Five for Friday!

Happy Friday friends! I hope that you are all having a wonderful week! We are linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for some Five for Friday fun!




We have been working hard this week on our thank you letters for our Donor's Choose project. None of our donors requested letters but I just can't let my kiddos go without writing any. We are working on writing some letters to the donors that we do know. They have been taking this quite seriously!



I caught this today. This guy is after my teacher heart for sure! Most of the kiddos rush to the computers or iPads when they are finished. This guy chose to sit and read his book. He was SO focused! I LOVE their love for reading! I love it when I see them make the choice on their own. He's not the first and only one to do it but he is usually a computer rusher. It's so nice to see him focus on reading:)



Anyone who knows me, or who has read our blog in the past, knows I love sharks. Well, we are working on opinion writing this trimester and I am so excited to be able to educate my kiddos on sharks and their importance. I found this really cool website, sharks4kids.com, which is all about educating children on the importance of sharks. We are working on this prompt and the kiddos are H.O.O.K.E.D! The kiddos are going to state their opinion on the prompt and support it with information we are learning from this website. LOVE!



We have had lovely weather up here in the Seattle area! It has been sunny and in the 80's. These kiddos got to spend time during the week fishing. Their daddy took them, along with one of my besties son, while I was at work. Boy, did they have fun! They definitely take after their daddy!



It's Earth Day! If you are looking for some extra reading for your kiddos, check out our Earth Day freebie! This is a set of leveled passages, levels A-I, as well as text-dependent questions, vocabulary and sight word practice. To check it out click the picture or click HERE.

Well I'm off to work on my baby girl's 6th birthday party, which is Saturday. The only thing I have done so far is order the cupcakes. Yikes! I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!!
