Today we worked on measuring the height of objects. First, I had to make sure they knew what the word "height" meant. After making sure they knew that height is how TALL something is, then we set out in the classroom to do some measuring. Each student had a small booklet with 4 numbers in it. So, if on their first page the number was 4, they had to find something in the classroom about 4 blocks tall. Here are some pictures of the class hard at work:

The 100th day of school was Thursday, Jan. 26. This is always a fun day of school for us all! We started the day with the kids walking into the classroom with "Celebration" playing! I found out we have some top notch dancers in our class!!! :)
We had a busy day that day with several different "100 centered" activities. Some included; building a structure with 100 cups, using 1-0-0 to create a picture, writing 100 words we see around the room, and our Fruit Loop necklaces, of course!
Here are some other pictures of what we are working on in the classroom.
We are working hard on syllables. Here I made these picture cards, and we put balls of Play-Doh inside each circle. They smoosh the playdoh with each syllable.

We are starting a brand new year off, and kicked it off with our 2017 goals. We made these party hats and wrote 3 of our goals for this year.
In Math, we are thoroughly enjoying our Math binders, with our PB&J partners. They work on several skills in these binders, using a very hands on approach.

We also have been using our monthly cards to help us with popular words we may be writing about that particular month.
If you are an educator, or home school parent, these cards are free in my TPT store. Click here to find them.
We have started working on digraphs, and the /ch/ sound is our first one.
Here are some of our winter art projects we have been working on:
I just love the phonetic spelling!
We did the following art project by first reading "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", and then choosing each student's favorite food/drink.
