Today's activities are mostly themed around The Cat in the Hat. I did have to throw a tie in though since it was "Wear a tie or scarf" to school day in honor of Hop on Pop.
We created word family ties to go with Hop on Pop. I found a tie clipart and they decorated them however they liked using our words of the week (ay & ai). Some students had striped ties, while others had crazy colorful ties. All students had words on their ties. :)
We created a fraction hat to go with our study of shapes and fractions. They used 1 inch (you could even do 2 inch) strips to create a patterned hat. Then, they filled in the fraction for each color and how many total parts were on their hat.
I managed to fit two crafts into today and still taught everything else I planned to teach! How exciting!

Tomorrow is pajama day! As one little boy said: "We get to wear pajamas to SCHOOL!"
