Ten Frames & Alphabet Fun!

Happy Saturday!

Two weeks of school have FLOWN by!  (I guess it helps with a 4-day week last week!)  But looking ahead, I can't believe we are about to begin our 3rd week of school!

I have a great group of firsties this year and we have been having so much fun!  In the past two weeks, we have been working so hard on our alphabet and numbers!  (I love the first week or two because you can really see who is struggling or who is mastering these skills!)  Most of this should have been a review for most of the kiddos....but we all know our kids are on ALL different levels!

We dove right into numbers and ten frames and they *loved* it!!


I made these ten frames with duct tape and the foam circles came from good ole' Wal Mart!  :)
We worked on numbers up to 20 and they so good!


They also got into groups and put their numbers 1-20 in order!  (we may have even had a few races!)

We also used our cubes to fill in our individual ten frames!


The alphabet is one of my favorite units at the beginning of the year....we don't spend too much time on it, but when we do, we have lots of fun!  We started with putting our letters into order....

(again...there may have been some racing going on!)  They get into it!!


This was an individual activity!

Then we focused on our capital letters and lowercase letters.....  

We sorted them as a class and then in small groups!  

Each group presented their charts to the class!

They did a great job!!

Whew.... although we had a *great* time.... I am beat at the end of the week!  

Next we start rhyming....which is another favorite!!

Have a great week :)
