Brown Bear, Dr. Seuss' Birthday, and St. Patrick's Day--Oh My!

It has been a CRAZY two weeks!  Last week was Nevada Reading Week so our principal assigned each area of the school a book to focus on for the week.  Our book was Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See by Eric Carle.  We did soooooo many activities but this spinner graph was by far a favorite.  I got the idea from Donna Glynn on her TPT site.  I tweaked it just a little but the general idea was all hers!  Thanks Donna!

This is a St Patrick's Day center I created that we did today!  It wasn't the favorite of the day, that's coming up, but it was a close runner up.  I will try to post the activity sheets for this center this weekend.  In general, it's a counting book to practice number recognition and one on one correspondence.  They LOVE stamps so I knew this was bound to be a winner.  I will post more information on it soon.

I love when I see them checking their work!

Wow, this was a lot of stamps!!!

OK, so this center wasn't a favorite but it was so needed!  They loved it but I think they were surprised how difficult it can be to count in a circular pattern.  These are some counting wheels I created.  My Dr. Seuss-like wheels can be found in my TPT store by clicking here.  These pictured are my St. Patrick's Day Wheels which I hope to get up soon.

They always love the counting grids.  However, I'm not sure what they love more, the grid with different themed pictures each month or the themed counters I use each month.  These are some plastic St. Patrick's Day coins I found.

This is my Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss center. I call it a spinner graph.  It is similar to the Brown Bear spinner above.  Thank goodness my kids love to graph as much as I do!

 OK, so this was today's FAVORITE center!  I called it math writing around the room.  I only teach math and I have found I really miss doing some of my favorite reading and writing centers so I came up with this activity to incorporated one of my favorites, writing around the room.  Again, I will post the actual activity this weekend, fingers crossed.  But a way to combine writing and math??  I am a happy camper!!!  (and so were my kids!)
