We Went to the Zoo! How About You?

These past few weeks we have been busy getting ready for the zoo! This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. The kiddos are always so excited to learn about all of the different animals and I love all of the cute projects and activities that are available to help get us ready. We created many of the animals from Julie Lee's Faces at the Zoo Unit. 

Check out these cute activities by clicking on the giraffe above! 

We have also been busy learning about measurement. The kiddos finished our unit on measurement by completing an adorable project from Kim Jordano's Jazzy Math Journal Pack. 

Each child painted their own unique flower and then measured the flower using an inchworm. The students art work definitely made a beautiful garden outside of the classroom! 

What have you been working on these past few weeks. We'll be moving on to a unit on geometry shortly and I will hopefully be posting more soon! 

Thanks a bunch

P.S. I will be posting a few new things in my TPT store shortly. Be on the lookout! :)

Write the Room

Hello Everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying a wonderful Sunday morning! I wanted to post about one of my new favorite activities in the classroom, write the room! However, I am not talking about write the room activities for Language Arts. I am talking about write the room activities for Math! When I saw how much my kiddos loved working on write the room activities during the Daily 5, I knew that I needed to incorporate it into my math stations. This month, we have been working hard on measurement and I decided to have the kiddos measure butterflies around the classroom. They did an awesome job! I am posting a few pictures of the activity here on my blog and will be posting the activity as a freebie in my TPT store.
I just adore the beautiful graphics by Krista Wallden!! If you have not already, you have got to check out her graphics!!

Do you do a math related write the room in your classroom? I would love to hear from you! Also, if you download this item from my store and could leave feedback, that would be fabulous!!!
Thanks a bunch!
