Five For Friday {On Saturday, Of Course}

If you have been a follower for any amount of time, you may know that I love linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five For Friday.  You also know that I am usually a smidge late when doing so. That's ok though.  Better late than never!

Last week I read Apple Trouble! to my students.  When we were finished, we talked about other things that the hedgehog could get stuck in his quills.  I then did a directed drawing of the hedgehog with my students.   Before we colored our pictures, we drew a picture of something that could have gotten stuck on hedgehog's back.  The pictures turned out so cute!



On Thursday, we made these super cute apples.  Thanks Michelle for the freebie!



I am in love with my new Fall bulletin board!  For the tree craft, students were given a 3 x 12 piece of brown paper.  They folded the paper and cut it half.  The students then cut one of those pieces into three parts.  Then, they glued the uncut piece to represent the the trunk onto a white piece of paper and glued the three cut pieces to represent the branches of the tree.  The students finally used a q-tip and paint to make leaves on the tree and ground.  For the leaves, I cut out leaf frames on my Silhouette and stapled the frames to white construction paper.  Students used their thumbs to paint inside the frame.  When the paint dried, I cut around the edges of the leaves. 



I was looking for a fun way to review rhyming words, and I couldn't quite find what I was looking for.  So what does a teacher do when they can't find what they are looking for?  Why, make it of course.  I made a Rhyming Bingo game for my students to play that they just love!  On the first day, they colored the pictures, and then picked sixteen pictures to be on their board.   The next day, we played many games of Rhyming Bingo.  They loved shouting out "Bingo!".  If you are wanting to Rhyming Bingo with your students, it is a freebie in my Teachers Pay Teachers store



On a very noneducational note, I bought a new car last week!  I hate the car buying process with a passion, but I am loving having my new car {You should read my husband's Yelp review.  It's not pretty.  haha}  I got a 2015 Mazda CX-5.  It has a lot of bells and whistles that are new to me.  Loving the backup camera and the blind spot thingamajig (trust me - real word) on the side mirrors.  Last Sunday, I was driving somewhere and it beeped at me.  I told my husband it beeped at me for no reason, and he said there had to be a reason.  lol  Guess I should check out the manual.  :)


Thanks for joining me for my Five For Friday {On Saturday}!  Have a great rest of the weekend!
