Time, Time, Time... Always need more of it! :)

This week has been busy! Didn't get around to taking too many pics, but here are a few.

Began our TIME unit. The grade one's need to learn time to the hour and half hour and the two's to the quarter hour. I thought that this may be a lot more challenging for them, as their world is completely digital. But they did awesome..... So far! :)

Below is the clock in my room. I often refer to it throughout the day and made these time minute circles to add to the clock to make it a little easier. You can find some free minute cards {here}.

Pulled out a hulla hoop from the gym and did a lot of one-to-one and whole group practice with the kiddos this week on the carpet.

Got to assess a little more too while the students worked on "Parts of the Day" time activity. Each student was given a part of the day. We discussed our daily routine and what time subjects and activities begin at each day. The student each drew a picture to coincide with their "part of the day." Got this cute idea from Mrs. Lemons!

Next week....

  • Beginning a Social Studies unit on Mapping! 
       Any fun ideas out there?

Have a terrific weekend :)
