I'm here today to give you a little peek at LAST WEEK since I totally missed blogging almost every single day.
We are completely engrossed in our animal groups study right now! I LOVE this unit and can't wait until we start our informational reading unit that coordinates with it next week!
Right now, we're learning all about the characteristics of the animal groups. We make a "touch" book during this unit as we learn about the animals' body coverings.
HERE. They're so easy to make and can be used for a TON of different things! We're using them to practice spelling our number words right now. The kiddos get SO excited when they get to move a number to the "mastered" side!
HERE it is. I'd love to hear how it works for you if you try it out! :)
Krispy Kreme doughnuts + Vampire Teeth + Chocolate Chip Eyes = Monster Doughnuts!
We didn't have our annual Halloween party this year, but we did have our family over on Halloween night for games, food, and trick-or-treaters. It's always fun! I was able to scare lots of little kids with my swinging zombie girl (aka Liza Jane) in our garage.
Our school doesn't get to dress up for Halloween. This means I was SUPER jealous of all of your Instagram costume parade pictures!!! The 50th day of school was the day after Halloween, so on Friday students could dress up in clothing from their favorite decade. Here are my cuties that participated.
Adorbs! We had everything from the 50s to the 60s and, of course, the 80s!
And, it was a home game again this weekend...FINALLY! So, I spent a little time here...
I did finish off a new little writing unit. I LOVE writing workshop in my classroom. I love that I can teach my kiddos different genres of writing through mini-lessons but they still have "free-choice" writing time where they are writing and publishing stories on their own. I've blogged a lot about my writing folders and how kids take their work through the writing stages. Well, I finally compiled a "publishing unit" - this is everything I use to have kiddos publish their work, take it home to share with families, and even host publishing parties.
Take a look at the sweet invitations I made for it. I can't wait to see how it all comes together for our sweet friend!
