Fabulous Five For Friday!

At long last, I am finally linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for:

Our PTO treated us to a laser program that talked about respect, honesty, integrity, generosity and being true.  The program was put on by Prismatic Magic (www.prismaticmagic.com):


The kids loved the laser show and the music.



We did literacy centers and one math center:


The centers last week included:

*Dictionary center (not pictured) including words related to non-fiction text features like glossary,...

*Math center - review of even and odd numbers as well as place value (I won these centers; you can check them out here.)

*Writing center - I sit with the students in the writing center and work with this small group.  I noticed that many of the kids did not know what it meant to indent the first sentence of a paragraph so I incorporated this concept into my Morning Message.  Also, I bought a Daily Five packet for November.  You can check out the December packet here.

*Listening Center.  The kids listened to Before You Were Mine which told about adopting a dog.  It also showed how the first dog died so I heard from many of the kids that this was the saddest book ever.  When they're done listening to the book, they fill out a brief summary of the book.

*Read with a friend.  For this center, I included some sight word fluency practice (check it out here.).  Then the kids get the read picture book to each other.

*Read to self which we all do together at the end of center time.

The kids really love their literacy/math centers!




Here are some of our Morning Messages which include some improvements such as Fact of the Day and Complete the Multiplication Table:









Check out our wetus:


Even though the wetus turned out to be challenging, they did come out quite cute!






On Friday night, I was in a fashion show/fundraiser for Change is Simple which is a non-profit environmental education program.  It was a sustainable fashion show so I wore my own clothes - styled by Muffy.  The best part was getting my hair and make-up done by volunteers!  Here's the Woburn group:

It was a fun and busy week!
