Happy Friday everyone! It's time for Five For Friday!
Is anyone else having a hard time keeping up and balancing everything with the beginning of school? Please say I'm not alone...Here's a peek at my week!
We finished presenting our all All About Me Projects this week-my students were super creative with their pieces of posterboard! Here's a few samples:
with the table of contents! (Already using those non-fiction text features!)
Pointe shoes...aren't they amazing (this is a piece of posterboard!)
Radio with microphone! I'm not sure if you can see it, but in the section for school she has a picture of high heels to represent me! heehee TOTAL EXTRA CREDIT!
To start our space unit of study, I thought I'd "hook" them with this oreo cookie moon phases activity.
You know anything with food is very exciting! I think it was the perfect hook to get them excited about this unit!
Pick up this freebie from The Frizz in First Grade.
We have open house next week and I'm trying to make my list of everything I need to get ready (big list!), but I did manage to get one thing done: my thank you mints!
Nice little treat to appreciate your parents!
Pick up these Thank You mint toppers freebie here if you're a Head Over Heels For Teaching Facebook Fan!
My friend Gary from Scrappy Guys is having a great giveaway and I'm so happy to be part of his 100 follower milestone! He's also having a fun linky "Remember When". Here is a link back to my post when I hit the 100 mark back in February! I've learned so much and still have so much to learn.
Don't forget to link up with me tomorrow any ideas, lessons, or tips you have to spark those students!!! See you tomorrow!
