Five for Friday 6.28.13


It's Friday!  We are linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share 5 things about our week! 

-ONE-
Each weekend we are putting a different product on sale.  This week, our sale product is "Shapebot Shape Activities."   This 42 page document is only $1.50 through Sunday!  See below for more info...

"We created this packet to strengthen our resources for the new Common Core shape standards. We wanted to create a strong connection between 2-D and 3-D shapes and have students use new terms that come with Common Core; such as attribute (defining and non-defining), edges, vertices, and faces. We also included practice with 2-D shapes and 3-D shapes in academic pictures and real life pictures so students would have lots of exposure to the shapes and multiple opportunities to say the shape names."  


-TWO-
We are loving our SUMMER!!!  This is what Sarah has been up to...


She's painting 2 rooms!  Painting is a lot of work, that's for sure.  

-THREE-
I'm not working quite as hard!  In my spare time, I started this book:

Do you know I have found some of my FAVORITE books in People Magazine??? They have a "Great Reads" section in each issue; you'll have to check it out some time! 

-FOUR-
It's not all play this summer, we are working too!  This week we have been working on 3 more sets of Math Bags (will be up and ready this weekend) and our Reading Comprehension and Fluency passages (that will be up and ready in the coming weeks).  


-FIVE-
This next year we are learning a new system called mCLASS.  This program is how we will administer Running Records - on an iPad.  We are both a little nervous about this.  We had a quick training in the Spring and will have a full training in August.  Do any of you use mCLASS?  If so, how do you like it?  Is it easy to adjust to?

Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Yes, she's great. I need to finish this one so I can start another. I finish books pretty fast in the summer, but they drag on way too long in the school year. :)
