Today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five For Friday where I share 5 random things about today or this past week. Click on the button above to read more Five For Friday posts.
1. I am a Southern Louisiana girl and today I had boiled crawfish for the first time this season (crawfish are only harvested a few months out the year). They were amazing! Click on the picture to visit a blog dedicated to crawfish cuisine in Louisiana.
|This was my serving tonight.|
2. We gave a puppy a home! This darling "weenie dog" (as my boys call him) is the newest addition to our family. He is sweet and a handful all at the same time.
4. Some of my students were working on simple addition this week. I have been using my Winter Wonderland Simple Addition set that I have available in my TpT store. Here are a few parts I have found most effective this past week. (I apologize for not having pictures of the activities in use-I'm not very good at remembering to snap pictures)
The sorting mats with addition cards has been a very popular center this week. It also comes with a recording sheet which helps me keep track of students who are still struggling in a time effective way.
This printable worked great for higher order thinking. I had students create their own story problems. You can grab your free copy of this printable by clicking the picture above and downloading from Google Docs. ***This freebie is not available in my TpT store-only to those who read this post.
This is a preview of the entire set for sale in my store. Click on the picture above for more information.
5. And finally I would like to share my Friday FREEBIE. Every Friday on my blog I give away a new FREEBIE. Here is the one I offered this week. The post is all about sight words and a great product that I am working on. I hope you enjoy. Click on the picture to head over to that post and get your copy of my Sight Word FREEBIE!
