A Brief Peek At Colby's Week!

Sooo . . . I'm pretty late on the blog post!  It's been one of those weeks, for some reason.  We were so busy that I didn't get as many pictures as I usually do; there were some great activities that went undocumented.  Oh, well.  Here's the stuff I managed to snap!

The farm activities continue! This is the Tier 1a portion of Marsha McGuire's Farm Numbers Differentiated Write the Room.  Colby loves these activities, and I love that they are tiered because I get so much use out of them!  We'll be doing some of the more challenging stuff very soon.

More activities from The Printable Princess's autumn-themed packet, "Rakin' in the Learning"!  I've said it before and I'll say it again - This is a great product.  I'm so happy with this purchase.  In the above picture, you can get a look at a few of the cards from the "Bear-y Good Beginning Sounds" activity.

Here's the recording sheet.  Colby writes the number on the card in the box, and the letter with the correct beginning sound in the circle.  


Another activity from "Rakin' in the Learning"!  The student looks at each card . . .

sorts and counts the autumn objects . . .

then write down how many of each on this recording sheet.  Didn't my little nugget do a great job?  He had a lot of fun, too!  (To see more activities from "Rakin' in the Learning", visit this post, this one, and this one.)

Here's Colban working on the second farm animal graphing activity from the FREE set by Teaching With Nancy.  We love these activities!

(The data sheet shown here is printed off half-sized to save ink - the original size is 8.5" x 11".)  To see Colban completing the first activity from this set, click here.  To see the third part, stay tuned!

Another write-the-room from Marsha McGuire!  This time it's adorable Thanksgiving-themed ten frames from Thanks For Ten Frames Write The Room Fun.  The 1-10 cards are shown here, with one of the corresponding recording sheets.  We will be using the 11-20 activities in the very near future!

Colby likes to practice filling ten frames independently with his magnetic bingo chips; this month we've been using these fabulous farm-themed ten- and twenty-frame mats from Teaching With Nancy's Farm Unit Mega Pack.

Here's a closer look!  (I should've turned off the flash . . .)  Aren't they cute?

Check out this excellent rhyming activity!  It's also from the Farm Unit Mega Pack.

Here's a closer look at a few of the clip cards.  (I also printed these off half-sized.)

Colby looks at the picture the cow is holding up, then chooses the rhyming object from among the other three.

He then circles the corresponding farm animal on the recording sheet!  There are two sets of cards, and two recording sheets.  We'll be doing the other set next week!
