What happens when you go two weeks without getting a blog post up? You end up sharing a whole lot in one post. But the upside to that is there a lots of pictures & even a freebie along the way! So. Let’s catch up!!
We started learning about contractions this week. Like many of you, Halloween week for us is also Red Ribbon week. I knew we were going to be having lots of conversations about how we DON’T do drugs and why we WON’T do drugs! So it seemed like a great time to start focusing on apostrophes and contractions.
I printed the words on different colored paper strips then each kiddo pulled a strip without seeing the words. Once they got their words they had to create the contraction and use it in a sentence.
I finally got this bulletin board up the LAST week of October. Does anyone else feel like they deserve an Olympic medal of honor every time they change a bulletin board!? Like it’s this big huge accomplishment. Even if it’s only seasonably relevant for oh, I don’t know, a week.
I do this activity every year for Halloween and each year I do it a little differently. Sometimes I do most of the activities in my Witches Brew Mini Unit before Halloween day. Other times I save most of it for the day of Halloween and after. This year was on of those years. Our principal wanted us to have some educational activities during the Halloween parties, not all games. So I actually saved the witches brew mini readers to read DURING the party.
