Five for Friday-lots of stuff!


I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday.

Well, this week has been a fun and exciting week at school and personally. This week we read and talked about monsters, which all of my little ones loved!

1. Shape and Letter Monster
Here is a picture of my shape/letter monster that we use during circle time. I give the am group shapes and the pm group letters and then we say "Shape monster, shape monster munch munch munch...How about a ____ for my lunch" and the kids put it in his mouth. They love this.

We made some letter and shape monsters.

2. We made these adorable these adorable coffee filter monsters. They colored them with markers and then we had them spritz some water on them to make the colors blend together.

3. Our OT did this fun activity with our kiddos. You have the students form newspaper into balls (great for strengthening little ones arches in their hands). Then, she had them be a bear and climb over the mountain. We sang this song with them, "A bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain, a bear went over the mountain, to get to the other side".

4. So personally this week, Matt has gotten his job and will be a manager at fitness club and it starts Monday! Ethan turned 2 yesterday and on Tuesday, I finally had my first ultrasound. We are expecting our second 'lil pumpkin' this May 2014. I am 9 weeks along and that has been part of the reason why I have been so exhausted lately! The start of the school year is exhausting and add in the first trimester and I am going to bed at the same time Ethan does each night. We are super excited about all the happenings this week.

5. A little freebie for everybody. A Colorful Spiders emergent reader and it also focuses on big vs. small, which has been VERY challenging for my kiddos this year.

You can get it on tpt
