed with these cute little erasers! Target Dollar section!

Students drew a domino on their paper and created a math problem using the pips on the domino. Then, students drew a different domino that would have the same sum.

I am working on putting all of these activites together and on TeachersPayTeachers soon!

Have a great weekend!

Spring Break Catch Up

Thank God for Spring Break!
I have finally caught up on some sleep and lesson planning (and TV!)
I love my time in kindergarten! We have done so many fun things. Last week we had a few little leprechauns who were visiting our classroom! On Friday, they even left us a treasure map and some gold coins! I am so mad I didn’t take any pictures : [
Last week, I also planned a unit on fractions and equal parts. Here are a few pictures:

Students sorted shapes split into equal and unequal parts. Let me know if you want this shape sort! 
We also made the FRACTIONPILLAR seen all over Pintrest! I thought it might be a little challenging for some of my kinder babies but, they really did great and understood the concept!

We ended the unit with an Equal Parts Picnic. Students worked with a partner to cut clip art food into two equal parts. I just placed all of the needed items (clip art food, scissors, glue, picnic blanket) in a brown paper bag (from the grocery store...FREE!) and passed them out to the partner pairs. The kids loved it!

When we get back from Spring Break, I am going to make a bulletin board in the hall with a red and white checkerboard picnic blanket! It will be so cute!

bye yall! and happy SPRING BREAK !
