Hey everyone! Sorry its been awhile since I posted. I've had a lot going on this past week and just hadn't taken the time to sit down and write. I can hardly believe that tomorrow is going to be Halloween! Ugh! This year has flown by so fast.
Since the last post that I wrote was from the hospital, I thought I would start with an update. She has now woken from the medical-induced coma that she was in and they have decreased the amount of oxygen they have her on from 61% to 35%! I am so happy and relieved that she is doing much better! Thank you all for the prayers and the well wishes!
On an educational note, tomorrow is Halloween! I don't know about your school... but we are not allowed to celebrate "Halloween." So instead we allow students to dress up as their favorite storybook character (as long as they have the book with them) and we do pumpkin and other fall related activities.
I have to admit that I have not been a GREAT kindergarten teacher this year. We have not explored the pumpkin like we should have. We have talked about the pumpkin and it's life cycle, we have sorted pumpkins by size, and done other activities. But there are a ton of other activities that I wish I had of had time for. I'm kinda sad we didn't get to estimate/measure the pumpkin, do pumpkin glyphs, and a few other pumpkin activities.... but it's okay. I'll take a deep breath and know that many my students are WRITING (several are even writing several sentences at a time), most of my students know all of their popcorn words, and all but 3 student know all of their letters.
Anyways... because we have been working hard at those academic skills, I have tried to tie in as many seasonal activities into centers as I can I have one more freebie for you! If you are a Dibels teacher than you have been working on FSF skills and this freebie is all about those first sounds!
If you download, please leave a some love and let me know what you think!
UPDATE: The link is now working! I am so sorry that it was not available before! But I found the glitch and you will be able to view the freebie now without having to request permission to view!
In case I don't make it on here tomorrow, HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
P.S. I have put my Boo! Common Core Math Packet on sale for 50% off! So until tomorrow night you can get it for just $3.00.
