Work in progress!

Ok, maybe I can be better about taking pictures at school now that my formal eval is over!

We're all over the place this week- we'll be starting some Thanksgiving fun next week so now we *might* be finishing up some Halloween stations that I didn't quite have time to do before Halloween (oops!)
We've been focusing on patterns in Math: They each had a little baggie of 12 candy corns and could choose to do the patterns we have learned so far (AB, AAB, ABB) as long as they could justify the type and label it. *Most* of my sweeties did really well- there are definitely a few that I need to reteach it to!

This is an awesome station activity all year- especially for intervention or for your kiddos who need a little extra support with letter recognition. You can't see very well in this picture, but that's a Halloween bucket- I found it at out grocery store for 75 cents for 2 right after Halloween! Score! Obviously, you could use any kind of a bucket (or stocking during Christmas!) but all the kids do is pull out a letter and find it on the paper. I got this printable from Little Miss Glamour Goes to Kindergarten- go snag one for yourself!
We're working on a super cute and FUN season wheel that I will have more pictures of this weekend when it's complete- we're doing a season a day, so it's taking us all week to complete!

p.s. Have you seen these adorable reminder signs from Lyndsey at A Year of Many Firsts?! I'm Loving the "wash your hands" reminder- the one in my room is definitely not as cute as Lyndsey's, and hers is free! Go snag them up from her blog!
