Five for Friday {Linky Party.. October 28th}

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.


If you read my FFF last week you saw we had been working on counting coins! We are still hard at work and I backed up and did some more practice on recognition this week. Goodness.. those nickels and dimes are hard for some of my little friends.

I shared this Room on the Broom free coloring sheet last week. My kids did these after they watched the movie last Friday while I was gone. It was a perfect Halloween treat. We turned the coloring sheets into a little contest. The winners are hanging outside in the hallway by our classroom door.

I got this Classroom Data Tracking book from Carson Dellosa this week. If you keep data records this is a great book. It makes proving your students growth easy and manageable. It also has some good options for involving students in their own data tracking.  I love that it is all in one book and easy to use. Makes this chore a little less work and time consuming for sure!

I also got this Paired Passages book that I will be putting to use with some of my higher level readers. It has three different pairings (1) fiction and nonfiction (2) nonfiction and nonfiction (3) fiction and fiction. I am so excited to have some more nonfiction options available! The questions are different formats so my students can practice a variety of ways to answer. Multiple choice, true and false and even short answer.

A friend of mine told me about Jet.com. Seriously.. go NOW and check it out. I am in no way affiliated with them! I just fell in love. The prices are very comparable and shipping is free over $35 and was super fast. And, the best part. I ordered from my phone in bed! 
You can use coupon code triple15 on your first three orders for 15% off. 
That just sweetened the deal even more!

  1. I loved the money sorting activity. I know money is not part of CC however kids struggle with it so much I think it is important to do a little bit each month. Room on a Broom one of my favorite Halloween books. Thanks for sharing the freebie.

  2. Sue, you wrote exactly what I wanted to write! :))
    We'll be talking about money next month, so that's the perfect activity for my group.
    I love Room on the Broom. ;)

  3. I love the coin sorting activity! Second graders do have to work with money and solve problems involving coins and skip-counting. This is a great activity for my kids who struggle with coin identification. Thanks for sharing!
