The winner of the Nutrition pack was Teacher and Life Long Learner! Congratulations, an e-mail is coming your way. We have a professional development day tomorrow so today was our "Friday" and boy did it feel like Friday. My kids are always a little crazy on Fridays. Here's a glimpse of our "Friday".
To become a member of the bubble gum club they need to score a 100% on any of their end of the week assessments which we take quite a bit of. My county is a little data crazy and they like us to assess frequently. Usually every Friday we take a comprehension test, vocabulary test, spelling test and math test which means I also have a lot to grade! Sometimes, we don't do all four. But, I try as hard as I can to have it all graded and returned while they're finishing up their center work during the day.
Homework is due every Friday. I use the fabulous homework from Second Story Window this year, as well as their fluency homework. They are awesome.
I just started back up using Class Dojo. I used it last year and had mixed feelings, I never remembered to get up and give points. But this year they have an app! So, I can award points using my iPad wherever I am, makes it so much easier! I am still not sure how much I want to do with it but since it's new my kids are all into it for now. We'll see how long that lasts.
We have Fun Friday every Friday, today's activity was watercolor painting. It is sometimes messy but it's a favorite with my kiddos and since it requires very little prep work I love it too! I forgot to take a picture of center and station work but that's also going down on Friday's as well. What a fun "friday"!
I had a sweet teacher ask if there was any way I could separate my Comprehension Stars from the Henry and Mudge pack. So, I did just that! If you'd like to try using the comprehension stars with your kiddos they are only $2.00 in my TPT store!
As always you can leave a comment with your e-mail address and I'll pick a winner to receive a FREE copy. I'm off to try and finish Tales from Around the World: Part Three! Part one and two were so easy but three is taking me forever! Happy "friday" friends!
