Presidents' Day Fun and Officer 'ED'

Hello, friends!

We've had such a great and busy week and we've only been in school for 2 days.  My students had a blast learning about the presidents.  Check out our pictures below.

Roll and much fun!

What would you cook the president for dinner? Such CUTE answers! Spaghetti, hamburgers, and beef sausage pizza on the menu in my class. 

Next up, my kiddos met Officer Ed.  Officer Ed taught them about the different sounds that "ed" makes.  I called words with the suffix "ed" word criminals because they try to trick us with their ending sounds. On Tuesday they walked around the room and found the "ed" words and wrote them in the right category on their recording sheet. Then we came back together and placed all the words on our white board.  They had tons of fun!

This little boy made my day.  He covered up the ed and was trying all the sounds.  Such a happy teacher moment!

Here's our completed sort!

Today, we played Officer High Five.  They each received a "badge" and had to write down an "ed" word.  Then they gave a high five to a "police officer".  They had to read each other's words and then switch badges.  My kiddos love the high five and switch game.
