We had a great day yesterday - but it was definitely exhausting!
We started the day reading the Cat in the Hat and doing a fun color by letter from Living Live Intentionally :
We read Green Eggs and Ham and learned what a recipe is. The kiddos were super excited to make green eggs and ham - and seriously thought it was the best recipe ever...um okay...haha!
We went to lunch (which was amazing to my kids - because they were in awe that they got 2 lunches that day - Green Eggs and Ham and regular school lunch haha).
We did a fun real/nonsense word sort from Kindergarten Lifestyle:
In the afternoon we read One Fish, Two Fish, made aquariums and had a fun snack:
Followed up by a reading of Fox in Socks and playing a hilarious game. The kids took off one shoe (this in itself was super funny to them...love my kiddos!) and then got ready to play. Each student had 30 seconds to put on as many socks as they could. We had a mix of socks ready in a pile at the carpet.
After the timer went off, we graphed how many socks they were able to get on their foot! Check out my previous post for the graph headers if you want to grab them for next year!
We calmed (tried to anyways!) down by playing a fun roll and cover game from Mrs. Lirette's Learning Detectives.
Finished the day out with a real and pretend animal sort from Living Life Intentionally:
The other for real fun part of the day was our door decorating contest. And I am serious when I said the competition.was.fierce. I am lucky to work with such a great group of talented teachers. The kids loved the doors and it made for great conversations throughout the day!
Here's a peek at the doors:
2nd Grade Team:
