Five for Friday

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for a little Five for Friday Fun.

This is my new favorite art project for rienforcing the concept of symmetry. This math lesson comes up during our artic/habitats unit - talk about PERFECT! It's quick, easy, and cute!

All you do is draw a 3 on the fold.
 Add a wing and a foot.
 Fold, press, and TA-DA! I like the one in the middle that looks angry.
 I have a new incentive this year.... "lunch with the teacher"! Instead of picking out a prize when they fill their incentive chart, they can choose a coupon to have lunch with me in our classroom. Today was a day they could redeem the coupons and I enjoyed the individualized time with two of my students. I learn so much about them when we can just talk and laugh over lunch. It's more of a treat for me :)

I received these beautiful flowers from a family this week. Spring is on it's way!

This has been the most popular sensory table so far this year - kinetic sand. It has the coolest feel and molds into any shape! While it may look like a pile of sand...to the untrained eye... it is actually the planet Mars according to my Kinders.


I introduce chapter books to my Kinders after December. I always start with 5 Cheesy Stories by Patsy Clairmont. It is an adorable book about a family of mice who live in a forgotten box of Christmas candy in a pantry. Each story follows one of the mice on an adventure and teaches a life lesson such as "you can't believe everything you hear".


  1. Hi there! Found you through the linky. I love the Penguins! Too cute! I need to tuck the idea away for symmetry next year!
