Five for Friday ~ September 19, 2014

Hello, everyone!  What a week!! I am ready for another Five for Friday with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching!
1.  I finally finished helping with the 1st - 3rd grade reading assessments!  BUT I have been helping with the 4th-6th grade reading assessments this week!  If I have to hear about fossils one more time, I might scream!  I heard the passage ready to me three times in 30 minutes!!!

After next week, we start kindergarten reading assessments!!

2.  I am so thankful for Fun Fridays!  Today I worked with my first and second graders on digraphs and played a little game from Jennifer Drake with them.  It really helped them to remember those tricky pairs.

3.  My third graders worked on main idea with me this week.  Head on over to Adventures in Literacy Land for a peek at how we made sense of main idea in fiction.

4.  My third grade groups have started on their Cloze Paragraphs I created for the year.  They actually look forward to doing these.  Today was Talk Like a Pirate Day, so we did the pirate one today.  I love how these make them think about what they are reading.

5.  My son's school is doing a Boosterthon fundraiser this year.  They are trying to get pledges from every state and have 41 states so far!  He also wants 2 more pledges this weekend to get a fun and crazy hat.  {Yeah, like he needs it!}
