Five for Friday & Flashback Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Five for Friday and Teaching Maddeness Flashback Friday.

Here is the review of my week:

This past week was a short one. We were on spring break the week before and we had Monday off.

The kids colored Easter eggs, made bunny hats and had a sight word Easter egg hunt in the classroom . We also read There was an Old Lady that Swallowed a Chick. We completed a sequencing activity and chick craft.

We are headed to a ranch for a field trip on Monday. We spent the rest of the week learning about ranch animals. We learned the difference between a ranch and a farm. We will see emus on our field trip, so we decided to make an emu craft.

I had 4-5 kids absent each day this past week, so I didn't want to start place value without them. We decided to review addition and subtraction and other math concepts we learned throughout the year. Students chose math centers to review the concepts we reviewed.

I finished off my Friday by finally completing my sight word medal units..well almost- I am still working on the first grade sight words unit. Check them out here (click on each picture):


  1. I love your Easter activities!

  2. My mom and I teach in the same school too...only she teaches in our high school building ( math) and I teach 2nd grade. She graduated with her masters when I graduated with my bachelors degree from the same University. It was fun. :)

  3. Thanks Liz! Jean...I love teaching in the same school as my mom. We even drive together some days. I love when my Kindergarteners go to Second grade and some of them get my mom as a teacher. I often buddy up with her class for fun projects as well.
