We had a program Tuesday morning and my class were toy soldiers. We made the simplest costumes EVER! They were asked to wear solid red shirt and blue jeans. We pinned a white x on their shirts with crepe paper. {easy peasy!}. Then, they all brought a baseball cap and we used it as a base for a tall solider's hat. Cut out a shiny gold star and wrapped a strip of blue crepe paper around a large piece of red construction paper. 



We practiced last week during our center time so I carried our bear centers over into this week since they were prepped and ready to go!

 
{calendar skills}

{pick the greatest number}

{counting by 5's}

These are all found in my Bear Unit. .. which got a HUGE makeover a few weeks ago. I still need to blog about all the new stuff I added to the unit. You can download the preview to see more if you are interested.


We did move on to insects this week.

Each year my students LOVE LOVE LOVE Fly Guy! Such a fun book!

Our caterpillars came in this week too. 



And, if you need a great fiction picture book about raising caterpillars this one is perfect!


And, I seriously DO NOT know how this has happened so fast!! I took this picture on Monday so I had to edit it to show today's number. 13 days left! Crazy! This year has flown by!



And, just as always I adore a Friday! This has been a busy, crazy week! 
I am ready for a little down time before tackling another week.

Happy Tax Day.. let's cry and move on! And, that's all I am going to say on that....

Last week was all about dinosaurs.. and we still have a few things "hanging " around .. including our dino posters AND

The table full of toy dinos is still there. Including this T-Rex with a puppy in its mouth! This little dog was found and no one claimed it. {When does that EVER happen?!?!} So, I said, " Put it over  by the dinosaurs." And, then this happened.






  We moved on to Bears this week. Our weekly centers are all included in my Bears Math Centers
They had a true/false math sort
telling time
missing addends
ordering numbers {not shown}

I have been working all week on updating this unit and I have added TONS to it. It has doubled in size and I will be revising the file in my store hopefully this weekend. Now, is the time to purchase it if you are interested. The price will go up a little after I revise and update the file.


We have been reading different versions of the Goldilocks this week. I have a few other ones that are not pictured.. but the one of the right is a new one that we LOVED!
You can find it on Amazon HERE
I also ordered several others by this same author
They are all awesome!


We also did a few activities that are included in my Three Bears Book Companion.  

And, other than taxes This has DEFINITELY has been thebiggest event of my week. I FINALLY caved and ordered a new phone. I was still using my iphone 4s from 2011 so it was waaaay past time.

 Last Sunday, my phone started acting crazy. So, I ordered a new one. And would you believe it started working just fine right after I placed the order?
But, I knew I was on borrowed time so I went ahead and upgraded. And, also ordered 6 new cords. 

How many cords do you have? I was so used to  my old phone that died every hour so I kept chargers literally everywhere. I don't know how to act with a phone that stays charged all day. But, I have plenty of cords around ready to charge if needed.


I would love for you to post your Five for Friday and link up below.

Dino Week 2 has been fun! I seriously have the cutest little dino expert in my room this year. Like.. he know more than google. He has enjoyed sharing his knowledge {and correcting mine! HA!} Just imagine a pint size, curly red headed, full of life, 6 year old. I love the kid to death!


We made these dinosaurs this week. The other half of them are inside on another bulletin board. This is my hall bulletin board. 
{That rainbow paper cloud is going strong since August.. one more moth for it to survive!}


This dinosaur craft is included in my Dino Unit.


We also did a little number stamping this week. This was one of our math centers. The stamping paper {and an easier version} is included in my dino unit too.



We also did these even and odd sorting cards. 
You can download these free HERE!


Next week is all about Bears!
Both sets of cards above are from this Bear Math Centers Unit.
And we will be reading several different versions of The Three Bears!
