Five for Friday!


Happy Friday friends! I hope that you all have been having a great week! What better way to kick off the weekend then with a Five for Friday linky??? Thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting!





Seriously, Barnes and Nobles just gets me! I have a slight obsession with sharks. EVERY time I walk into Barnes and Noble they have some awesome shark finds! The game is my favorite! I could stay in that store forever!!



Have you checked out our latest blog series? We really wanted to share ideas on how to coordinate all areas of your reading instruction and layer them so that students are getting multiple exposure points to your topics. Plus, with each one we give away a FREEBIE! Yay! Click HERE to check out our latest post on owls. :)



This year we have been having STEM Fridays. I have been giving the kiddos a challenge to complete and discuss. They LOVE it! I have really enjoyed watching their thinking and dialogue stretch. They love sharing their ideas and helping each other figure out how to solve each challenge. It's pretty fantastic! This challenge came from Brooke Brown's January STEM Pack.

 


This week we have been focusing on MLK but we have also been working on using our inferring skills to discuss character's feelings and reactions in a story. I HAVE to recommend these stories! They are both set during segregation and they both talk about how the characters LOVE the library. It's a great way to talk about segregation, character response and reaction as well as text to text connections. 



This week we finally posted our Fairy Tales Leveled Passages Set! This has been a long time coming for us. There are five different fairy tales included. Each fairy tale comes leveled a - i. Click HERE or on the picture to check them out.


I hope that you all have a wonderful and restful weekend!! :)
