Is Monday ever really any other way? No matter how much I do on the weekend to "feel" prepared, something undoubtedly pops up and throws my AM hours into a tailspin. Today was no different. While the event that stirred up my day was personal (needed to go to building dept to get permit to do my roof), it was one of those things that got my happy morning routine in a tizzy! The kids don't seem to mind - but I definitely feel flustered and like I need to catch up all day.
Enough about my crazy Monday morning. On to school stuff. One of the new things I have started doing in class with my prek kids is a daily morning message. We read the message I wrote (before they came in that morning) and there is usually some task to complete. For example today was missing numbers. I had a 3 number sequence and one of the numbers was missing - the kids had to figure
out the missing number and we talked about how to correctly write the number ( thirteen is a 1 and a 3). I have a number line near the easel the kids could use to check their thoughts. They did great!!!
