Five for Friday!! :)

I'm linking up with Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching to share with y'all 5 randoms from the week. Join in the fun here!
We are having a BALL with our fairy tales unit. We've been learning a lot and reading many different fairy tales. We started the unit off by reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I found the CUTEST craft ever from the Glyph Girls. You can find it here. Didn't they turn out precious??? I plan on changing the title to Goldilocks and the four bears, because as you can see, we only have four boys in our room!

We also read The Little Red Hen and did a little writing activity with it. We decided if we would help the little red hen, which I thought everyone would say "yes, of course", but we had a few that refused to help. I absolutely LOVE this little girl's response as to why she would not help the little red hen.
How creative is that??? Love it!


The weekly phonics pack fits in perfectly with our fairy tales theme! This phonics pack features the suffixes -ly and -ful.

Since April is National Poetry Month, I decided to take a day off from fairy tales and learn a little about poetry. We did this adorable activity that I saw from the always fabulous Amy Lemons. I LOVE activities that have self portraits, so this one was right up my alley! I first gave the kids a blank piece of paper to draw themselves, but a few were having trouble, so I supplied them with a self portrait outline to use if needed. I love the way they turned out!

Check our the accessories! LOVE!! :)

Aren't these shoes cute??

I'm becoming obsessed with instagram, y'all. Follow me if you're like me and obsessed too! :)

Happy weekend!! :)
