Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter! We've been doing Easter work stations in our classroom.  This one involves rolling a number cube and doubling the number you get, then adding one.  Then you have to stamp that number on your large bunny to see who fills up their bunny first.  We call it "Doubles Plus One". 
This station's goal is to practice high frequency words. One person pulls a card out of the container and says the word.  Both players have to use fly swatters to find the bug that the word is written on and try to smack that bug first.  It's really fun!
Last week, we made Holy Week books.  I hope your child brought his or hers home and displayed it proudly! Each day of Holy Week, we discussed that day's events by reading from the Bible and reading picture books. Then we made a page in our book with a picture and a Bible verse. Here's a few pictures:

Here we are painting for the Easter Sunday page...

We also made these math butterflies on Thursday. Each student got to pick a little slip of paper out of a bucket. That slip contained an amount of money that they wrote in the center of their butterfly.  Then, each student came up with four ways to make that amount and wrote them on the four wings. 

We didn't have a spelling test last week, but we will have one this week.  We're focusing on the long i sound, spelled y, ie, and igh.
