We have been having a great time celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday but I have been a very bad blogger and did not take any pictures of all the fun. We do a rotation so I didn't really even see my kiddo's that much these past couple days!! In my room, we used the book The Cat in the Hat and made the cutest cats!! I didn't have enough time to extend the activity for everyone, but today after my kiddo's finished their cat, I had them do a response to literature about what the cat might do to their house. I attached the cat to their writing and they turned out really really cute... I promise! I will take some pics tomorrow.
After all the craziness, I, I mean WE just needed some peace!! Don't we all??? :) So what did we do????
Believe it or not, this is the most peaceful time of our day everyday!!
Since we didn't get any of our rounds in the past couple days, I decided we would go ahead and do one...only there were no groups going on...just children working!! Typically I don't have this many kids out doing independent work, but...sometimes you just need some PEACE!! :) I took advantage of this time and took some videos of their activities. They all made a choice about what they wanted to do and you will see a variety of things going on. My favorite is seeing them choose Read to Someone...and they actually do it!! :) Welcome to our classroom.
