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:


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:

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:

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!
