Then spent the week diving deep!

We made connections with the text and this will friend gave herself an A+!  HA!  Don’t mind if I do!

 And we did a little craft with our Giving Tree sentence study!

Some were more abstract than other!   Precious, just the same!

In stations, they worked hard, hard, hard!
I love the Black Ink Only activities because I don’t suck up my colored ink!

Here they are listening for the beginning sounds.

At this station, they are solving the silent e word puzzles.

This station is a math station where students are counting 10 frames.

Earth Day was the theme at the stamping station!  Students had a great time stamping recycling words.

We hung the “I Can” cards up!  There is one card for each of the options (4 are ELA and 2 are math).

Then the paper options were placed in this hanging paper organizer.  Since there are 6 different types of paper options for each month, it is worth it to stay a bit organized!   I have had this organizer forEVER… but you can find a similar one HERE.

 
 
This is how we spent our Earth Day in kindergarten.  We loved The Giving Tree!
