Five For Friday

Yay!  It's Friday! And it's a three day weekend.  We have Monday off for Indigenous Peoples Day (aka Columbus Day).  I'm really looking forward to the long weekend.  I'm excited to be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday for the first time in a while.

We use FOSS kits for science in our district and this week was all about Trees!  We were busy observing trees, painting trees, learning about the parts of trees and what trees need to live.  I'd say my little scientists are now tree experts!

This week has also been all about writing numbers 0-9.  I absolutely LOVE these Number Construction sets from Learning Resources.  You can find them on Amazon here.

It's Fleet Week and our school is up high on a hill.  The Blue Angels fly right over the school during their practice runs.  The moment my Kinders hear the jets, all else stops.  So we headed outside to watch.  The giggles and shrieks of joy are so worth it.

We are getting ready for pumpkin week!  It's one of my favorite units to teach.  We will head to the pumpkin patch, explore pumpkins, eat pumpkin treats.  I might be more excited than the kids!  :)  We will be using the activities in my Pumpkin Science Unit that you can find on TpT here.

I am super excited to announce the launch of a new collaborative blog, The Primary Punchbowl!  Check back this Sunday for an exciting Fall Blog Hop where you can pick up some great freebies and enter exciting giveaways! 

Will you join us?

Head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching and see what everyone else has been up to this week.


  1. Hi Andrea,
    That would be exciting to be able to see the Blue Angels fly over the school. I don't blame your kiddos for one minute for wanting to head out and see it. I LOVE the watercolor trees! They did such a great job! See you Sunday for our blog hop and launch!
    Joya :)

  2. Nice blog! Love the colors. Great Pumpkin Science unit! Thanks for sharing. Happy Friday!

  3. Hey Andrea,
    I saw that you're using the Number Construction Kits. I have these too and it's such a great resource! I use it with my Handwriting without Tears program for my special ed students! Thanks for sharing all of your fun ideas!
