I have been such a bad blogger... and honestly, I have no excuses other than laziness and being just plain overwhelmed. We have been testing with AIMSweb, which is similar to DIBELS but it has a math component. So, as I'm sure you know, that means pulling each individual to me & the computer for 8 tests. All the while trying to keep the other children quiet and engaged in SOMETHING. With first graders, it's truly like herding cats. But, with only one more day of testing, I think we just might survive!
That being said, I'm exhausted. How bad is it to go to bed at like 7:00?? I'm definitely a night owl, and typically stay up for the news, but tonight, I don't even think I'll make it to prime time :)
Anyway, just wanted to share how our 100th day celebration went.... We had so much fun & the all-day centers went off without a hitch!! Yay!
For the original post about these centers...and the links to the original sources for these ideas.. .click <HERE>.
Just a few things we did to show off how much smarter we are after 100 days!
We created structure using 100 cups:
The kids also had to write their numbers to 100...
completed our 100 day books...
made hats & glasses...
and did 100 exercises!!!
WOW! What a day!
I am so appreciative of all the teacher bloggers out there who came up with these great ideas so I could use them in my classroom. Being part of the blogging community is awesome & I just love it.
Anyway, that was it for the end of last week. Now, we are working on making mental pictures/visualizing and our fun weather unit. I can't wait to share it all with you, so I hope you'll stop by again soon!
