#foursquarefridays {1/9/15}....T.G.I.F! (freebie included!)

Hello!  We hope you had a nice week back after break.  We had a productive week and we are definitely ready for a nap this weekend!  

Each Friday we share about our week on IG with a weekly linky called #FOURSQUAREFRIDAYS. You should join us!  This is what our week looked like:

1.  Our kiddos enjoyed writing goals for 2015.  This flip book activity was nice because it allowed the students to make goals for each part of their life (my goal for home, my goal for school, my goal for friendships, my goal for healthy living).  Under each number is a goal and a picture.  

-My goal for home:  I hope to go to bed earlier.
-My goal for school:  I hope to do math better.
-My goal for friendships:  I hope to be a better friend.  I want to listen to my friend.
-My goal for healthy living:  I hope to eat more veggies.  

2.  Our kiddos are enjoying our new unit on time.  We are practicing time using our packet, "Party Time."  

Party Time includes 5 fun activities for your students to practice telling time to the hour and half hour.  

3.  Our reading groups this week have been focused on text evidence this week.  We used THIS FREEBIE, which contains winter based passages.  We are so pleased with how our students are starting to "get it" when it comes to finding answers in the text! 

4.  After break we also started a new unit on Nonfiction Text.  To start off, we reviewed the differences between fiction and nonfiction text.  If you'd like a FREEBIE to work on comparing and contrasting fiction and nonfiction CLICK HERE to download the packet below. 

This packet contains multiple activities, including printables, as well as, a Read the Room / Scoot activity and header cards to use for sorting or an anchor chart.  

Join us for #FOURSQUAREFRIDAYS to share about your week!
