We had a great day today. Got so much done with my little firsties. I had 5 absent so that may have helped me get through things a little faster. We started our measurement unit this week in math. I made Pete the Penguin to help us practice measuring and the kiddos loved it. We have read a lot about penguins lately so when I brought Pete out and told them that this was how big a real boy Emperor Penguin is, they all about flipped. We've been measuring with cubes, tiles, and paper clips. So, of course we had to measure Pete. Then we each stood next to Pete to see if we were taller than him so we could do our graph. I snapped a few pictures.
Here is the graph I made to go along with it. Click on the picture to grab a copy.
Well, the next 2 days are going to be VERY, VERY long. We have Parent Conferences. One nice perk is the food we get. Our PTA does a dinner for us one night and it is fantastic. Then our secretary does a dinner for us the next night and it is always really good.
Oh, and I really am losing my mind. In my last post I had a vowel worksheet and I didn't realize it but I had already shared that one. So it is on my blog twice. I guess I really need to read my own blog or try to remember what I've already shared. Sorry!
I hope everyone has a great rest of the week.
