In other news, we made these ornaments with our kiddos. All you need are glass bulbs and acrylic paint. You simply squirt a little paint into the bulb and let the kids swirl it around. If you put the cap back onto the bulb, they can gently shake the paint around to coat the entire surface. They are stinkin' adorable!
My teamie and I are also in the middle of making these ginormous snowflakes with our thirdsters. They are soooo cute, but we are sooooo not done with them yet. We are trying to fit them in around our assessments, instruction and intervention periods. Slowly, but surely. For a tutorial, click HERE!
We are currently starting Unit 3 in Reading Street, and our spelling focus is on contractions. This skill is ALWAYS on the OAA, so I really want to make sure my kiddos have a solid understanding of them. We did a fun introductory activity today since we had our Christmas program practice and dress rehearsal today. I only had 40 minute blocks to work with, and I knew I had to make it fun and meaningful to get anything out of the time I had. :) So, I tore a page from Abby's book and switched it up a bit. Since it's December, we made contraction gingerbread men and women. They are darling! You can get her adorable template HERE!
