I need it to slow down because this week we have a Spring Open house! Parents and kids get to come back and check out everything we've been doing all year. This year is different because we switch kiddos for Reading groups and Math groups. I'm finding it challenging to balance the "showcase" of work for each of my groups! (Cause I also have that homeroom who I teach content to!) I know that everything will be fine and parents will just love seeing their most prized possession's work and progress :)
I thought I'd share a few pics of my room/things from last week :) Keep reading for a freebie! :)
This is how I started organizing my literature circles/book groups. Each group has a certain color that matches the lanyard around the name cards. The packets are in different orders for each group member, so that they always know what job is theirs and which is coming up. They keep their folders and books in their book holders.... I need a better name for those! (I found them at Target a few months ago and just had to have them.... even at $1 a piece! Not a bargain, but they matched my room perfectly and they have been VERY useful.)
Now to the freebie-for today anyway. I have another one, but I'll have to post it tomorrow. I'm just running out of time!!!! We are learning all about animals. This is just a quick and easy habitat flip book that I created for the kids to write facts and draw pictures of the habitats that we study. We discuss desert, ocean and forest. We do talk about others, but for the sake of time and to know if they understand what a habitat is, those are what we look for. Look at what the cuties did!

Click on any of the pictures above to download a copy for yourself! Copy it double sided, as it is (the way it prints out) and you'll be set to go!
I have finished my Math AND literacy Beach themed Common Core games/centers! You can check them out by clicking on the pictures below! I'm in the process of finishing up the "preview" for each and will upload that within a day or 2.... (though, my goal is to do it tonight!)
I plan on having another post this week that will have some fact and opinion worksheets related to animals! Make sure to follow me so you don't miss out! My kids are in the process of using it now, to make sure there are no "bugs" :) I set a new personal goal for my blog-we'll see if I can reach my goal! Thanks for all the love, bloggy friends! Again, I never expected any of this!!!!!!
