Five for Friday!

I'm linking up for a very random Five for Friday!  Saddle up and enjoy!  :)



Read Across America!

We had the BEST time celebrating this week!  I've felt so bad dropping the ball this year on many fun holidays, so I was NOT about to let Seussweek slip by!

We read Horton Hears a Who and wrote our opinion of the book, along with a little craft.  




 







 

We went on PebbleGo and learned all about the life of Dr. Seuss.  I made these fun timelines to help piece it all together.









We also read Oh, The Thinks You Can Think and practiced looking for context clues to help us understand new words.  

We read The Cat in the Hat and practiced Cause/Effect.

Finally, we enjoyed green eggs & ham, while reading Dr. Seuss books around the room!  

 
 


It was a super fun week!  


Arrays

We have been working on repeated addition and arrays this past week.  As a culminating activity, we built Array City!  I wrote four repeated addition sentences on the board.  They had to create the array in the window of buildings.  Then, they had to create their own array in the stars and write the repeated addition sentence to match it.  This was one of my favorite activities!  We had a blast!  




 










  

Reader's Theater

In my reading intervention group, we have been using reader's theater to help with our fluency.  I absolutely LOVE the plays in this book:

They were so fun to listen to, so I had two of my little girls record a short snippet from their play, "Goldilocks and the Three Bullfrogs".  I loved the expression they used.  I'm so proud of how far they've come!  :)



Math Movers

I LOVE the Math Mover activities from Hope!  It was a great for a math review activity, that got them moving and thinking!  I might have used the Christmas edition this week.... but no one seemed to notice or mind.  :) 







30 Blows

On a non-educational note, my dear friend turned 30 this week!  YIKES!  That means it's my turn soon!!!  :/  I sent her this fun little package, to help cope with this traumatic birthday.  You can grab the printables here.  I used a 3 inch scalloped circle punch to cut out each tag.  


Happy Weekend, friends!

Do you have links for any of your Dr. Suess worksheets? They look like a lot of fun and good for my students.
