Five for Friday... on Saturday

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for today's Five for Friday. It was a busy week at school celebrating Read Across America week and Dr. Seuss' birthday.

1. On Tuesday we had hockey players from our local team come read to our students.  The kiddos loved it!

2. On Thursday we dropped everything to read.  After the reading fairy floated into our room we dropped what we were doing and headed out into the hall with the rest of the school to read.  The local news even showed up to feature our event on the evening news!
(Yes, my school is only one hallway and this is the entire student body!)

3. I did my 'Where do readers read?' lesson that I've blogged about before.  It went really well and my students were engaged throughout the entire lesson.  I did this activity this week since we're studying Dr. Seuss, but I think I'm going to move this lesson to the beginning of the year in the future.

4. On Friday we read Dr. Seuss' 'Green Eggs and Ham' and had ourselves a little green breakfast!  Aside from the 3 kids who absolutely refused to even try it they all loved it... they always do.  We graphed our results after eating.  Since it was also pajama/stuffed animal today we cozied up all around the room to read for awhile.

5. We've got our data boards up and running!  One board is for DRA Reading Levels.  The other board is for results from our state's diagnostic assessments.  It's a great visual for seeing where our students are academically and will be a useful discussion tool during our meetings.



That was my week.  Next week I'm looking forward to putting a few new TPT purchases to use in my classroom.  I'll let you know how it goes!

  4. Clients need to recall that in-house financing merchants fund specifically and don't require outside banks which is incredible since this permits them to favor clients for financing without checking FICO ratings by any means. Cash Advance
