We made a human clock on our classroom floor. We simply made a chalk circle on the carpet (it wears off in a few minutes) and the kids took turns being the hands and the minutes. I think they are starting to get it.
Tomorrow we are going to start using Amy Lemons' amazing time unit - check it out at http://stepintosecondgrade.blogspot.com/. I will let you know how it is coming along.
We also started working on our dictionary skills today. We received an amazing Donors Choose grant last year for a set of dictionaries. They are so much better than what we had for the primary grades at our school. They actually have most of their vocabulary words inside (imagine that!).
I made up a little set of worksheets to go with it that I put up as a freebie on TpT. Go pick it up if you could use one. It is very simple, nothing fancy, but something already made, so that is something, right? Just click the picture below!
I hope you had an excellent day...
