Here is the Three Little Pigs houses on a milk carton and finger puppets so that they could retell the story.  We are reading it on FOUR different levels, which is challenging, but they are loving it and having so much fun retelling it!  I'm happy with how it turned out (with the exception of all the spaghetti all over the floor) and can't wait to do it again next year!

We also read Goldilocks on Tabtales on the iPad and did the "Breaking News" activity that I wanted to do.  Tomorrow is the choice of Princess and the Pea activity or Cinderella activity.  Always good to give choices!  For math we will do the Jack and the Beanstalk activity that I created, in pairs.  Such a busy, busy week!

On another note, I have a group who is having a really hard time with ABC order.  I put fewer words for them on post-it notes and a list with the ABC's for them to highlight after finding the first letter in each word.  It actually worked out beautifully!

This week I will be using tons of activities that I found on Pinterest (so addicted) to teach Fairy Tales.  I made an activity of my own and put on TpT for Jack and the Beanstalk so check it out if you'd like to get it for FREE!  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Jack-and-the-Beanstalk-Math



We will be reading three different levels of The Three Little Pigs and doing fun activities with that story, but here are some of the other awesome things we will be doing as well!











I will post pictures next weekend to show how it all turns out!!  Can't wait - it's gonna be such a FUN week!






So excited to start this blog!  Hope that it will help me get out some of my creative energies without obsessing so much about all I want to do all the time.  Thanks for following me!
