Five for Friday 8/8/2014

I love being able to give highlights of my week by linking up with Kacey, from Doodle Bugs Teaching.

1. Ladybird Addition
We have been doing lots of practice with addition this week. I saw this on Pinterest, originally. They turned out so cute!


2 Questioning
This week we focused on asking questions when we read. I have been modelling how to question and the sorts of questions we can ask when reading until now.
On Wednesday, I read a book and stopped half way. I let the students ask some questions. I scribed them all of course! We then continued reading and realized that some questions we could answer by reading the book, others only the author could answer. I stuck all their questions on post it notes and referred to them as we went along. 

3. Fruit Loop Words
This week we covered long and short /oo/. And, because we had bags of fruit loops left over from our 100th day activities, what better way to use them to make /oo/ words!
Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos (I must get better at remembering to take photos!)
Basically, the students had pictures and they sounded them out, wrote the words, but instead of writing /oo/ they put fruit loops there instead.
We may have had a few fruit loops somehow end up into little mouths..."by accident". :)

4.Catching Up With Friends
I will admit that I've been super sneaky this week and scheduled this post, so I could spend the evening catching up with my best friends. :)

5. Long Weekend!
It's Ekka (Brisbane Exhibition) week next week. So I get a long weekend! Yay! Enough said :)

Till next time, 

Stay joyful!

  1. Hmm... like the Fruit Loop word making idea. And the timing of 100 Day is good with the O sounds, too. Good idea. Thanks for posting. Kathleen

  2. I love your lady bugs. The blue background is perfect for the display! I'm like you- sometimes I forget to take photos. We are doing some team building activities right now and photos and videos would be spectacular, but I get so caught up in the task that I forget to take pics!
