The students did well for the past nine weeks with the current centers, but a change was needed. Ms. Gros set up the following centers:
Play-Doh: Students spell words with Play-Doh
Puff Glue: First, the words are written in marker. Then, they are traced with puff glue.
Spin-a-word: Spelling words are written on a spinner. The students spin a paper clip and write the word that is landed on. This is done 20 times. Finally, the students create a bar graph of words spun.
We began learning about money last week.
One activity the students enjoyed was coin rubbing. I found this activity on Brain Pop Jr. The students showed amounts using coins and made an imprint by shading with colors.
We also received letters from our pen pals yesterday!
