Counting Coins game

Comparing Money game

We have had some fun with this sight word game. It is from one of our favorite sites – Fun4theBrain. Check it out!

Our Google Calendar permissions have been adjusted (thanks Mrs. K for letting me know you couldn’t see!). I hope this will help you make some sense from the 6 day cycle over a 5 day week. It really isn’t as confusing as it sounds and laying it out on paper helps my visual learning style.

We have completed our social studies units of Citizenship, National Symbols, and Past, Present, and Future. Our focus will turn to the science side of things for the next few weeks as we explore tools that scientists use and the seasons.

We have covered some of the basic vocabulary of addition and subtraction and will soon be introducing some basic addition and subtraction strategies. Here is a game that will help practice basic subtraction skills. Click 1 and 2 for beginning levels (subtracting 1 and 2).

We have a few favorite sqworls in our classroom already: our sqworl for listening to reading, and our sqworl for exploration and fun.

I am working to build a math sqworl that would give some practice on some essential skills for math if you are a new first grader, or a former Wonderful One looking to practice your skills.

Try out some of the activities by clicking on the squirrel… he will take you there!

Have you thought about subtraction lately? You might have been taking a subtraction vacation?

Here’s a fun way to practice a little so you don’t forget your skills! Thanks fun4thebrain!

Just click on the picture and practice! I hope you’re having a great vacation!

Remember all the Pinkalicious books we shared this year? Alexis was the first to introduce me to that character, then Zaina and Anna – but I have to admit that even the guys liked the books. The books are some fun reading and the public library has those to check out for FREE!

Here is a website I found that you can Pinkafy yourself. Oh yes, I put myself in right away… with cupcakes!

After that, I decorated cupcakes in the game section and listened to a story read by Pinkalicious. Just click on the Kids section, then the Listen button with the bee. There is more to explore!
