I’m here to show you what we were up to LAST WEEK!
I know, I know… I’m a little late in the game but we had so much fun with our bus safety theme that I decided to show you what we did even though I’m showing you a week late! HA!
If you follow me on Facebook, you got a little peak at the fun stuff already!
First, we started our week with my easy reader. I read it on my iPad so I am now the COOLEST teacher ever! Hehehe!
Have you ever read a book to your class on an iPad before? It’s amazing what a little change can do ;)
After reading the story to the class, I showed my kiddos that they were going to get their VERY OWN BOOK! How amazing is that?? They were so excited, it looked like it was Halloween in my class! To be honest, I was a little shocked with the level of enthusiasm! Take it when you get it, right? ;)
My students worked on their books by completing the sentence on the last page and coloring the pictures to make it their own. They were very proud of their bus books :)
We also worked on a class survey and asked our friends how they get home from school. They LOVED this activity because they got to choose which friends they would ask the questions too. They especially loved that they got the opportunity to get out of their seats! Yay!!
My AMAZING student teacher worked on a bubble map with the class. They discussed describing words and came up with words to describe a bus. The best part was when the buses arrived AS we were working on this activity! What perfect timing!!
The last thing we did was a craft. Each child got to make their very own school bus! We all attached some pages to our craft to make our beautiful bus books. The blank spaces were a great way to review the bus safety rules that we learned at the beginning of the week. What a fun way to wrap up our bus safety theme!
In a couple of weeks, we will have a bus driver visit us to show us how to get on and off the bus safely. The kids don’t know yet… It will be a fun surprise!
I’ll be back this weekend to show you what we did THIS WEEK!
You can find all the activities seen above (and more) in my Bus Safety pack!
I'll be leaving it on SALE for the next 24 hours :)
