Weekly Wrap-Up -> Week 6

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada and I finally had a chance to post all about the fun activities we did last week!

Using loose parts, students were encouraged to build a letter in the picture frame.  I took pictures of each letter and will post them when the alphabet is complete!

I recently posted how we wrapped up our sorting unit in math.  I left these translucent buttons and sorting mats at the light table for students to use.  I have a whole bunch of button sorting mats that you can download for FREE by clicking on this posthttp://mrsalbanesesclass.blogspot.com/2017/10/why-we-love-our-light-tablefreebie.html

I tend to put this provocation out each year as it's a class favourite.  I kept the materials simple - cork, large Popsicle sticks and 5 pumpkins (I found these a few year back from Dollarama).
You can add all kinds of loose parts!  Use whatever you may have in your class to set up this fun and easy provocation just in time for Halloween.

I wish I had posted this last week so that you could have used it for Thanksgiving!  My apologies!  But you can always save it for next year (or use it if you live in the USA!).  The cards were so easy to make - print, fold and mount on construction paper.  Have students use their fingerprints to add fall leaves to the tree and write "Happy Thanksgiving" on the inside.
*I found this idea years back on Pinterest.  I don't know who the original creator is but if you do please let me know and I will be happy to give proper credit.*
