"My Grandmother is taking me to ANTlanta in a few weeks."
As a girl is reading to me she reads, "Last week Jesus went to space in a spaceship." The word was Jessie, not Jesus. She never even stopped to question what she was reading!
This morning, I hear two children arguing about last night's BCS game (Roll Tide, by the way!). One is saying "the game was in New Orleans". The other is arguing, "no, the game was in the United States."
On to the calendar... At the beginning of the year, I posted about my calendar flip chart for the Promethean Board. I e-mailed many of you a copy of it. Well.. it "expired" in December. So, I thought it was probably time to post the second semester version for those of you who want it. This flip chart will only work with the Promethean Board! Please let me know if you would like me to e-mail you a copy. Promethean Planet is not cooperating and I can't get it to upload there. I'll try again.
Here are a few pictures of what it looks like.
|First page (I removed "today is, tomorrow will be...). Each month you can change the calendar by: Retyping the name of the month and deleting the image of the January calendar. The images for February-May are stacked behind January.|
|Each song title is linked to a page with an audio file of that song and the lyrics|
|A page to practice place value, odd/even and greater than/less than. I like to write addition or subtraction sentences or initials for coins (Q, D, N, P) on the Greater than/less than part to make it more of a challenge.|
|A place to practice money. I've removed the coin poems (hopefully by now everyone knows the coin names and values). I added the bills-- oooh, aaah!|
