What a crazy day today! We had a lock down for an hour and a half due to someone on the High School campus next door who was reported to have a gun. So scary! This happened at lunchtime, so my kiddies were stuck in the cafeteria without me. When I got back to them, they all hugged me and told me how much they missed me and how scared they were. My poor babies! I just wanted to cry! But the police were awesome and showed up right away. I'm so glad no one got hurt today!
In other news, here's a quick freebie for you! I found some of these plastic shamrock coins at the local craft store and I just had to use them for something! I'm using these in my small groups this week to practice segmenting. We use them like Elkonin boxes - the kids put their coins on the pot, then they slide a coin into each box as we say the sounds in the word (you could also use pennies, counters, or yellow circle die cuts).
