Five for Friday

We finished up our Poetry Packets just in time to start our “file folder reports,” next week.  I will have lots of pictures of that project next weekend!
Poetry book
My favorite are their limericks!  So fun to read! I had a few students write limericks about Duck Dynasty.  I was dying!
I joined #teachertalktuesday on Instagram for the first time on Tuesday!  Follow me!
One of my favorite parts of our day is our Morning Meeting!  Love to hear their news and learn new things through our question time.  It also is a great chance for my kiddos to practice being active listeners and taking turns talking!  Great conversation skills are being formed!
Morning Meeting
We started our human body unit in science.  This is one of my favorite end of the year projects.  Our life sized paper bodies are lining the hallway and as we learn about each body system we glue it in place!  So much fun!

I came across this on Pinterest this week.  Such a great reminder about being light in this world.  Trying to do my part in my little part of the world to instill kindness!
Happy Friday Everyone!
