Fast Five For Friday!

Hello!  The weekend is quickly coming to a close, and I'm still determined to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for:

We've been delighted to received so many gingerbread people!  Here is one of the letters:






During snack I have been reading one of my favorite chapter books:  Keep Your Courage Sarah Noble:


This book is based on a true story!  Eight year old Sarah accompanied her father from Massachusetts to Connecticut in the 1600's so he could build a house for the family.  Sarah cooks for her father but most importantly befriends the Native American children.  When the father goes to bring the family to the new house, Sarah stays behind with a Native American family!

 



In addition, we read this book:

Author:  Ellen Conford

By the end of the day, the kids are exhausted so I've been reading out loud as the kids read along.  Luckily, I had seven copies of this book, and my library got me seven more so some kids had to share.  We really enjoy reading together and discussing the story.


We've been learning about contractions and the Pilgrims!






The highlight of the week was the Holiday Shop set up by the PTO so that the kids can purchase their own gifts for their families.  It's always a fun event!



Parent/teacher conferences are next week so it will be a busy one!  Have a wonderful week!

Currently December!

I'm enjoying Friday evening so I can link up with Farley for:



It's amazing how much an athlete can get paid.  This new Red Sox pitcher - David Rice - is going to make millions of dollars over the next 7 years.  He's 30 years old, too. 

Friday is my favorite day of the week.  We have so much fun in school - especially today because the kids had Art and Book Buddies!  Also, we finished up most of our gingerbread people for the Gingerbread Exchange.  I let the kids create their own gingerbread people with a Massachusetts theme, and they really did an amazing job!

This weekend I'm hoping to get A LOT accomplished.  I want to input most of my report card grades.

Other than that, I'm currently enjoying that Friday night feeling and hoping to get to bed early - if I can stay awake until 8:30, that is!

Happy Weekend!
