Five for Friday

It has been awhile since I have linked up!

 The diagnosis: STREP!  Ugh!  I am finally feeling a little better!


I created this fun syllable game during my prep one day.  In honor of "The Big Game", I cut out footballs and wrote words on each one.  Then I made goal posts.  I put numbers on each one.  We went around the circle picking a football, reading the word, and counting the syllables.  We would put the football by the correct number and cheer after each turn.
If I had to change one thing about this activity, I would of made more goal posts and put one number on each number!


We are doing our FOSS Fabric unit in science.  Here we are weaving.  Simple and so engaging! :)


I posted this on my Instagram.  We are in our measuring unit and we all traced our shoes to measure. 


I think I posted this on my Facebook or Instagram last week, but wanted to share it here!  I made a this sheet and had my kiddos cut out buttons to create a addition equation.  This little one got really into it :)

What were you up to this week?!
Stop by tomorrow for a fun little giveaway! :)

  1. Kimberly, your weaving is so genius! I've always resorted to paper because using one long string always got tangled, leading to more management issues than I had energy for. I never thought to keep the wool in shorter bits! Thank you!!

    PS: Feel better! I'm home sick today with the same thing. Boo!

  2. I didn't even know there was a FOSS fabric kit. That weaving looks awesome! I love the Balance and Motion.

  3. I love that you had your students measuring their shoes. Real world application! Now if only they could do fractions and figure out how to convert that number to shoe size :)

  4. Great to know about linky party from your blog post. That’s quite interesting that students are measuring their shoes on a paper. These types of games are also played in Phoenix pre-k, and every kid enjoy there. Well, you have shared great info here.
