Summer Fun!

We apologize for our silence with the blog. We have been finishing the school year and enjoying our vacation time. We took some amazing trips and wanted to share with you why we have been so silent :).

Veronica took time with the family and headed to Florida. 

I (Katia) headed to New Zealand. My cousin (in the purple hat) and her boyfriend are living in New Zealand for a year so my brother and I decided we HAD to go visit. It was breathtaking and beautiful. 
In Auckland at the harbor. 
Bay of Islands: Hole in the Rock

Bay of Islands: Hanging out on an island
Paradise. I did NOT want to come back :) 

In other news we are SO excited to be apart of another Bilingual Blog. Be sure to check back to see all the great free Spanish resources. 

See you on the 4th!

Skip Counting by 2's

Today was a beautiful day and after having to keep the kiddos quiet for all day because of STAAR we were all ready to get outside. In Math we have been working on Skip Counting by 2's.

We used this number line from learning resources to practice jumping by 2's. Since it was the end of the day and testing was done we headed outside with some chalk. Outside we have lots of different colored squares. We counted by 2's and wrote them on squares with chalk. Then the kids practiced jumping by 2's all around. 


Here is a quick little video of one of my girls jumping by 2. Sorry for the poor iPhone quality. 

Hope you guys have a wonderful rest of the week!

Guess the Main Idea


Just wanted to share some of the Guess the Main Idea thinking maps that the students have worked on during stations during the last couple of weeks.  Students have not only loved creating them, they have also enjoyed visiting our main idea wall where they can see the webs created by other students and try to guess the main idea. Fun, fun, fun!
Here are a few of them!

Number Webs


Students have really enjoyed using Google docs to create  "number webs".  We have been working on making different combinations to represent a number.  For this math station, they select a  card from one of the number card buckets that we have in the classroom. Then, using Google docs they create a web, writing different combinations (addition or subtraction) that represent the chosen number.
Students have the choice of working at this station in partners or independently,  They also have the choice of which bucket to choose numbers from (1-10 bucket) (20-40 bucket) or 40+ bucket.  This gives them a change to work with numbers they feel more comfortable with or the opportunity to challenge themselves to work higher numbers.  Try it with your students, they will love it:)
