See, I told y'all that I was going to link up on time this week. ;-)
I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs to share five random things about my week. It's been such a LONG week. I am so glad that we have Monday off to rest. I'm in need of it.
Number 1-I had to share a picture from our party yesterday If you read my blog post yesterday, then you saw that I played the cookie game where you had to get the cookie into your mouth using only your facial muscles. My kiddos were still talking about it today. So much fun!
Number 2-I am using WAY too much paper on literacy centers. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE centers and differentiated guided reading. Fridays are our "Fun Fridays in reading. Students finish their work from the week and then get to participate in fun literacy activities. Today, I tried the Daily 5. They loved it and asked me if they could do this all the time instead of our "other centers". Hmmmm....I have a lot to think about this weekend and definitely for next school year.
Number 3-I read this book to my class yesterday during our Interactive Read Aloud time. It was a hit. Such a cute and funny story, but had a great lesson to go along with it.
Number 4-I purchased Rachelle's, What the Teacher Wants, packet about the legend of St. Valentine. She has such cute ideas! This packet was adorable and they learned so much. Definitely put this on you wishlist for next year, friends if you didn't buy it. My kiddos had so much fun talking about St. Valentine and understanding what Valentine's Day is all about.
Number 5: This time last year I was on maternity leave with a 1 month old. This year, I have a rambunctious 1 year old who's in to everything. Brayden would not let me get a good picture of him. He has on his "hunk of burning love" shirt. Too cute not to share!
Link up and share all about your week! I'm finishing up a new packet. It's called "Shufflin' into Subtraction". My students used it this week and loved it. Details coming soon. :-)
Lots of love,
