We had a blast with my son and daughter-in-law and family. I had some pretty BAD hair days but really enjoyed the water, boating, eating, and down time. I didn't enjoy the heat and 2 scary wind storms. But we had lots of adventures and made lots of memories!
A kiva is a special gathering place the Indians built. They climbed down into it and it was a place where they were given special instructions and learned many things. Then I tell them that we have a special place in our classroom where we will learn great things too and we are going to call it 'Our Kiva'. We talk about the rules and if any one doesn't obey the rules then they are asked to leave the kiva. My firsties think it is WAAAAY cool!
I also got all my Long and Short Vowel packets finished and uploaded to my shops. I have individual packets or I made a MEGA PACK which has all 5 vowels at a discounted price. Each vowel has 11 activities including games, sorts, worksheets, and picture cards. It takes about 2 weeks to do each vowel. I had fun making it. Here are a few pictures from the packets.
Have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
