Hey ya’ll! This week we started tackling nouns in our classroom. This is always one of my favorite things to teach. Due to a fire safety program and computer lab my weekly ELA lessons were cut in half this week. I used several activities from my Lets Tackle Nouns unit. (You can get this on sale right now but more about that in a minute!)
We started off by making our Noun Playbooks. I read There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat to them and as I read we picked out the nouns and wrote them in our book. I quickly realized this was a poor choice book to pick because there were only 2 characters but it was ok! We filled up our “thing” page quickly.
Towards the end of the week I introduced Common/Proper Nouns. Here is the flip book we made. We’ll be working on the concept a lot more next week.
We made also made our Football craftivities! I have a class of 8 girls and 4 boys so I was excited to have them make this so the boys could have something to relate too! I heard one girl say “isn’t football for boys”. Here is a picture of how they turned out! This football fanatic loves them!
We also worked on place value all this week. I introduced my Candy Corn Number Puzzles yesterday during center time and they were a huge hit! If you already own this item you can redownload it. I updated the fonts to a more kid friendly read.
I FINALLY have my money unit posted! I started on this unit several weeks ago and just kept putting off finishing it. I’m so glad its finally finished and I’m so proud of it. Show Me The Money is designed to introduce and reinforce money skills up to $1.00 (some of the activity sheets go past a dollar.)
Here is a sneak peak of what you can find in this unit.

One year, we read a story about a little girl who flew around the world and saw many different things, one of which was the Statue of Liberty. When the students were asked to name something she saw on her journey, a little boy said the Spatula Delivery! Too cute!
