Five for Friday ~ Saturday

It's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for their great Five for Friday linky party. I didn't link up yesterday because Isabella spent the night. She loves to spend the night at Mimi & Papa's house! We had so much fun. Everything you hear about how wonderful grandchildren is true! They are the best.

We had a fun presentation this week about animals in winter.  A woman who works at a local county park came to our classroom to discuss what animals do in winter.  Even though it's March, this eternal winter we are experiencing made this presentation seem timely!  I was happy to hear how much my Kinders remembered about hibernation ~ we learned about it way back in January!

We worked on comparing numbers this week.  The kiddos had fun using dice in Gerber baby food containers to determine their numbers.  I printed some cupcakes (from My Cute Graphics) & they put clear counter "sprinkles" onto them.  Whoever had the most sprinkles won the round.  This was a super easy activity to put together, but they had fun with it!

Hortons!  We made these cute elephants after watching Horton Hears a Who this week.  The three kindergarten classrooms took turns hosting a movie showing.  It took four days to see the movie in its entirety, but the kids had fun visiting their neighbors. 

Of course, no Dr. Seuss week would be complete without a Cat in the Hat craft.  This year we created this cute My Day With the Cat craftivity.  First, the kiddos wrote about what they would do if they got to spend the day with the cat.  On Friday we put together cute cats.  They are now hanging on our hallway bulletin board.  I am so pleased with the writing my kids have done this year!  And, they really rock with phonemic spelling!  (Thank you PTO for getting us Jolly Phonics!)

I finally finished the math portion of my Animal products & put together a bundled package.  It is on sale this week.  Check it out HERE!


  1. The writing for Cat in the Hat is incredible. Did they complete it in one day? We're lucky to get two sentences written!! I'm very impressed! I love your blog!!

    1. Thanks! We read the book and brain stormed ideas on Monday & they wrote on Tuesday. The craft was done on Friday. This was the only example I took a picture of, but there were lots of other great stories. I have some really good writers this year! :)
      Thanks for visiting!

  2. The Horton's are awesome!! And the maths game look great - I might have to give it a try with my kids.
