Five for Friday
It's Five for Friday on Saturday, (again). Sorry.
1. I think I'll start off with a story...This week I wanted to teach my kinders about blends so I thought it might be fun to bring my blender and make smoothies with them. What a great way to reinforce the idea of "blending" the sounds together, right? They absolutely LOVED the berry smoothies and got the concept of blends, no problem. I was thrilled. The next day I pointed to the chart where all the blend cards were placed, and asked them what they were called. With great enthusiasm they yelled, "Smoothies!" Well, I guess I laughed a little too much because now I can't get them to call them blends. I'll have to give next year's teacher a heads up! I sort of like "smoothies" better.
Check them out!
5. Here's a paper quilt made by my first grade art class! See my April 13th post for instructions. That's it for me. Happy weekend!
