Five for Friday

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.
#1---I am so glad I created this Parent-Teacher Conference packet.  It has been invaluable in helping me prepare for my conferences.  It includes anything and everything you could need for before, during, and after parent-teacher conferences.  Click on the picture to check it out in my little store.1
#2---We made cupcakes and birthday cards to say happy birthday to a certain famous author who has a March birthday.  015017
#3---We learned about the long o sounds spelled with oa and ow.  Check out our fun anchor chart:014
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.018
#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!
