Thanksgiving, adding tens, and Cracker Jacks!

It was another 4 day week last week (I swear, it's so hard to get it all done in 4 days!) and we were movin' and groovin' all day, every day!

Here's a little bit of what we were doing.... You saw my post earlier in the week about our Thanksgiving centers that we had started.

Adding tens centers....

Turkey Time math centers (check out the post about how we used my Turkey Time literacy centers)

We've been busy learning about words that have a final /k/ and /ch/ sounds....

One of my favorite things we did last week is a writing activity from my Charlotte's Web pack. I bought some Cracker Jacks and we did some sensory writing....can you believe that EVERY year most of my kids have NEVER had Cracker Jacks?? It's one of those nostalgic things from my childhood that I REFUSE to let die with the

and of course I get all excited whenever I see the prize!

we looked....

we smelled...

we did all the senses and the wrote it all out in a paragraph!

AND we did our FINAL pumpkin plant observations.....only about 1/2 of our plants grew. Mine did NOT grow, thank GOODNESS....I think that made the kids whose plant didn't grow feel

If you want to check out any of the packs I mentioned, here they are

Hi Jessica! I have no idea where that pocket chart came from! It was the teacher's who was in that room before me and she left it there :)
