Five for Friday

                   I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday

{1} Environmental Print

After looking at a few examples of environmental print, my kinders discovered that we could read already!  The next day they brought in their own examples and shared (read) them.  SO FUN!

...and then a game!

We played this spin and graph game to continue the fun of reading environmental print. The game is free from the link below:

I did modify a couple of pictures to be ones that were most familiar in our area.   I also discovered that Wikipedia has logos for just about everything that you can easily drag to your desktop.  SUPER FUN!  Thank you Mrs. Lirette!!!

{2} For all of you kindergarten teachers out there who are just starting after Labor Day, I'll be thinking about you:)

{3} Stick Together Like Glue

I really wanted to get a jump on teaching some neatness techniques for gluing.  I found these great songs with cute graphics here for free.

After we sang the songs I posted the pages on the wall near the art and writing center for a reminder to my kinders:). We also did this gluing practice printable which is also part of the printable set. Thank you Mrs. Miner!!!

{4}Back to School Night...
                  was Thursday at my school.  

I stole this great idea from:

Thank you Ms. Moran!!!

{5}My commuter
I don't always need all of the baskets, but this was just one of those days. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Room 10

So, this is what room 10 looked like exactly one year ago after moving in...
 I was lucky enough to inherit this beautiful (although you can't see it here:)) room with a wall of windows and high ceilings from my best teaching buddy when she retired.  My school is 50 years old and recently remodeled.   We have that bright airy feeling that I did not have in the new pre-fab constructed building that I was previously in.

... and this is what I walked into this year...
 Same room, but SO much better, right?  As I work, work, work I keep telling myself that I am way ahead of where I was a year ago.  But there is always SO much to do, isn't there?
