Five for Friday

Are you lucky enough to have the day off or with no kiddos?
I am but I'm stuck doing report cards...bleh.
Here's a few things my firsties did this week!

We began and finished out unit on length.
Here's a quick informal assessment we did.
I had each student pick 3 things in their desk and order them shortest to longest!
We loved learning a little about penguins this week.
We read the book "If You Were a Penguin" and completed a reader's response craft with rip art!
One of my all time favorite books to read throughtout the entire year is "Two Bad Ants".
It's the most perfect book for inferring.
That's just what we did below.
{Read a more detailed post about it HERE and HERE}
Another great winter read is "The Snow Globe Family".
I read this to them and then they had to visualize what it would be like to be inside their own snow globe!

Since we are out of school for MLK, we talked about him one day this week.
We recorded our dreams too!
"I have a dream that one day my school will have a warmer cafeteria."
She hot this one spot on!!!
Enjoy your holiday weekend and don't forget to link up with Doodblebugs Teaching!
