This has been a fun week. I found a lot of fun activities to work with many of the students at school who need to practice with number and letter identification.
1. This first activity is a combination of two things I found on Pinterest. I have a group of K4 students who do not know their numbers to 10. This was a good starting point to six. Cover that Number is from Mandi Moore and the pencil cards is from another activity from The Kindergarten Connection. I liked the pencil cards because they have nice big numbers on them.
I made these number squares to use with the children. We played bingo with them. I liked that the numbers are in order. The children were able to go back and count on when needed.
2. I made a word book for my grand-daughter. We are working hard on getting her to talk. The book contains photos of her things.
3. As I am growing older I find that I need a little bit of help to remind me and help me focus on the tasks I need to get done around the house. I am working on putting together a Life Organizer. It is a notebook with all the things I need to remember throughout the year.
4. The past two weeks I have been reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. It is a wonderful book about life of an Irish family around the 1915 in Brooklyn. It is a heart-warming story a young girl. I would give this book 4 stars.
5. I started name bags with the four year olds this week. I have been adding a new idea each day. The kids love the bags and I already see some improvement.
Thank you Kacey from Doodle Bugs for hosting Five for Friday.
