It's that Time of Year... Boo-Boo's and Band-Aids!

Hi Friends! 

   My favorite teacher friend, Christie, asked me to send her my Band-Aid Book idea.  I found this idea from someone and created my own class book from it. We read Scratches and Scrapes by Margo Linn. Then we take time listening to our friends tell about a time they fell down and got a "boo-boo." They love sharing, so this is sooo fun for them. We then draw a picture of their "owie" and they write it in the class book. Here are some pictures from my Band-Aid book.

Bunny Adding

Hi Friends! It's my first blog and first post ever! Here's a Math station I created for addition.   In each baggie are the bunny and the correct amount of carrots. The children will show the different ways the bunny can carry that amount of carrots in her paws. They will then write the addition sentence. They will take turns with their partner to come up with as many different addition sentences for this one baggie before trying the next bunny bag. ( ex: 4 + 1 = 5, 5+0=5, 3 +2=5, etc.) 

Addition Sentence: 2 + 3 = 5

I also have a recording sheet that I'll post soon.

Have fun and Happy Spring!
