A Peek at My Week--Linky Party!

This is my very first time linking up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for their "A Peek at My Week" linky party!  Exciting!  Here it goes!

I have another full week of school (unless snow ruins that) and it's still crazy!  We're still testing which means I'm juggling 12 groups this week.  It's hard keeping track of 12 different stories!

I plan on filling my 4th graders in about my aquarium trip (more on that tomorrow).  We've been reading about jellyfish so they're super excited to see the pictures and video I took!  Wait till they see their surprises!  Here's a quick fact sheet I put together using some pictures we took on Saturday.

In Kindergarten, I plan on continuing our "Short a" lessons and using this awesome CVC book I created!  Interested?  Check out my TPT store here to pick up your own copy!  I was going to wait until all 5 short vowel books were done BUT I'm too excited!  A colleague of mine started using the book on Friday.  She and her little ones loved it!  Can't wait to start it!

Looking forward to doing some more work on vowel digraphs with my 2nd graders.  They've been doing pretty well!  I love seeing them use the strategies we're learning!  This is part of my Vowel Digraphs/Talkers packet!  Click here to purchase!  Fantastic tool!

I hope everyone has a happy Monday!  Please keep checking back this week...I have lots of fun stuff to share!
