Linking up again with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another Five for Friday post from this week!
We've been working like BIG KID readers on our rainforest close reading passages. We are hard core highlighters and text evidence-finders! These close reads have also been a hit in my TpT store which is great news to me!
I just recently started having my students lead the questioning part of small group on the second or third day of our close read. They love acting like the teacher and are even using my sayings while they are in charge...."Are you sure that's the main idea? I think it's a little too specific." Cracks me up!
This would be my lovely yoga-teaching, karate-black-belt, marathon-running mother. I managed to snap a picture when she was embarrassed and showing me her Mom's Dance. Yes, Mom's Dance. She is taking dance classes at my brother's hip hop studio. The class is all moms, and they will all be performing a Michael Jackson song at the recital in June. I don't know what else to say other than, oh.my.word! Can't wait to see that! HA.
My kiddos and I have found the best math game for counting coins. Need to give kids practice with trading coins for other coins? Want some competition? Make sure you check it out here. Instant hit!
This afternoon I got all dolled up in one of my dresses that requires dry cleaning (eeekkk!). More details to come in the future!
Enjoy the weekend!
