Well, it was quite a week! We had a *Snow Day* Wednesday for what was predicted to be over a foot of snow, but what amounted to maybe six inches. The snow was pretty much melted by noon and then it rained for a little while. So I enjoyed an extra day off with my little guy and spent some time working on report cards & drinking lattes.
Speaking of report cards, in my district we do them SIX times a year. Yes, six. I feel like I am constantly doing report cards. We will be handing them out next week at our spring parent teacher conference. And here is the start of my Five for Friday.
#2---We made cupcakes and birthday cards to say happy birthday to a certain famous author who has a March birthday.
#3---We learned about the long o sounds spelled with oa and ow. Check out our fun anchor chart:
My kiddos really loved these two videos as a part of our oa and ow learning.
#4---Our sparkly shamrocks! These were created from an idea featured in an old issue of The Mailbox magazine. It’s a simple craft using small paper plates, gold glitter, green paint, and a craft stick. I’m planning on “planting” them in green floral foam next week to display during parent-teacher conferences.
#5---Cupcakes! Our pocket chart center this week is one of my favorites: Cupcake Compound Words. Check it out in my store!
Have a great weekend!
