There’s nothing better than the sound of the bell at the end of the day on a Friday. I usually can’t wait to get home so I can get my comfy clothes on and put my feet up (which is what I’m doing right now!)
My kids are all playing nicely, the hubs has his earphones in because he’s doing “course work” (AKA watching youtube videos while pretending to work)…hopefully this lasts long enough for me to write my blog post!
I’m linking up with Doodle Bugs to share 5 random things from my week. This was such a busy week I hardly even had time to take photos of anything but I do have some to share!
1. We added a little word work into our daily 5 mix! We now have all 5 activities up and running and my first and second graders are so great! I’ve never had a class that is this quiet. Even in gym I can’t get a rise out of them. They are the quietest little dodge ball players ever!
Their favorite word work activity is sitting with the keyboard and typing out the words on our word cards.
2. For some reason I have a ton of kids this year who just don’t have ideas for their writing. This has become our main focus now. I have a few kids who won’t even write a word let alone a sentence!
I did this really fun activity with them this week to help (hopefully) spark some ideas for them.
I put out magazines and flyers and had the kids make a collage of things that they liked or things that inspired them. They really got into it! One student cut out a green pillow and said the green in the pillow inspired them to want to write about aliens. I laughed at the one in the picture below….yup, Friday inspires me too!
