Winter writing, math notebooks, and MLK

It was a busy short week!  Short week because the kiddos have no school but we do....Professional Development. It's time for Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching.

After taking down all the holiday hoopla my bulletin boards were looking a little naked so we were on a mission to do craftivities- I mean writing work.

These "Oh no, What's in my cocoa?" craftivities writing projects by SunnyDays (can I say projects?!) are adorable.  They look so cute displayed!
I love these Interactive Math Notebooks by Blair Turner! The kiddos love them too.  It's a nice break from the 4 page per lesson math workbook but that's a whole 'nother post. 

We have been working hard learning about Martin Luther King this week with my MLK close Read

We read Snowmen at Night and brainstormed ideas on how our snowman could melt. We wrote about how we made a snowmen, where it was, and how it melted.

Our classroom mascot, Charlie has been very busy this week reading with kids, cuddling, and helping settle some of my kiddos who have had some emotional struggles this week.


  1. Charlie is adorable! I love that he has a bowl and a bed! Too cute! Enjoy your 3 day weekend!

    1. Thanks so much! I hope you have a great weekend too!
