Five for GOOD Friday and a SALE!

It has been a month or two since I've linked up with Doodlebugs for  little weekly randomness update!  
 1. Inferring with Easter Eggs
 I gave my students an egg to take home to put an object in.  They took their clue sheet home and wrote down 3 clues to give to the class. We have been working on making inferences all week. This was a great activity to reinforce how schema and clues work together. And best of all, they had a BLAST!

2. Spring has Sprung
 We talked all about spring this week. We headed outside to enjoy some beautiful spring weather.  I had the kids record evidence of spring for an adjective activity we did later that day using the words to describe spring. We came across a caterpillar and the kids went crazy!

3. God through a Child's Eyes
This is so sweet and fitting for Good Friday that I just had to share God through the eyes of one of my students.
4. Inferencing
 We've been working HARD on inferencing. Here are some great ideas we will be working on next week from Mrs. Richardson's Class. She has some fabulous ideas including anchor charts and  inferring with No David!  
5. Happy Easter Sale
Come on a hunt with me through my TpT store to find my 5 favorite products that are on sale all Easter weekend! Happy hunting!



  1. What great ideas you have! I love your inferring activity. I will need to save this for next year.

    I had a student who wrote a story during writing time this week that was titled "God loves" He went on to write about how God loves people and pretty much everything.

    Happy Easter!

  2. I did some inferring too with Eggs this week! Don't you think EGGS are the it thing in first grade??? My kids went nuts all week over the eggs! Love your connections the Kids made with God...Wish I could do that and not get fired. That is public schools for you!
    Happy Easter!

  3. I'm with Julie - it's crazy how we can't even mention "God" without fear of a parent running into the office! :) Love your inferencing activity!
