Happy New Years!

Happy New Year’s from Miss J. Chamblee’s class!  I hope everyone enjoyed the break!  I can already see the Christmas magic working in our classroom!   We have worked so hard this week and been great peacemakers!  We are learning all about winter this month!  Here are a few activities we have done so far.

Matching sounds to letters

Count the dots.  Find the hat and scarf to match.

Count the shapes and write the number.  I got this idea (and some of the following activities) from Julie Lee.  Check out her blog and TPT store!

In order to be successful at this activity, students have to know sentence rules: the first letter is capitalized and the last should have a period after it.  Then they have to actually read the sentence and illustrate it to demonstrate their comprehension.  The student did it correctly; I put the snowflakes in the wrong order. lol

This is a snowflake fact book we made this week.

I got this glyph idea from either (I think).  The kids absolutely LOVE it.

The kids decided what needed to be labeled and we worked together to label our snowmen.

REMINDER!  We begin DIBELS testing next week, so please, practice at home.  Practice naming letter, identifying initial sounds, segmenting (breaking) words into sounds, and letter sounds.

Also, a family member of a dear friend just discovered she has cancer in her brain.  The doctors have said that the only treatment is chemo.  However, I know otherwise.  Our God is a powerful God and He answers prayers.  Please, say a pray for Savonya Williams and her family.  

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.



  1. All of these activities look like tons of fun! I'm so sorry for your family friend. Prayer is definitely powerful. I have awarded you the Versatile Blogger award here.
