Five for Friday!

23 January 2015

I'm excited today to join in on the Doodle Bugs Five for Friday Linky Party!  It's been a random kind of week around here so this is the perfect opportunity for me to post and share about some random things I'm loving.

Today during calendar we put on our 95th sticker...the 100th day is right around the corner and I am so excited!  I love celebrating all that we have accomplished this year in first grade.

UPDATE: Due to popular request, these ten frames are available as part of a calendar pack here or in a separate ten frame pack with color options here. :)  And for a more detailed look at how I use these during calendar time, check out this post here!

I am loving this big book I found from Scholastic (here)! It provides the perfect introduction to non-fiction text features.  My kids love it and I love the quality examples of each feature that are provided in one book.  Now we can take what we've learned and start hunting for text features in other books and start using some in our own writing.

 This 120 pocket chart had been sitting in my Amazon cart for months before I finally decided to go ahead and buy it.  I'm so glad that I did.  It is from Carson Dellosa (here) and has been such a useful resource for my kids as we enter the realm of place value. We have been using it left and right...and I am currently on the hunt for more 120 chart games!

 This week I used little vertical ten frames and Starburst to practice grouping tens and to really get my kids using the whole "tens and ones" language.  This was probably one of my better ideas...sugar is so engaging!

 I've been working on a vowel team packet and I'm trying out some of the pages on my kids this week.  Hopefully all goes well and I will have this posted to my store soon!

 I love a little bit of random!  Happy Friday, all!

  2. I constantly emailed this weblog post page to all my associates, for the reason that if like to read it after that my friends will too.

  3. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

  4. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
