I didn't underline all of the "ay" sounds. One is not underlined. If your child can find the "ay" that I didn't underline, and he or she (with your help) is the first to leave a comment saying where my underlining of "ay" is missing, he or she will get to play the drums Monday morning at music......
Here's the photo of the news:
You may wonder what "tray math" is.
It's a game—with many variations—that employs observation, probability, and counting skills. We introduced a couple of variations today. Here's one way to play "tray math:"
|Put a number blocks of two colors on a tray.|
|Cover the blocks so they cannot be seen.|
|Without looking, remove one block and hide it.|
|Remove cover. Figure out what color block is missing.|
|Yep. Now, explain how you knew.|
We did many other activities, of course. The morning, the week, flew by.
We went out for PE and got some practice with basketballs.
And came back to class for some Monster Squeeze and dancing and plan-do-and-review time.
Have a great weekend.
P.S. I'll be doing report card assessments on Monday and Tuesday and the student teachers, Miss Roach in particular, will be "taking over." I have every confidence in her that it will go well.
P.S. Stay tuned over the weekend for a post about how to keep balance in your life so that you're still loving your work thirty-some years into your career. This is a plan, not a promise.
