Learning ar!

Ahoy Mateys,

We had pirate day to learn the ar "bossy r" sound...I was a BAD teacher & got so overwhelmed with the F.U.N. that I didn't snap any photos of my cuties in their costumes!

{I sad!}

But, thanks to Abby - my team had matching Aaargh! t-shirts.  I found striped socks at Target, so my ensemble was complete with capri's, a red bandana, & one hoop earing:

Have you heard of HeidiSongs?  Well, her Sounds Fun Phonics DVD has a pirate themed ar song for /ar/ & my kiddos LOVED it - or they just told me that, cause I threatened 'em with walkin' the plank!

We're finishing off our pirate fun this week with some synonym, vocabulary, & map skills sheets from Michelle Oakes' unit.

His parrot was saying, "Polly wants a cracker" - LOL!!

SO MUCH TO DO...I'm running out of time {anyone else feel me?}.  I was observed by my math interventionist...LOVE her {every school needs a Barb} doing a Georgia Math Unit Plan today.  Have you seen them?  If not, follow the link & click on your grade level - you will be in love!  (Our current curriculum doesn't meet the CCSS, so we aren't ordering the student consumables.  Instead we're purchasing the GA Math Units & supplies needed, then using our curriculum to supplement as needed.)  So excited to use them in action!

Happy Wednesday,

Miss Kristan King


  1. Your shirt turned out cute! And even though I only have 1 student, I totally feel you on the whole running out of time thing! May is just CUH-RAY-ZEE!

    1. CUH-RAY-ZEE & not slowing down...when it finally slows down, you'll be gone!

      Oh well, we'll have to squeeze in the FUN where we can this summer :0).
