Five for Friday (March 7th)

It's been a while since I linked up. 
Life has been busy and I've been using IG to post updates about my class.

This week was a fun, but a busy one. We celebrated a certian Doc all week and embedded some doc related activities into our curriculum. We covered soil, goods and services, procedural writing, following oral and written multi-step directions, and time to the five minutes.

Here are 5 photos that sum up my week! Enjoy!
To start off our week we had Crazy Hat day on Monday. 
Most kids didn't bring hats so we made these by following multi-step oral directions. 
What are they working on? They're making puppets so when we wrote a "How To" this week they were able to rely on what they did to create their own how to writing. 
So we read a Dr. Seuss book story everyday and completed a following directions activity I created based on the story. I have most Dr. Seuss books, but I just love this APP and pressing auto-play. 
It's like magic. The kids are like moths to a flame and you can literally hear a pin drop. 

(Most stories were 99 cents in honor of Dr. Seuss' Birthday.) 
 One of our following directions activities was to create a Horton Hat. I just love that this cutie colored her ears rainbow. One of my written steps was to: Color the ears any color you choose.  
We are a no homework policy school, but from time to time we like to send home take home projects. We asked parents to help their child decorate a posterboard cutout as a community worker or whatever job their child would like to have when they grew up. 
The kiddies had to answer a questionairre about it too. 
I'm on Spring Break so this is how I rolled out Friday at 3:00 p.m.
Hope you all have an amazing week!
