#foursquarefridays {11/7/14}

Hi there!  Hope you've all had a great week!  Below is a peek at what we were up to this past week.

We had fun with the Zero the Hero craftivity from Becca at Foxwell Forest.  We used him to celebrate our 50th day of school.  It also fit in well with our place value unit!  We started our unit on "Connecting with Characters."  We love using Mean Jean!!  She is such a strong character to talk about and the kids relate well to her.  Plus, this book is great for teaching Character Change.  You can grab the freebie we used below!

On Friday, our school had it's annual Veteran's Day Assembly.  This is a great event where Veterans related to kids and from the community are invited to come to our school to be honored for their service.  It is always a wonderful experience.  We also have the kiddos write letters to the soldier to display in the hallways.  You can grab our letter temple below.

Another thing we've been loving in the classroom are our new Emergent Text Evidence Passages!  We love how easy these are to merge into our Guided Reading Groups!  They meet the needs of so many of our readers right now so they can practice this important skill!
