Angry Birds, Pronouns and Keeping My Boys Engaged...

Usually I'm all about my weekly reading theme matching all of my daily 5 activities, but Alexander Graham Bell just wasn't doing it.  Mainly because it's so close to the end of the year, sorry Alexander!


So, to keep my friendly little boys "on task"  I added this little pronoun sort into daily 5 this week, and guess what?  Big hit!  Even my writers who need me sitting with them usually were so motivated to write all of the steps to playing angry birds.  Don't you just love when this happens???!!!  

And with this being teacher appreciation week, here's my gift to you...  Hopefully, you'll have a little extra engagement in your classroom too!

  And here are a few of the super sweet gifts that have come in from students this week, darling huh? :)


Activities from last week...first grade inventors hard at work (thanks First Grade Parade).



Fun with fractions (thanks to Crazy for First Grade , Mrs. Bainbridge, The First Grade Parade and Mrs. Schmelzer's) for their fun ideas!






Hoping you have a terrific teacher appreciation week!
