Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you have all had a wonderful week. This week was our first full week of school. I'm excited to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.
It has been a busy week in fourth grade. We fully embraced Reading Workshop this week.
|This little one likes to sit between my Elmo cart, desk, and bookshelf!|
We also wrote our first two mini-pieces in Writing Workshop. The first was an I Am poem.
Then we found Monster's in our Classroom (click the link to read when I blogged about this activity over the summer.) I love doing this activity with my kiddos at the start of the year. It is such a fun way to teach them how to be descriptive.
I'm also excited to share that one of my blogging friends is holding a 100 Follower Giveaway! Gary from Scrappy Guy Designs is also holding a linky to share.
I remember when I had 100 followers. It was in April. I had been blogging for about two months when I hit the "magic" 100 followers! I couldn't believe that there were 100 people that wanted to read about what I was doing in my classroom. I remember the first thing I did was contact Classroom Friendly Supplies to receive my free sharpener to review. (I am still in love with that sharpener!)
What have you been up to this week? Happy weekend everyone!
