Five for Friday {Linky Party.. November 6th}


Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week and on your blog. Then, you come back and link your blog post up at the bottom of this post in the linky tool. Grab the button above and link back to this post on your blog.



Hellllooooo November!

After the craziness of last week and all the Halloween fun I was MORE than ready to pack up the candy corn, spiders and jack-o-lanterns and trade them in for turkeys, Pilgrims and Indians! We welcomed November with these printables from my Months of the Year Unit. A favorite of mine each month!



Another activity we do each month is to spell the month of the year. This can be found in my Thanksgiving Centers and Activities Unit.




We also made these super simple scrapbooking paper turkeys. {and my paper cloud is still holding strong!!}

I got these fun hands-on cut out pieces from Carson Dellosa and wanted to share them with you! I know you have seen Mr. Gallon Man- but these are cut out pieces that students can use to make the Gallon man on a table or the floor. There are 8 sets of pieces included in a set. I LOVE that I could pair my students up and they each had their own set to put together as we walked through making Mr. Gallon. And, they are a STEAL at $6.00. I laminated my pieces and put each set in a separate ziplock bag. They make practicing and learning liquid measurement just a little bit more fun!

You can find them here….Carson Dellosa Gallon Man Cut Outs



And, while I am sharing the Mr. Gallon Man I also want to tell you about this good resource.

If you need some differentiated reading passages with questions this is a great option.

Each passage has three different levels- and the levels are marked with these little dots at the bottom. Then, there is a comprehension page for each passage.


Makes planning a breeze! And, it includes a handy Common Core chart at the front of the book.
