Well, I have to say this week FLEW by! We did NOT get most of the week off because of snow, like many of you. However, we did have Monday off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so our week was short. I tried to pack my week with activities, and of course, I didn't get to all of it! Story of my life, my friends. But here are the highlights:
Today, my kiddos were working on a very difficult lesson in our math series. They had to use logical reasoning to solve math problems. As most of you know, seven year olds don't have the best sense of logic, so this is a tough topic. However, I was so proud of my kids today. They partnered up and there was great discussion and team work happening in my classroom. Most of them worked through the activities beautifully.

I just finished up a set of Parts of Speech task cards to use with my class. They never seem to get enough practice with it. I created this for quick and easy review in my classroom. I love the versatility it provides my students. It can be used independently, at centers, small groups or even as a whole group review. It covers nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and proper nouns. I also created anchor charts to "refresh" my kiddos memories of each of the parts of speech. There are five sets of task cards with multiple choice and free response answers. And...this packet is on sale through this weekend!
