What a week ~ Five For Friday!

Every week seems to fly by when we're working so hard!  We learned a LOT last week so I'm looking forward to linking up with Doodle Bugs!







Morning Messages

I try to make my Morning Messages as relevant and educational as possible:



#LOTSOFSOCKS

My students (mainly the girls) and I had fun wearing mismatched socks on World Down Syndrome Day:


At Morning Meeting, we had a meaningful discussion of visible and invisible disabilities.
Non-Fiction Text Features

When I explained that we would all be making our own Non-Fiction Text Feature poster, several kids exclaimed, "We already did this!"  Immediately upon passing out the headings, someone asked, "What's a caption?"  It just goes to prove how much we need to spiral back and review:



That turkey sandwich from Time For Kids looks so delicious!



Book Recommendations

If you're looking for a fun and humorous book, you definitely need to read:

https://www.amazon.com/I-Yam-Donkey-Cece-Bell/dp/0544087208/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490460861&sr=8-1&keywords=i+yam+a+donkey
Click on book to read more at Amazon.

The donkey insists on misusing the verb, "to be."  The kids LOVED this book, and sometimes, you just need a book to make everyone happy ~ in addition, to reviewing helping verbs!

I also started reading this chapter book during snack:


https://www.amazon.com/Clementine-Spring-Trip-Book/dp/1423124375/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490461092&sr=8-1&keywords=clementine+and+the+spring+trip
Click on book for more details.

First, Clementine and her family live right in Boston; they visit the "Make Way For Ducklings" statues in the Public Garden ~ all in the first chapter!  The class field trip is to Plymouth Plantation!  This is a perfect read-aloud to spiral back to review the Pilgrims, and it's a fun book, too!
