Five for Friday 5.23.14

Hey everyone!  It's Friday, and it's a 3 day weekend…what a great day!  Here's a peek at our week:

Our store is having a sale...

Our kiddos enjoyed Field Day this week!  Field Day is so different these days…we had bounce houses, water slides, dunk tanks, races of all kinds, tug of war, and so much more.  It was a very hot day but the kiddos didn't mind of course, they had a blast!

We made these fun Pinterest inspired contraction kites.  Contractions are a bit tricky to teach…this was a fun way to review what they are all about!

Each year our grade level assigns a book project for homework.  The fun part about this book project is that they have to use as many shapes, colors, and textures as they can.  We always get some of the neatest posters; so creative!

For the book, Froggy's Sleepover (look at those adorable sleeping bags!)...

For the book, The Little Mouse, The Big Hungry Bear, and The Red Ripe Strawberry…

For the book, Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook…

We started the reading comprehension strategy, Synthesizing today. This can be a difficult strategy.  We used a few (free) graphic organizers from Cara Carroll to help! This book, My Name is Yoon worked great for the "Synthesis Sundae" GO.

We hope you have a nice Memorial Day weekend!
