Busy Beginning of the Year, Brown Bear and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

This will be a class tour and what we've been doing the first few weeks.
Our Schoolgirl style trees and Welcome!

Writing!  Introduction to journals this week.

Our first day of school pictures under the class palm tree.




Just love our August quilt.  We have a square for the Brown Bear unit and one for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

Our color groups for guided reading!  We are on our way with small group instruction.

Books for guided reading.

We are all enjoying Readers Workshop.  The anchor charts are reviewed daily.

Here is the chart we worked on this week!

We had our first review of the letters and sounds we have learned the past two and a half weeks.
Have your child practice saying the letter, the sound and the picture.  You might post the chart in his/her room.

Today was Rainbow day!  We loved the hats and the kids enjoyed the M&M candy math color sort.

Mr. B came for a visit and took a picture for Spirit day with kids wearing ties and dressing like Mr.B.

We worked on an activity for retelling Brown Bear.

Carpet time and instruction.
Next week we will do more activities with the story Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.


  1. I love your room! The quilt is a great idea and is so cute too. I also like your Chicka Chicka Boom Boom bulletin board. Thanks for sharing your pics!

  2. I love the font you used for you "Reader Respect" (the title) anchor chart, may I ask what font it is?

  3. It was just bought to my attention by a blogger friend that my profile was set to no-reply. That is now fixed, so I figured I would post y question again now that you can actually reply to my question. I love the font you used for you "Reader Respect" (the title) anchor chart, may I ask what font it is? Thank you!

    1. Purchased Reader Workshop from Kim Adsit on TPT.

  4. I love the pictures you used for your letter review.. Do have a printable of them?
