Five For Friday

I am linking up with Doodlebugs for Five for Friday!

The cold weather hit this week!  We had 2 days with a light dusting of snow on the mountain which meant the winds were freezing!  There were also a few rainy days, I snapped this pic when I was on playground duty during one of the breaks in the weather.

We have been looking at measurement using arbitrary units, here are a few of my kiddos measuring using pop sticks and unifix blocks.

I spent the first part of the week cleaning out the maths room to be able to use it as a place to take small groups.  People it was not pretty so I did not take any pics, the good news is you can now see the floor and I will have some tables and chairs in there on Monday ready to take some small groups for writing, reading and maths.

Of course we ended the week finishing off our Mothers Day craft.  My teaching partner had worked on Mothers Day poems at the start of the week and on my days we made the card and this cute craft from my Mothers Day craftivity packet.  The cutest part of the day was when two of my students asked if they could stay in at lunch to work on them, I said they could come in when I had finished duty.  When I got to the classroom there were about 12 students waiting for me all coming in to work on their gifts.  The Principal saw all the children walking in and came to see what was going on, she told me how heart warming it was to see, especially when I told her I had overheard one precious little cherub say to her friend, "Our mothers are so much more important than our playtime." OH MY GOSH!  How gorgeous!

My kiddos also worked on long e this week using some of the activities from my Long Vowel Digraph pack

But ya know I didn't take any photos!  We used the Sort and Add and the Highlight it, Write it sheet.  Next week we will be using the Spin it, Write it activity which I am sure they will love.

That's it for me, I am off to finish off a Blends pack!
