Friday Flashback Linky

It's Friday!! :)

My Spring Break starts today!! :)

Hip! Hip! Hooray!! :)

There is nothing that makes me happier than getting to sleep a little later!

Well, maybe having awesome tickets for the Maroon 5's a little teaser, but I'll share more about the concert in my Sundays in the South post in a couple of days.
If you are an Adam Levine fan, you will not want to miss that post! :)  *swoon* #mostamazingconcertever

But, back to my school flashback for this week.  Seeing that I was only there for 2 1/2 days, it'll be a short one!

On Tuesday, we finally had our Tall Tale Tea.  This is the culmination to our Tall Tale unit where students performed three Tall Tale Readers' Theaters for parents, sang a tall tale song, read their own original tall tale stories, and shared their region scrapbooks that we had created in social studies.

It was an AWESOME day! :)

Here's a little clip from our John Henry practice.

I found that videotaping a practice for them to watch really helped them improve their final performances.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to tape the final productions since I was at the computer controlling the backdrops on the computer.

Here's a clip of them singing the tall tale song practice....

After finishing up Tall Tales, we jumped right into our next genre of Poetry.  I always incorporate Dr. Seuss into the rhyming aspect of this unit.  I know, I know...the entire world studied Dr. Seuss in March so we're a little late to the party, but it just fits better during this unit in my mind. :)

We read Green Eggs and Ham and then students created their own pages telling about crazy foods they don't like for a class book!
We've also been studying facts vs. opinions and we create our Fact/Opinion spiders.....they loved them!
Well, that's about all I could cram into my short work week. What did you do this week?


  1. OK so this is adorable! Where did you get the script and music for this??? I want to do this too! piccolal at bellsouth dot net

  2. I love the fact and opinion spiders - too cute! And the Tall Tale Tea is a FABULOUS way to end the unit and involve the parents in what the kiddos have been learning.

    Excellent post - I can't wait to link up! :)
