5 for Friday

Friday, May 3, 2013
Gotta love 5 for Friday!!!  It was such a fun week.  We studied one of my favorite phonics skills /ar/...so of course we had our pirate hooks ready to go and wore them on our way home.

We also did a little more work on our rainforest habitat...here is an adorable rainforest monkey...not in my unit but super cute!
We also did a little celebrating of Cinco de Mayo today...some tortilla chips, guacamole and fun activities...
These cracked me up...what they would do if they ate a hot pepper...

My sweet ex student was a mystery reader today...so much fun!
Lastly we tried to wrap up our 'people' habitats.  Every child is part of one of our habitats for open house...I'm not quite finished with this part yet.  Some are inuit people, desert people, safari people, scuba divers - I think that's it.  Here's one of our cute swimmer girls.  Hope your week was fun too...what were you up?  Link on up and share over at Doodle Bugs.

  3. Awwwww, when I read your cutie Five for Friday I want to be a lower elementary teacher...for a second! :O)

    How sweet that you had an ex student come read!!! That is so wonderful! You get to see them grow! By 4th grade they are ready to be 5th graders and in 5th they are too cool to really show you any love! :O( But, I love my 4th graders and I love when they want to read to their younger grade teachers!!

    Happy weekend!
