Five for Friday

It's Friday!  Yay!  I'm linking up again with Doodle Bugs Teaching this week to bring you 5 random happenings from my week.  Let's get to it, shall we?

Did you hear that there is a new collaborative blog on the block?  We are The Primary Punchbowl and we are a group of primary teachers who are passionate about teaching, children, and sharing with others.  To celebrate the launch of our new blog, we have an HUGE blog hop going on.  You can collect over 20 freebies, enter to win one of over 20 TpT gift cards, AND enter the extra special giveaway on The Primary Punchbowl.  Hurry over and enter...all giveaways close on Sunday!

The weather here has been downright gorgeous this week and any excuse to get outside is a good one.  We are lucky to have a beautiful school garden and classes with our outdoor education teacher once a week.  This week, we worked on using our 5 senses in the garden and looking for different shapes.

I love, love, love Reader's Workshop!  This week, we worked on partner reading.  My littles totally rocked this!  They loved sharing books with their reading partners.  How cute are these two?!?!

My kinders are rockin' Writer's Workshop this year.  We are working on personal narratives and the stories these kiddos are writing are fantastic!  I love using these golf pencils for their little hands.  

You are not going to want to miss this!  Some hauntingly good fun is coming to the blog on Saturday morning!  Check back for a TREAT from some of my best bloggy buddies!

And check out Doodle Bugs Teaching to catch up on what others have been up to this week!

  5. I need to get on that blog hop! I've been so busy I feel like I have been slacking in the blog business. :o)
    I am glad to hear your kiddos are rocking readers and writers workshop because we just haven't quite gotten into the swing of things yet. Can't wait to read more! :o)
