Hi everyone! So the point of this blog was to document what I did everyday in my class....and well....that did not happen lol! The main reason I stopped is because even though we did the most coolest things in class, I forgot to take pictures so that I can share them. So I remembered today and wanted to share what we have done so far this week. We are learning about bats this week and each theme I try to get the children to learn one to three facts about our topic. This week we are focusing on the following:
- Bats eat fruit and insects
- Bats are nocturnal
- Bats like to live in dark places like caves

Yay! It's Friday! My little class is finally adjusting to our routine and getting over their fear of being away from mommy and daddy.
To continue with apple week, I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I know it's not really about apples, but the caterpillar does eat one ;) After the book, we did the Apple Roll poem, because the children really liked that one, and went outside to play.
When we came back in we played, Feed the Bird for our second rugtime. It was the first time I used "Flapper," so he went around and asked each child their name. Flapper even got my timid students to talk. After he went around the circle, he explained the game.

I wanted a felt story to go with this, but didn't want to make a trillion felt pieces so I came up with this.

I got the words and the bed pattern from Making Learning Fun and found the bear outline here.
Here are the words to this felt story. I changed them up just a little.

Wooohoooo! I'm off to Playa del Carmen! I have made some more felt stories and will post them when I return. Until then, I am taking a break from everything. Or I am going to try. It's hard not looking up fun things to do in class :)
I found this felt pizza in my classroom and forgot I had it. You could actually use it two ways.
One way I have used it is too reinforce the circle shape. I add each piece one by one by and ask the children what shape I am putting up. Then I ask them what topping they think it is. I love all the different answers I get.
The other way I use it is by putting it up in the classroom for freeplay. It's so fun watching them use their imagination when they play with it. I'm sure there are other ways you can use this one. Be creative.

Thank God I have such an awesome assistant who will be setting up the rest while I'm laying on the beach or swimming with dolphins! Actually, that's a little scary. I'd have to watch other people first before I try it.
Here are some pictures of my classroom in the final stages. I know it's not 100% done, but looks way better then when I started this blog.
