5 for Friday

Hi!  I am touching base {finally}with a Five for Friday!  I don't have a whole lot to share, as I've been out of town and don't have many pictures, but nonetheless, here we go!

We had a busy week last week with it being right before our Thanksgiving break.  Our team decided to do Thanksgiving rotations and have different activities for our kids in each of our rooms.  I did the story of the First Thanksgiving.  I made Thanksgiving Story Bracelets from Fluttering Through First Grade {it's a free download}.  The kids LOVED their bracelets!  We were so short on time, I forgot to snap a picture of the finished product but here is the worksheet that they used as a guide.

My teammate had a cute turkey craft in her room!  Look how great these turned out!

In another classroom, the kids played "Pilgrim Games" from my "Pilgrim Day" pack.

In the fourth classroom, the teacher had the kids make a turkey treat with Oreo cookies, much like the one shown below!  Photo from The Jenny Evolution.

We are at my mother-in-laws house and have been helping her prepare for her upcoming move. We've sorted through boxes to help her condense and get rid of things.  We came across my husband's trolls from the 80's!!!!  Perfect timing with the movie just releasing, right?!!?  Love these!

I've shared with you before that I am a Stella and Dot stylist on the side.  I love accessories and it's so much fun styling women!  I wanted to let you know that in honor of Black Friday, we are having a BIG SALE!!!!!!!  If you need a little something for your child's teacher {or yourself!!}, be sure to check out THIS LINK.  There are necklaces for just $16.  Another option is to send/give a gift card!  

This look below is one of my absolute favorites AND the necklace is on sale!!!!!!!!!!  Find the necklace HERE and the scarf  HERE.

In one of my Guided Reading groups, where two of my little ones are just learning to read, we've been practicing cvc words.  We use the strips from my Guided Reading Resources pack and my CvC Flashcards.  It's great practice.  I give them each a different word so they can work side by side without copying one another.  See a video of this in action below!  *I've linked the BINGO chips below in case you want to grab some for your classroom.  They are perfect for all sorts of games!


In another group, we've been working on using our reading strategies.  Each time we complete a book, the kids place it into their book baggie.  At the start of group every day, we warm up with a warm read of a book we've previously read.  The kids get to choose which one they want to read. This helps them practice fluency.  I've linked the bags below in case you want to grab some!!


Check out my Best-Selling, First Grade Guided Reading Bundles below.  *First Grade & Kindergarten available!

And finally I will leave you with a picture of this cute display we saw at an outdoor mall yesterday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Is the reading poster or book mark available by itself or is it part of a bundle?
