100th Day and a Sale

Thursday, January 31, 2013 No comments
We celebrated the 100th day of school on Wednesday.  We didn't spend the whole day celebrating, but threw in a few activities throughout the day.  One of my coworkers informed us that we only have 78 more days of school and 14 more Mondays.  This school year is going fast.

Here is one of my sweeties on the 100th day of school:

Ahoy Maties!
This week we learned the /ar/ sound and I can't teach /ar/ without throwing in a few pirate activities.

My students absolutely loved this part, part, whole activity:

This activity can be found in Erica Bohrer's packet "Pirate Math Centers"  which is totally worth purchasing.  My students loved every activity in her unit.  

My coworkers and I dressed up in our pirate get up.  (This is actually last year's picture.  We forgot to take one this year.)

You can grab the pattern for the iron on and the directions to make this shirt on Abby Mullin's blog, The Inspired Apple.

We made this little guy/gal at the Art Center:

Doing a few fun pirate activities this week sure made coming back from Christmas break a little easier!
