Week 8 Tt Uu Vv Ww and Pumpkins, Spiders, and Fall Fun!

Wow!  What a fun, fast week last week was!
Here are a few of the super books we read this week:
   
The letter Tt was a hit on Monday...

We played a bit of catch-up on Monday as we created our 
LEAF CREATURES...be looking for a great lucky duck book coming home soon....

SO cute!

Here is one of those squirrels from last week!
You know, the ones I forgot to photograph?
Kamryn brought hers back as part of her homework so I snapped a quick pic!

Centers on Tuesday were Fall Themed...
This pumpkin pie spiced playdough is DELIGHTFUL!
We stamped our names and other words.
Some kiddos worked on ABC order...awesome!

This station was beginning sounds leaves...


This station was leaf rhyming...


This station was numeral practice....


This station was our Ten Frames Book!
What fun using those great green dots!


We started new morning challenges on Monday....but I didn't get pics until Wednesday....

This one is missing number....


This is numeric order....


and finally here is abc order...


I wish I would have done a better job of taking pics of snacks...
this is our very nutritious Vv snack from Blake.
Thank you to everyone who has made this such a successful year for snack!  We will be signing up for just WEDNESDAY snacks at conferences....

We finger painted pumpkins!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE messy art!


They really are cute!

On Wednesday we earned a popcorn party for our ABC GAME!
I flash 25 of the 26 alphabet cards at the kids...quickly!
We say the name, the sound, and the visual phonics sign for the letter. The kids then have to tell me the missing letter.
They got 15 points so they chose a 
POPCORN PARTY!
We watched Zaboomafo (Kratt Brothers)
and drank juice and ate popcorn!




On Thursday we made these great water color witches and 
WASHED them away!


Don't you love the spooky look?

We just loved our Ww chart!
I brought watermelon to share....MMMMM!

We have some spooky fun around the room!
