Happy Creative Five For Friday Recap!

Hello there!  I'm so happy to have you stop by to see what exciting events happened last week.  It's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for:



These Morning Message will give you an overview of our learning last week:

 Every day I create a Morning Message that reflects and reinforces what we're learning in class - it's a great way to review.  Plus, we read the messages together so we're working on our fluency as well.

 Thursday was International Dot Day - check out our creations:

 In addition to creating, each student needed to sign his/her work.

Thursday was also Back to School Night!

Every year, my students make a pencil and an apple book which create a beautiful and colorful bulletin board:

Anchor Charts and Me Bag Example:

We have learned about types of sentences and multiplication in the morning.  After lunch, we continue to share our Me Bags which are full of interesting items:

I would be candy in my Me Bag, too!

A Hit Book!

The kids went crazy over this book:

Sam and Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett starts out with two friends who decide to dig a hole.  Their dog comes along for the adventure.  By the end, the characters find themselves on the ground.  The kids came up with so many theories of what really happened to Sam and Dave.  Here are two examples:

*They went to another dimension.

*It was a dream.

I read the book twice, and they want to read it again to look for clues about what happened.  This is definitely a book to check out!

  1. Thanks for the book recommendation!

  2. Our back to school night (open house) was last week. It was HOT and humid, but almost every family showed up. I like your morning messages. You really do get lots of review in by using them. Have a great week!
    Laughter and Consistency
