Five for Friday (November 14)
We are linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.  This linky is where we share 5 random things from this past week. 
Sight Word Readers from my TpT store have been a huge hit in my kindergarten classroom this year.  My students love reading and one-to-one matching skills are improving tremendously.  I am amazed at the print concept skills this kinder group has!!
Here are a few pictures from this week in self-selected reading time.

If you are looking for Sight Word Readers, they are available in my TpT store.

Have you seen this super cute book from Scholastic Book Club?  I immediately got started on a Catching Snowflakes Unit to accompany this book.  I posted it earlier this week.  Check it out here!!

Catching Snowflakes (Literacy Resources) and Craftivity includes several writing graphic organizers for your primary learners. Students will be able to showcase their creative writing with the craftivity. Your hallway will have a great display for the holidays and throughout the winter. This packet is for kindergarten, first and second grades.

This packet suggests the following books to accompany this unit:
Winter is for Snow by Robert Neubecker
Stella (Queen of the Snow) by Marie Louise Gay
Millions of Snowflakes by Mary McKenna Siddals
The Story of Snow: The Science of Winter's Wonder by Mark Cassino

This is the craftivity to make with your writing. I saw the idea on I teach kindergarten and really needed templates to pull this off. Therefore, I created some templates so that others are able to create this with their young and eager learners.
I absolutely LOVE this fluency ring pack from Deanna Jump and Stephanie Stewart!!  This is how I have organized the sentence fluency rings for my kindergarteners.

The Book Fair was at our school this week!!  I purchased a few for my classroom.  Turkey Claus is so good!!  It is a must-have for the holidays!!

Finally, I am so thrilled with my kinders work on their turkeys!!

Endless Possibilities,
