Five for Friday {Linky Party.. Friday, April 29th}

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.


We had a program Tuesday morning and my class were toy soldiers. We made the simplest costumes EVER! They were asked to wear solid red shirt and blue jeans. We pinned a white x on their shirts with crepe paper. {easy peasy!}. Then, they all brought a baseball cap and we used it as a base for a tall solider's hat. Cut out a shiny gold star and wrapped a strip of blue crepe paper around a large piece of red construction paper. 

We practiced last week during our center time so I carried our bear centers over into this week since they were prepped and ready to go!

These are all found in my Bear Unit. .. which got a HUGE makeover a few weeks ago. I still need to blog about all the new stuff I added to the unit. You can download the preview to see more if you are interested.

We did move on to insects this week.

Each year my students LOVE LOVE LOVE Fly Guy! Such a fun book!

Our caterpillars came in this week too. 

And, if you need a great fiction picture book about raising caterpillars this one is perfect!

And, I seriously DO NOT know how this has happened so fast!! I took this picture on Monday so I had to edit it to show today's number. 13 days left! Crazy! This year has flown by!

And, just as always I adore a Friday! This has been a busy, crazy week! 
I am ready for a little down time before tackling another week.

  5. The boilerplate academy amateur accepting this year will be acquiescent for repaying amateur loans anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 or more. One of the best important cyberbanking decisions these graduates will achieve is how they pay ashamed their loans. Payday Loans San-diego
