Wicked Word Work!!!

It's Sunday night...I should totally be in bed.  Unfortunately, I'm not.  I spent a lot of time being a mommy this weekend so now it's time to get caught up!  We had a family wedding we went to Saturday night.  So much fun!  

My girls LOVE to dance so keeping them entertained until the music part of the evening was...interesting.  :)  Seriously.  She moved ALL night!

My Madi is starting to really notice more and ask more in different situations.  This is the second wedding we've been too in the past few months and she's becoming really interested in this whole 'getting married' thing.  During the Father/Daughter dance, she asked what was going on.  I explained, "Well, when a girl gets married, usually, she dances to a special song with her daddy."  "Why?" she asked.  "Because sometimes it's a little sad for a daddy to see his daughter get married."  She looked at me with these big, innocent eyes and said, "Awww!  That's the sweetest thing I ever heard!"  Crack.  Me.  Up.  

Since I'm playing catch up, I am finally linking up for a Peek at My Week! 

Here are my plans!  Just click on the pictures below to be taken to my plans!  You can then click on any of the pictures to go to the product!  

This week we will be getting back to work (last week was sooooo busy with all of our wonderful community helpers visits).  We will be focusing on Halloween and sight words - we will learn them!

Last week was busy (I can't say that enough).  One thing we introduced was labeling!  We practice, first, by labeling ME! 

Then we labeled our big pumpkin!

We will get a chance to carve our big pumpkin this week for our party so we will be labeling the inside of it this week as well.  

Last week, we also wrote words in shaving cream....

had visits from the firemen, a doctor, the mayor, policemen, a postal worker, and a bus safety presentation (whew!)

practiced reading and playing sight word games with our witch fingers....

made pumpkin applesauce muffins (YUM!)....

and....oh yeah...watched our principal and assistant principal get pies thrown in their face for United Way! 

All in a week's work right?!

My kids are super excited for the holiday, so I thought I would make learning super fun for them this week.  We will be using my new Halloween them word work product to keep things interesting!  Here's a peek at what's inside!

Monster Letter Dab - Students will draw a letter and find in on their paper.  There are options for students to match UPPERCASE to UPPERCASE, lowercase to lowercase and UPPERCASE to lowercase.

(Horrible picture!)  

Missing Letter Spider Webs - Students will fill in the missing letter.

Beginning Sounds Potions - Students will identify the beginning sound of the pictures on the potions and find the cauldron that matches.

Sweet Vowels - Students will use magnetic letters to fill in the missing vowel.

Whooooo Knows the Ending Sound - Students will use a clothespin (or button!) to mark the ending sound of a word.

Sight Words in Disguise - Students will lay out the pumpkin cards.  They then draw a ghost card and try to match the 'disguised' sight word with the correct one.

Batty CVC Puzzles - Students will match the CVC word and picture.

Spooky Mixed Up Sentences - Students will find the cards with matching pictures and put them in order to create a sentence.

Haunted Word Family Sliders - Students will slide the beginning letter up and down reading the word and finding the matching picture.

Halloween Emergent Reader Flip Book - Students will assemble and read this cute Halloween themed flip book!  (Three books to choose from!)

If you would like to grab this set, just click on the picture below!  It's 50% until Monday at lunch!!! 

I will hopefully be back later this week to fill you in on what we are doing in my classroom to reinforce phonemic awareness - and it takes hardly any time or prep!  Can't wait to share with y'all!    

Have a happy Halloween week!
