Five for Friday {10.3.14}

T.G.I.F!  We are linking up to tell you about our week!

{ONE}
We have a new product in our store that we are pretty excited about!  Print a Standard NO PREP packs are designed to provide engaging practice for specific math standards.  The Print a Standard pack that we just listed is for NBT.1 {Counting and Representing Numbers to 120}.  It contains multiple activities that include a variety of tasks.  Some require just a pencil or crayons and others require scissors and glue.  


Our kiddos are big fans!!!


{TWO}
We kicked off our first Science unit this week by talking about Scientists.  We made these fun Mad Scientists (fun Pinterest find!!):

{THREE}
We were reading detectives this week!  We were learning all about "Tackling the Tricky Parts."  The kiddos enjoyed reading Detective LaRue and then using hand lenses to read words.  



For this fun activity and a lot more, click HERE for a FREE Tricky Parts mini unit!


{FOUR}
  Our Monster Grammar packet covers all of the Common Core Standards for First Grade in ONE PLACE!!  We have loved using it.  


We started using it this week.  Our first topic…nouns!

Each standard in our Monster Grammar packet contains a poster and sorting activity:

Each standard also contains a lot of no prep printables to practice the skill:



We love that the packet contains a combination of activities and printables.  

{FIVE}
We have lots of goodies for you right now!




Have a GREAT weekend!!
