President's Day and iPad Fun

Wow!  Is it just me or do short weeks seem longer than a regular week?  We did not have school on Monday for President's Day.  We were also off on Tuesday for Staff Development Day.  That means I only had three short days with my Kinders.  I tried really hard to pack a lot into those three days.

We learned about President Washington and President Lincoln this week. We read several books about the presidents.  One of our favorites was George Washington's Teeth.  My Kinders just couldn't believe that George Washington had lost all of his teeth.  {This definitely reinforced our dental health unit we just completed.  lol}

We completed my President's Day Position Words book on Thursday.  I was so proud that my students were able to identify different position words as it has been a while since we practiced them.

We also completed directed drawings of both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  These turned out super cute!  I loved how each one was unique!  Here are some examples from my Kinders.

On top of all the President's Day activities that we did this week, we got to use the classroom set of iPads for the first time today.  My bestie brought her class in my room with the other classroom set.  We decided to let them explore, and boy did they!  They were having so much fun!  Just picture about 55 Kinders in one room with iPads.  Let's just say we had to turn down the volume on a few of them.  lol

My principal told us that there is money to buy apps, and I have absolutely no idea what to buy as I am an Android girl. Please leave a comment with your favorites.  I am looking for some great apps that align with the Common Core Standards.  Thanks!

I hope you have a lovely weekend!
