I am linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday! Yesterday at bus time I said, "Oh, I forgot it wasn't Friday today," and one of my little girls said, "That is EXACTLY what my mom said. She said it should be Friday today!" As you can guess, her mom is a teacher, too.
Thank you, Kacey, for hosting!
I updated my Fun in the Fall Prezi with some of Thanksgiving videos that I love. I also have some Election Day video on there, too. If you don't have the prezi, you can get it free at my TPT store! It's fun to use for those in between minutes that you want to have something right there to use.
Here is my favorite turkey video. You have probably all seen it, but in case you haven't, I just love the way he struts. We might as well get right into the next holiday...
I added little thought bubbles over Quite Mouse's head - mainly to help the kids remember the "sh" blend. He makes me smile so I thought I would share him. He is all over the room- just to remind the kids to use inside voices. (I have a great little group- just a loud one!) Here are a couple spots he makes an appearance.
This mess of a view is by my door but I thought I would show/explain it. I put up different hands with different sight words each week. The "sh" spray is over the phone. The alligator and bear groups are the way I send my class to lockers to pack up. I just put every other child alphabetically into a group so when they open the lockers in the hall (which are in alphabetical order), they don't have someone right beside them. It works so much better.
My iPad Class Rules Sign was free from For His Glory TPT store!
We talked about small moments this week as we began our Narrative Writing unit. I wrote this post about some of my favorite things to do to introduce and teach about small moments, as well as some of my favorite books to use.
Happy November 1st! :)
