Five For Friday: What a week!

It was definitely a full moon week and the start of the fair...
that and we are anticipating fall break!

Here's what we have been up to this week:

1. I worked on a vocabulary tool kit to help my kids when they are writing. Alex enjoyed it a lot too! You can find it here at my store.

2. The pigeon came to visit! He's helping us remember to use punctuation when we write! As I conferenced with kids I had them add some sentences where they used punctuation to help make their writing sound more interesting! 

3. Let's break for a home success... Alex wrote his name! Backwards of course and the A looks like an H but... look at that E! It starts by the brown arrow and he decided his X needed to be big (see black arrow). He is close to turning 4 but has had little interest in writing at home... Those two days of weekly preschool are helping out!

4. This sweet child could barely write her name at the start of the year. We worked together to stretched out the sounds but I was so proud that she heard all these sounds and knew the letters to match!! 

5. We started working on our new bulletin board. We are currently in our Sharing the Planet unit. We are focusing on earth materials, natural resources and then what we need to do to sustain them. These first couple of weeks our class has been talking about earth materials so the kids wrote down facts about water, rocks, sand, and soil and why they are important to us. Them they made the pictures to go with their facts. The kids were so creative! Next week we need to bridge the gap between earths resources and how we need to take care of them. I'm trying to think of a way to help lead them into that discovery by themselves! I have a couple book ideas, but would always welcome any great suggestions!

So glad it is the weekend!
