It's here!!!!! It's officially winter break and I am so excited! I truly adore each one of my little friends but I am also truly going to enjoy each minute of these next 2 weeks off! Here's my Five for Friday for this week:
1. I posted this on Instagram this week- how cute is this friend's little drawing of the person with legs attached to her head?
2. My little friends had fun with penguins with warm cups of cocoa and Santa and his reindeer while reading and sorting CVC words by vowels and word families!
4. After reading There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell, my little friends worked on sequencing and practiced their knowledge of letter sounds by making a list on the board in order of the things the old lady swallowed. My students LOVE any chance they get to write on 'the teacher board,' so they definitely enjoyed having their chance to add words to the board!
5. I know Amanda wrote about this last Friday, but I have to share again about our pen pals. We love having our blogging buddies Sarah and Tamra from First Grade Buddies as our pen pals! My students were in love with their bracelets and cards they got from their buddies. My little friends were shouting "thank you" to their buddies as if they could hear them- they were just so happy!
