Ms.Michelle's star and moon addition...


Mrs.Benke's Beginning Sounds...


Mrs. Gnadt's Alphabet Dice Game...


And Ms. Joni's Robot 10 Frames...

Wow~ that's a lot of helpers!
I was lucky that day as Ms.Michelle needed more observation time from WSU, Mrs. Benke came early, Mrs. Gnadt's student was working with us, and Ms. Joni just got assigned to help at centers!
We will NORMALLY have 2 other adults...but what fun that day!
I just walked around, visiting with each team, supervising!


We played in shaving cream on Tuesday to get the table all nice and shiny for conferences!




On Wednesday we played an outer space vocabulary matching game!


Mrs. Flathers arrives at 2:30 everyday to play with the kids and help a few finish work and get ready to go home.

The Turkey Family Projects are adorable!
If you haven't sent yours, it is not too late!

AT family and AN family word sort...

We celebrated with these lovely 50 dot paintings.
We discovered there was 5 sets of 10!






Thursday's centers also celebrated NUMBERS on our 50th day!
This team painted with QTips...


At this station we played I SPY...



Ms. Joni helped with the Super Sized Spiralgraph in honor of Ss week!



And even though you cannot see this well, it was super fun and called LOTTY DOTTY!
 We used fat crayons to discover the hidden number written in transparent glue!


Earlier this week Ms. Sierra, our field experience student from WSU, helped the kids put together another data glyph.
This one is about our homes...
