Six for Saturday

So I'm a day late. I hate being late...but a night with the girlfriends of dinner and shopping definitely won over a blog post late last night! Despite being out 2 days this week to help out with STAAR testing (I told a colleague I would rather have been tied to some of my firsties instead of stuck giving this dumb test), we had a great week in 1st grade!

Instead of the regular 5 for Friday, I added one more picture to make up for my lateness....so it's 6 for Saturday!

We started our perfect plant unit this week by digging up some plant schema to see what we already knew and of course, activate our prior knowledge!

We did a little observing to see how much our plants grew this week.

A Cupcake for the Teacher inspired me to make a similar anchor chart after we discussed ways we could reduce, reuse, and recycle. We also put a "pledge" of one things we can do to help save Earth around the edges! They loved it!

In math, we learned about time all week so before our test Friday, we did a little review game of Time BINGO!
Mother's Day is just 2 weeks away! Holy smokes batman! I created another freebie. Be on the lookout on the blog post tomrrow for a cute, easy, and simple activity to do with your students. Here's a peeky!

And the most exciting part of all.....drumroll please......we O-FFICIALLY started our summer countdown! WOO HOO! 28 days.....


Head on over to Doodle Bugs for her super-fun linky to see what has been happening in classroom all across the country this week!

On another note, if you haven't heard...I'm on Instagram! Follow me here (click on the pic below) for the latest happening in my classroom and life in general.

Enjoy your weekend friends!
