Five for Friday! Today I'm linking up again with Doodlebugs Teaching to share my 5 random things from this week.
1. Birthday Party for Dr. Seuss
We celebrated today after we did our regular assessments. The kids wore their PJs, brought in their blankets, books, and pillows. They then set up shop and read. Sometimes by themselves, sometimes with a partner, sometimes full class. That was the morning, and this afternoon we watched a little movie complete with red fish and gummy eggs as a treat. This Readathon was also a technology fundraiser for my class. Here is the letter I sent home in case you are looking for ideas.
2. Figurative Language Rainbows
This week we continued on with figurative language, this time adding examples and color to a Figurative Language Rainbow. I am so proud of myself for figuring how to make a rainbow on PowerPoint.
3. Writing Writing Writing
The state writing assessment is next week and my students have been working hard on their paragraphs. I am so thankful that the Rainbow Edit is working for this group. I think that alone has helped make them into better writers. Now I don't have to remind them to include indents, capitals, punctuation, details, topic sentence, and spelling.
I want to personally thank the Girl Scouts at my school for providing ample opportunities to purchase boxes of cookies. I want to thank my husband for preferring a certain kind that I can't stand, and for being supportive in purchasing boxes for the cupboard and for the freezer.
5. Last but not least, I want to thank you for your support when I posted this picture on Facebook.
Hope you had a great week!
