We started the week of like most teachers did, with penguins. We will be continuing with penguins next week before we move onto Arctic animals.
We had fun with some other birds as well, Angry Birds!! My students loved this writing project/craftivity. I had them describe what their Angry Bird looked like, why they were angry, and how to make their Angry Bird happy again. Some of their stories were really cute. You can find a link to the craftivity HERE.
My students started working with geoboards this week. Look how well they work together and help one another! I have the sweetest class ever (in my opinion ^_^ )
We also started reading Scholastic News, another Donors Choose project. The students are enjoying Scholastic News so much. I can't believe I have waited this long to get it for my students.
We ended the week with yet again another Donors Choose project. As you can see on the right we got 9 puzzles as well as some picture books. I wanted a quick and easy way to do Fun Friday because I am not a huge fan of Fun Friday. I love giving my students time to have fun and I like the little down time I'm able to get to clean my room before the weekend. Puzzles were the perfect thing. I already had one box bent, so I'm going to have to find an even easier storage option for these puzzles.
I'm linking up over at a few places this week...
