Name Writing and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

I'm not sure how all you bloggers do it! I've been too busy to remember to take very many pictures and too tired to do anything with the ones I did take! Haha! It was a crazy first full week. I am excited to get to know my new little munchkins! Here are some things we did this week!

We worked on writing our names! A lot of my little guys can actually write their names this year, but it's always good to work on correct formation! How much do I love sheet protectors!?!? Makes something like this way more fun! I use the boxes to help contain their writing. They will see similar boxes on all of their writing paper too! So this is good practice to get ready for that! They learn to start writing their name at the smiley face and end at the stop sign. This helps to avoid the mirror writing that only kindergarteners seem to be capable of!

 We practiced putting the letters of our names in the correct order to make our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees!

We played the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom magnet letter game. To play, one child picks up a letter and shows the rest of the kids of the kids at their table what letter they picked. Then they place the letter are the bottom of the tree and slide it up the tree saying, "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom will there be enough room? Here comes A up the coconut tree. It's a great game for practicing taking turns! 

And that's about all I have in me for tonight folks! I have so many things I want to share, I will try to be better about getting them on here! Have a happy week teacher friends!!
