Five for Friday & a GIVEAWAY!!

It's been another crazy busy week!!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs to catch you up on my week! :)


Turkeys in disguise!!  This is one of my favorite, favorite projects!!  I give it to the kids to take home and they always come back with so many great lookin' turkeys!! :)

 We learned magic e and long a this week!!!  
I used my magical wand and cape while teaching it. :)
I had the kids spell short vowel words for me.
Then I'd swirl around with my cape and wand, add a silent e, and make it say long a. 
 It was magical. 

But magic e is super tricky! 
 It makes the kids want to make all a's long a!  

After teaching magic e, one of the kids said, "Wow! That was a good show!"

Why, thank you, thank very much.  

Deirdre over at A Burst of First made this fabulous book!!!
My kids had a blast making it.
I plan on having it out for Parent-Teacher Conferences this week!

One my parents came in yesterday to teach the class a little bit about sign language.  
I forgot to take pictures, but it was amazing.
The kids had so much fun. 
 We learned all kinds of fun signs and used them all day!!
