It's a wonderful Friday ... no school and my first Five for Friday linkup with Doodle Bugs Teaching!
Next week our 3-5th graders start their FCAT state testing. So, this week we had a spirit week to get them pumped up! Even my Kinders got to participate! On Thursday we had a pep rally and dressed like rockstars since our school theme is "Rock n Roll" this year.
I have some pretty cute rockers!!
Even with our fun spirit days (Tuesday was "block out shades of meaning with your sunglasses"), we did manage to get some learning done! Learning with Mrs. Leeby has a fantastic pack for The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other Eric Carle stories. Since The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my all time favs we just had to include some of her activities throughout the week.
Check out Mrs. Leeby's full pack here!
We've been working hard on our sight words so I took advantage of the 4-day week to review, review, review! We had loads of fun making sight words rings from Whimsy Workshop Teaching! Although I kept finding rings all over the floor, we'll definitely do this again because it's such an exciting way to practice our words!

Mrs. Leeby and her amazing creativity was getting some love this week in our class. Our newest and most favorite math center has got to be part of her Snap Block Math pack! My kiddos were so excited to see these cards and then, oh my...create their own patterns with my blocks when they finished! Playing and learning all mixed together!
It's true what they say, April showers ...(hopefully bring May flowers)... we've been getting some rain action here in Florida. I guess that's why my April Showers Word Work Activities are appropriate for this time of year! We've been reviewing digraphs for the last couple of weeks and the kids really rocked this digraph sorting and recording activity!
