Five For Friday - September 18, 2015

I am once again linking up with the super fab Doodle Bugs Teaching for another peek at my week!
This has been a super busy week, but check me out :D

On Saturday night we took our little Buddy to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate his 6th birthday. The kiddos had a ball running around and playing games. All of them that is except Alexa, she was petrified of the mouse!!
In writing, we have been working on goal setting. I purchased Deanna Jump and DeeDee Wills, you can find it here. It seriously has been a life saver for my planning in writing!!! Love their work :)
In reading, we have been talking about characters. We read Lilly's Big Day and I used the mouse clipart from the amazing Mel of Graphics from the pond!! The kiddos loved creating their character pyramid.

Many of my kiddos are early readers. They are still struggling with CVC words and they don't yet know their sight words. I created this product to assist them with early stages of reading and comprehension. You can find this Reading Comprehension NO PREP Printables. The kiddos really enjoyed showing me what they knew!

Our art teacher had all the kiddos draw portraits of their favorite teacher. These fabulous drawings (over 700) are in the hallway that all the kiddos and staff wall through everyday to get to the cafeteria. This one portrait cracked me up! I often say my hair is like  a birds' nest, so I wonder if that's why the student drew a bird at the top of my hand saying tweet :)

Wishing you another great week!

  2. I am teaching 1st grade this year too, and my kiddos are still sounding out simple CVC words. We have been trying some writing, but it has taken work! :) I will have to check out some of the products you mentioned.
