Five for Friday- October 10

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky.

Has anyone else participated in SLANT box before?  September was my first time and I really enjoyed getting to know other educators.  I mean.. look at the gifts I got.  She nailed it!  This was a positive way to end my Monday for sure.

1- chevron scarf
2- chevron journal
3- chevron notepad
4- magnet teacher quote... just happens to be one of my favorite quotes!
4- Post It tabs
5- Flair Pens
6- Keep Calm and Teach On t-shirt
7- Mini Oreos.. that I already ate.  Oops!

Thanks again, Stephanie!
{sorry for the dirty white board}
We started talking about what a paragraph looks like.  This hamburger visual does a great job of illustrating what a paragraph needs.

 Regrouping is a tough concept for students to master.  This poem is a visual reminder for students as they solve subtraction problems.  I have students keep this in their math folder.

We are working on suffixes for our current word study unit.  With an active class, I try to incorporate around the room activities.  For this activity I placed the cards in random spots around the room.  Based off the card the students find, they have to determine if there is an -s or -es added to the base word.  

I officially have my K-12 reading endorsement!!  I spent last school year taking graduate school courses and I am so happy that I can officially check this off my list!
