Finally back for a little weekly recap with Five For Friday. All I have to say is where did this week go? I can't believe there are only 33 days of school left here in central Florida!
FCAT Mania (Florida Testing) Although I teach 1st grade and the test
doesn't start until 3rd, our classroom neighbors were taking the test so
we had to be REALLY quiet! On top of that, our schedules changed, so
our little firsties were all out of sorts... We did send daily treats
to our reading buddies (5th graders) to encourage them and love on
them:)You can check them all out at Technology Rocks Seriously!
2- Wrapping up Farm Fun Here in the country:) I love the Fun On the Farm For First Grade
by Amanda Rich. It had perfect math and literacy ideas for my
firsties. If you haven't been by her TpT store, you should check it
We started our geometry chapter in math learning about three
dimensional shapes. Today, we built 3 dimensional shapes using
marshmallows as vertices and toothpicks as edges. Such a fun way to end
My younger son, Zach finished his FCAT testing this week. I spoke to
his teacher about bringing a snack on Friday and decided to coordinate
her "Cowboy/Cowgirl" theme with a little trail mix. The kids loved the
snack and the bag label:) Dear hubby was amazed I had the
graphics...shhh, I won't tell if you don't!
haven't been on Starfall in quite a while because quite honestly my
class got burnt out on it last year. I pulled it up for a math center
this week and was pleasantly surprised with the updates including lots
of math activities. I would love suggestions for FREE math websites if
you have any!
am off to watch the news. So thankful that the second bomber was
caught. Prayers for the the families who have suffered loss and/or
injury. So thankful for the diligence of the law enforcement agencies and first responders..
May Boston start to heal and find peace in the days ahead.
