Addition: One of the activities we did was from Oceans of First Grade Fun- Corn and Tomato Soup. I saw this last year on Yolanda's blog and had to try it! The kids really had fun making their "soup." I created a little Smartboard activity to demonstrate making the soup.

In reading this week we did Tanny McGregor's reading salad lesson and made this anchor chart. I hesitate to post any of my anchor charts after some of the fabulous ones I have seen on other blogs! But I am NOT and artist, and usually just do the chart with the kids, so this is what I get! Even the kids laughed at my head this time!
I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of our apple graph. First we made a real graph using our apples and sorting by color. Then we collected the data using tally marks and then they colored their graphs and answered some questions about the data. I have a couple more apple activities planned so I will try to get some pictures!
Unrelated note: I just recently got my first smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S3) and I don't know how I lived without it! It makes adding pictures to my blog so much easier, I can send texts by talking, and I just discovered yesterday I can scan documents with it and send them to myself or others. All this and Angry Birds, too!
