Five for Friday : Black Friday Edition!

http://doodlebugsteaching.blogspot.com/2013/11/five-for-friday-linky-party-november_29.html
Happy Friday!  We weren't sure whether or not Five for Friday would be linked up today, but it is one of the favorite parts of the week, so we're sharing anyways! 

Have you been out grabbing some good deals?!  We've been having fun putting up special deals on our favorite products!  It's not too late to join in!  We'll be having special deals until 10pm (EST).  Follow us on FB to find out specifics! 

We're also getting ready for TpT's Cyber Sale on Monday 12/2 and Tuesday 12/3!

During our 2 days of school this week, we took time to celebrate being thankful with our kiddos!  First we had a "Thankful Show and Tell" where kiddos brought in a small something to represent what they were thankful for.  We made a word splash with Wordle.net and below is the result.  It was so neat to see how big the words "family" and "books" were....we had lots of kiddos who were thankful for those!

We also had our kiddos get together to do some buddy reading with Fall books.  They had a great time together and enjoyed having a sweet treat while they read!

For several weeks we have been practicing written responses with our guided reading books.  However, we saw our kiddos still needed some reinforcement with this skill.  Especially with the need to show evidence and proof from text to support their answer.  This is now a requirement for our running records, so it is important our kiddos become skilled with this practice!  We made a new pack of reading passages as an additional resource for our kiddos to work on written responses with text evidence.  We scaffolded the passages to start with lots of support to help kiddos form their response, then the support lessens until kiddos respond independently.  We are really excited to start using these in the classroom!  You can grab it here in our TpT store for a special price of $5...TODAY only!
