I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. This was another long week. I am in desperate need of just a little break to catch up on things at school and home. I am hoping that since I am about 13 weeks along now my energy level will increase at least a little bit too. This week we began talking about Thanksgiving, had our first disaster drill with the am class(thank goodness they did not have the alarm go off!), and had a germ stoppers presentation in the pm class.

1. These are a couple of activities from last week I didn't post. The morning class did some fall color block printing.

The pm class made alien headbands.



2. Lots of Turkey activities. We made some tissue paper turkeys on contact paper.
We discussed words associated with Thanksgiving.


We added clothespins (feathers) to the turkeys. This week we just practiced putting one color on the turkey.


We rolled balls of clay into balls to be the cherries in our cherry pie.


We made sensory turkeys (this was a 3 day project).


We made a pattern block turkey. The kids rolled the dice and added that pattern block to the turkey pattern.

4. We had a presentation about germs and how to properly wash our hands. She even had fake germs (white powder) that she put on the kids hands, had them wash their hands and then took a black light around to show how dirty their hands are. They all had to rewash their hands and she discussed the importance of washing.




 5. Last, but not least a freebie. You can get it at tpt.


Turkey, turkey What Do You See? Freebie

Freebie Fridays


Have a great weekend!



I have been meaning to post these freebies since the beginning of the school year I just didn't do it. So maybe this is something you can put away and save for next year. I already have a 2014-2015 folder on my desktop for things I would like to do, but haven't gotten to (my summer project).

Anyways, here are a few things I did do this year, but just have not posted.

I did not do this year, but my partner has and she said she really likes it because it helps to keep track of the students behavior and an easy communication with parents. However, she does find it challenging to record the students behavior by the end of the day.





I sent this out at the beginning of the year and it was very helpful to know some of the students favorite things and family members because some of my little ones I can't always understand what they are saying.

I hope you find these helpful. Better late than never! lol. Have a great week! I'm off to bed.
