Colorful Cats and Chicka Chicka Fun Freebies!

Oh my goodness y'all!  It has been so long since I did a blog post.  When I signed in I got an error saying I wasn't recognized.  Okay, well not really but it has been awhile.  Shoowee!  Do y'all think parents know how hard we work at the beginning of the year?  Usually a Sonic coke provides a pick me up but even that hasn't helped.  My get up and go, got up and left!!!   The good news is that we all get through it and by October we are usually well into our routines and feeling fine.  How many more days until October?  :)

Alright, so here are some pics of things we've been doing.

Colorful Cats Glyphs...

Our Colorful Cats Data Analysis sheets...

Rainbow Milk Science Experiment

GRRRR!  I couldn't for the life of me get the picture to quit turning sideways!  Blogger needs to get a rotate button.  SERIOUSLY!  
This is one of the emergent readers we did.  The kids circled the color word and highlighted the capital at the beginning of the sentence at the punctuation.

We used Skittles to do some fun (and yummy) 10 frame math!

The activities above are just a small sampling of my Colorful Cats unit.  You can click on the cover below to check it out if you are interested.  

I love the poem, Rainbow Hair.

  17. Deanna- I bought your Colorful Cats unit and LOVE it!! I tried the rainbow milk science experiment with my kids at school and I didn't really see a reaction when the Q-tip with detergent was dipped in. Hmmmm any idea where I might have gone wrong?

  18. I just found that Chicka Chicka Boom Boom you tube video, too! My kiddos told me to "Google" it! Love your know how I feel about cats :)

  19. As a middle/high school Math teacher I just love seeing ten frames used with coloured food/ items because this is an awesome lead into probability/ chance/ fractions!
    The data analysis and graphing was so beautifully presented and I can imagine how much your students love your class activities!
    Truely motivating!
