Five for Friday (Linky Party)

Hi Sisters,
Today I am linking up with the lovely Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five For Friday weekly linky party.  This week felt like it flew by! 
Lights, Camera, ACTION! Our class rolled out the red carpet this week with Lyndsey's, from A Year of Many Firsts, Hollywood themed Verb Unit. At the beginning of the week, we met two celebrities, Vicky Verb and Vince Verb.  In stations this week they had auditions, where they acted out the verb on the camera.  They got to read scripts & act them out, toured the Walk of Fame, where they found the verb in a sentence on each star around the classroom, and did a Verb snapshots, where they went around the classroom to find verbs.  Yesterday they wrote their own movie! Thanks Lyndsey for a jam packed unit on verbs!  You can check this packet out by clicking here.
October is here so I was excited to bring out the new QR Codes for our listening station this week.  My kiddos just love this station and it truly has made the Daily 5 rotations run so much smoother.  My students just choose a story, scan the QR code, and press play.  You can check these out by clicking here.
Words cannot describe how much I love this Intervention Binder.  I started it this week and it has simplified my life so much and I know that it will help my students that struggle to read!  This will also be a great way to track my kiddos progress this year.  Thank you Mrs. Decarbo for this amazing resource!
We have been doing Work on Writing in our classroom since I started teaching, but I was obsessed when I found Melissa's display last spring.  I don't have a lot of wall space in my classroom, but this little area seemed like the perfect spot.  Before the anchor charts were displayed I did a mini lesson.  This week I was able to complete it so my students can use the anchor charts as a reference for when they are writing.  You can check this packet out here.
It was picture day this week! The kiddos were super excited.

  1. I love, LOVE the QR codes and I am sad that I do not have iPads this year! Long story short, due to overcrowding my classroom is actually housed at our district office right now, so I am not in the same building (5 miles away actually) as the rest of the school that I belong to. So I am not on the iPad rotation for this year. But next year I should be! I am going to show them to my partner teacher at the school though - I think she would love them too! I really like how they are through a safe site so the kids don't see the ads. I do a lot with youtube and hate the ads!! I am always having to minimize my big screen and turn down the volume to wait them out if we are doing a whole group story or brain break.
