Happy Monday Friends!
I am not sure how the weekend got away from me so quickly....
It seems like a blur! I took a ton of pics from last week so I am excited to share our new learning with you!
In Math, I am supplementing our GO MATH series with some great measurement materials from Reagan Tunstall's units:
The kiddos are having a blast using all types of Non-Standard units to measure objects around the room. I followed Regan's recent post and made a "fish pond" out of butcher paper and Scholastic Clip Art images!There was ALL kinds of great Math learning happening at the pond last week! I loved listening to the "math talk" and hearing how kids were proving their point of measure!
Everything that wasn't nailed down was measured!!!
These two won the BEST DRESSED award!
And this cutie-pie brought in painting caddies for all of us!
And my gift was totally awesome!How cute is this poem!!!
Then we got busy making some Leprechaun LOOT!
We started with a TON of supplies.....We mixed, and stirred, and then POOF!
The Leprechaun Loot was ready!
Looks DELICIOUS doesn't it!
Of course we had to tie in some math so we sorted it, graphed it,
recorded our data using tally marks......And then we got to eat it!!! YUM! YUM!
That sly little green guy left us a scavenger hunt around the room!
He left us this basket-
We opened it up and found new pencils and sticker sheets for everyone! HOORAY!!!

We were feeling pretty inspired at that point so we decided to put our good energies to work and create a cool tribute to our favorite little green guy!
Picassos' in the making!
And just today I found a NEW Directed Drawing for Bunnies on Jen's Blog! Boy, do I LOVE that girl!!!
Have a wonderful week!
