Five for Friday - March 6, 2015

For today's post, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky party.

This week, we have been concluding our Dr. Seuss unit. My kinders have LOVED reading so many of his books and even watching some of them through YouTube videos. It has been a fun but definitely busy week so take a peek!

This was a fun activity we did early in the week where they had to label Thing 1. They LOVE doing these kinds of activities but we don't do too many of them at this point in kindergarten. We did this one as morning work while the other kinders were coming in.

My TA and I had these shirts made for Read Across America day on Monday. Our kinders thought they were great and we were definitely the talk of the school. I am so blessed to work with such a wonderful TA! She makes my job so much better.

Divider 3
On Wednesday, we celebrated Wacky Wednesday. This little cute was so adorable in her wacky tacky clothes! She was a little embarrassed when she first came into class but I told her she was too cute!

Divider 4
This was a math activity we did this week after reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. We have been working on composing and decomposing numbers to 10 and this was a perfect activity to align our math standards and writing. My kinders loved coloring their fish and then writing out their addition problem with words and numbers...a WIN WIN for me!

These were the beautiful roses that my sweet hubby sent me this week for our 9th anniversary. There were 9 roses - 3 of each color to symbolize our 9 years! It was so sweet and I was so surprised to get the knock on my classroom door with one of the secretaries bringing them to me! 

Now head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching blog to see all the other photos from this week! Have a great weekend! Also don't forget to enter my Rafflecopter giveaway for a free set of Bug Emergent Readers. It ends Sunday and I will draw the winner on Monday!
