Learning Activities
Sunny Sums
Math - Addition
Here is the link to this addition activity
Scooping Up Sums
Math - addition
I modified this activity a little bit.  I had Connor come up with sums on his own.  The original activity has great visuals with sums and addition sentences.  Here is the link to this addition activity.
Flip Flop Fragments
Language Arts/Writing - sentences, fragments
Here is the link to this learning activity
Firefly Word Work
Literacy - short vowel sounds a and e, sorting
I modified this activity by gluing the HEN and CAT jar to a piece of 8x11 piece of construction paper.  I cut out each firefly, and Addie sorted them appropriately by gluing each firefly to it's matching jar.  This activity would be perfect as a center activity, but I decided to make it more permanent, since Addie was the only one doing it.
Here is the link to this wonderful activity.
