I’m linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five For Friday Linky. I love the randomness of these blog posts because lately that seems to be my forte’ . . . being random. When you’re done checking out my week, make sure you click on the Five for Friday icon at the end to see other bits of randomness from like-minded teacher bloggers.
I feel like I have literally spent the last month parked in a chair on one soccer field or another. All three of my little ones are playing this fall and the only saving grace for having the older one on a pre-travel team is that I get to do a little shopping in between games…yippee!!! Last week when I was killing time before our next game I was able to pop into JoAnne’s and find these amazingly cute little spider buttons. Aren’t they darling! I’ll be making a freebie for you with them so if you have the chance go pick some up. In the meantime, my friend Hadar, from Miss Kindergarten, spied my find and created a cute little activity that goes along with them as well. Go snatch it up at her blog Miss Kindergarten.
Did I mention that I have 2 boys for every girl this year. I love the energy and movement that comes in a classroom full of active boys (and girls) and to keep those little ones who haven’t quite managed to master all their letters yet, I have them work with this ABC Parking Lot activity. It’s a freebie actually, and you can pick it up by clicking on the picture if you don’t already have it.
And for those sweet things ready for letter sounds, I used this version that includes beginning and ending sounds. This was THE favorite station this week and we’ll see many more days of use with this and the extension activity I have for CVC words that goes with it.
And finally, as a bonus picture I have to answer the question, ‘while most teachers get apples, guess what I get?’ TA-DAH…. A Squash of course! One of my little sweeties brought me this in this week. I don’t know if you’re a squash lover or not but there’s nothing like fresh baked acorn squash with butter and brown sugar. YUM!
So how was your week? Drop me a line and let me know what you’re working on. And in the meantime, stop over and check out the other Five for Friday participants this week.
