I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. Here is what we were up to this week!

1. Decorating trees! We made ornaments and hung them up.

We also decorated a triangle and put them together to make a tree. 

2. Here are the Elf on the Shelf shenanigans happening in our house this week.

3. We made spin art lights in the salad spinner. 

4. We have been using From the Pond's Santa Sleigh Drop to practice counting out 1-10. 

5. We also started our bakery dramatic play. The kids have been loving this! They especially like the cash registers. You can find the dramatic play props here. 

Have a great weekend!

Here are some of the work boxes we have been up to:

You can find these pattern block mats at pre-k pages. 

You can find these here. 

These cookie sheet activities are great. You can use them as file folder activities too. You can find these here

This ABC mat that can be used in multiple ways is from Pocket Full of Kinders!

You can find these items in the Dollar Spot at Target. :)

You can find the stringing lights activities here. Great for fine motor too!

Workbasket Wednesday Linkup for Structured Work Systems and Independent Work Systems

We have objectives that the students are supposed to meet and that they are supposed to know about. In the past I have put them up on the board and not really referred to them again.  So this year to make it more meaningful for my little ones I have started using I can statements with visuals. I currently am using tacky to keep the pictures up on the charts, but you could also use velcro. Before we start table time or circle time, etc. I say we are going to... and show them the pictures. It gives them a visual of what we are going to do but also helps me make sure I am meeting all of my objectives. It has been fun to see because some of my kiddos has started to point to the picture when they are doing it. For example at circle time if they are singing they will point to the picture of singing or if we are doing calendar they will point to the picture of the calendar. I am glad that they are starting to make the connection that this is what they are doing during different times of the day.

Have a great Monday! :)
