Five For Friday Dec 6

This week has flown by!  I am hoping that the next two weeks before Christmas vacation will go just as quickly.  We have a lot to do in the next few weeks, so I am sure it will! And.. because it is Friday, it is time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!


We have been doing a lot of cooperative learning in class lately and the kids are loving it!  It has really allowed me to work with more students, and I feel like my kids are learning even more as they explain what they are learning to their peers.  They have loved both being the coach and the coached.

Love Notes - Don't you just love the little love notes your students leave you?  This was at my desk this week.

I love birthdays in our class!  I get to embarrass honor them with the lovely birthday hat and a smencil!

Our district purchased these National Geographic Ladders books, and the kids have been loving them - they love non-fiction!  We learned about the 7 summits this week.  I'm not sure I could make a trek up any of the mountains, but a few of my kiddos are sure they could!

It is also time for my Teachers Pay Teachers Giveaway!  Each month I give away a $25 Gift Certificate for Teachers Pay Teachers just for following!  Enter below!

  1. I love your cooperative learning! I have several children who just jump in and coach a peer when I can't get around the room quickly enough! Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Kelly,
    I'm so glad you commented on my blog post today because it brought me over to yours! Those National Geographic books look great- my students LOVE non fiction too, so I might just have to look into those texts. Just entered your giveaway too-- what a great idea!
