a very sad sight........
Yep.....sad! Test time starts next week with the state writing assessment so I wanted to get the desks set so it didn't throw my kiddos. I
HATE dislike the classroom like this!!! There's no room, I feel like my kids in the back are a block away!! Next week it will be even sadder because all the posters and anchor charts and anything cute will be down:((((( WAAAAA! But as soon as they collect my tests and we get the all clear I'm putting these desks back to groups and we are going Seuss CRAZY!! So it will be happy after it's sad!!
I posted a new activity for Math on my Teachers Notebook store. It's called Decimal Times (I'm not very creative with the naming of things.......sorry) Anywho, it has 4 sets (8 tasks per set) of color coded task cards - 2 sets for multiplication and 2 sets for decimals. I'm going to use them in Math centers tomorrow.
If you want to give them a peek, click HERE at Decimal Times.
I also wanted to share a last minute, pull it out of nowhere, quickie activity. I was doing a mini lesson on Cause Effect yesterday during Daily 5. We used an adorable activity Cause Effect Treasure from the lovely Mary at Pitner's Potpourri. Love her stuff. After we finished the little pirate lessonI gave each of the kids half of a sentence strip, they folded it in half, wrote cause on one side, effect on the other. Then the peeps had to come up with 2 sentences, one cause, one effect....write the sentences and then illustrate......hence the repurposed sentence strips.....well, they weren't really repurposed because they weren't used before but they had been sitting in my cabinets for a looooong time AND they weren't being used for sentences.....well, they were but.......oh, you get the idea!
These are hard to read...the first one says:
The man was in the rain. He got soaking wet when he got home.
The second one says:
It was thundering out. I put my kite away.
The pics on these 2 crack me up.....both people face planted....love my kiddos art work:D
