Five for Friday

Friday, Friday, Friday...
let's talk about what this week brought us.

We learned all about the life cycle of a chicken this week.
Today we read the book Chicks and Salsa (a must when teaching about chicks). 
In the story the chickens/pigs/ducks are tired of eating thier food so they have fiestas!
Our reader's response was to think about what we are tired of eating and what we want to eat instead.

I'm tired of eating...

Instead I want to eat...
healthy food
raman noodles

This is our second week writing how-to papers. 
This week we involved a favorite food and taught our peers how to make a PB&J sandwich.
We actually turned our paper into a sandwich book!!!

If you like the above activity, you can find the templates (plus 10 more) in my TpT shop.

Vowels pairs ai/ay were are spelling pattern for the week.
We sorted words and played a school appropriate version of "spin the bottle".
They each got to spin my empty water bottle and then use the word in a sentence.

Funny how something SO simple can be SO fun!

Last of all, here are the ladies that keep me:

They make this job worth it!
Love them BIG.
