Currently and Five for Friday!

It's Friday! And February 1st! Time for Farley's Currently! Also time for another Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

So my pet peeve... I can't stand when kids touch things they shouldn't be! Things on my desk... the daily schedule cards... stuff in someone else's desk... Just don't do it!! I'm not a big stickler about things in the room, but there are certain things you just don't need to be touching!! Anywho, enough about that! Here we go with my weekly randoms...

1. Here's one of my sweeties working on her calendar book. Each day we do calendar, we just do the work in pencil. Then on the last day of the month we colour the days of the month in our monthly pattern and answer the questions about how many days, how many school days, and the most/fewest types of weather.

2. My sweet EA brought me a coffee this week. I love the word "funtastic". Hehe. She's so cute.

3. We started learning our doubles this week. Have you heard Mr. Harry Kindergarten's doubles song yet? Listen {here} and {here}. My kids love it! Warning: it *will* get stuck in your head. This is just a quick and easy doubles cover up game. Students flip over a card (A-10) or roll a ten sided die, double the number, and cover up the sum. First one to cover all their numbers wins! You can download a copy {here}.

4. We're getting ready for 100 Day! Ours will be on February 12th. I made these cute counting mats (inspired by Erica's). I laminated them so I can use them again next year. We can use them for our 100 collections and fruit loop necklaces!

5. We're studying our five senses. Yesterday we talked about our sense of touch and did the mystery bag experiment. I had twelve bags with a variety of items (lego, spoon, mitten, book, etc.) and students had to figure out what was in the bag just by using their sense of touch. I blogged about this last year and had the sheets available to download. They always have fun with this activity!

That's it for now! Just a reminder that Sunday is the big Super Bowl sale! Everything in my store will be 20% off. Use the promo code SUPER to get an additional 10% off. Check out my store {here}.

Thanks for the cute logo Ashley!

  7. Thanks, hun. I'm thinking of you, too. Things will be fine - I know how much support I have! I'm lucky to have a daughter who understands my book addiction, my control issues, and how hard it is to have to be out of my classroom...and who gives me a hug when things get tougher. Love you lots!
