Five for Friday!! A look at my week



Hi all. I have been wanting to blog all week but I just never can find the energy at the moment. But here I am, sharing a snap shot and linking up

1. How sweet is this clip art? I bought a BUNCH of stuff from Kari Bolt during the last sale and made this fun little subtraction pack for little learners. An addition pack will be coming soon too! Click HERE to visit her Facebook page and HERE to find this pack on TPT


2. It was 'i' week this week so we made these headbands in our fine motor/oral language groups. It only took them about 15 minutes to cut, colour and assemble so it was a great activity! I will be posting the full set of these basic alphabet bands in my TPT store over the weekend. Make sure you like my FB page so you will know when they are listed (I might even be keen to give one or two away!)

3. Another activity from our groups this week was shaving cream writing. It was our first time trying this and we will definitely do it again (just not sure how much 'writing' went on as we were too busy giggling about how the shaving cream felt)
4. One last activity from groups - GEOBOARDS. I bought a geo board pack quite a long time ago and thought this was a great time to use it. The shapes were quite challenging for my Kinders but they had lots of fun. Pack from First Grade Blue Skies


5. This one is from last Friday (I can still include it can't I?) We have been trying to use different craft/art techniques each week on Friday Funday - yes it is a thing in our class. These cute "crocodiles" came from the ever talented Mel From the Pond. We painted the bodies the day before, then cut the next day, did our paper accordian folding (which is a lot harder than it looks for a 5 year old lol) and did the teeth. I actually glued the template onto foil so the teeth would look shiny :) Funny story though, when I took the paper home to glue on, I discovered I only had purple foil. Add a googly eye and it was done! Click HERE to go and look at it in Mel's TPT store. And HERE is a blog post from Mel showcasing some of the awesome things you can make from this pack.

You made it to the end! Great! I am going to give away one of my Subtraction Task Cards for Little Learners (seen above). Just leave a comment with something you did in class this week (dont forget your email address). I will pick a random winner on Sunday (Syd time)

AND

The generous Mel of From the Pond has kindly offered to give away one of her Craft Projects - 26 Fold and Create Paper crafts. Go and show her some love on her BLOG or TPT store

  1. Hey Brooke,

    Your newest pack is so cute, definitely love that clipart. Mmmm well as you know I don’t have a class, but with the kids I tutored this week we spent quite a bit of time looking at 2 and 3 syllable words. We made some word puzzles, built the words and then practised writing these words. We then used these words to make silly sentences.

    Cheers
    Mel

  3. I love the 'Cat-astrophe' packs - they look amazing! I also love how you give them example pictures to make with the geoboards - I might try that too.
    A highlight of this week was doing an experiment to see which object rolled the furthest. We were rolling our shoes, pencils, books, balls, blocks. It was so much fun. We even measured each roll!

  4. You sure do a lot of fun hands on things in your classroom. Your students are so lucky to have you! I love using shaving cream, never thought to do it on a small tray like that instead of right on the tables or desk! Super idea!!! tigermagic@bellsouth.net
