So I am back and am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
We have been digging into my "Incredible Polar Bears" unit and learning all about nonfiction text features. Penguins will always have my heart but I did penguins last year and a bunch of my kiddos looped up with me. My kids are loving every second of this unit and are learning a ton! Every page in the booklet uses a different nonfiction text feature. My kids are absolutely LOVING this unit! Here are some pics:
In math we have been working on graphing. This is probably one of my favourite units to teach:) I have four different graphing units in my store I change up the ones I use each year. This year we are using "Graphs Galore" and "Arctic Antics". "Arctic Antics" ties in perfectly with our polar bear unit. Most kids pick up the graphing part quite quickly, however, explaining their thinking using mathematical language is a bit trickier.
I love Kimberly Geswein fonts! They are cute and creative! I wanted to use them in my products but I couldn't afford to buy her lifetime font license. So as a solution Kimberly will let you buy 50 single font licenses a bit at a time. Once I bought my 50 single font licenses I emailed Kimberly and she gave me a lifetime font license! I am so glad I did it this way!
Valentine's Day unit a bit early this year so I wasn't having to worry about getting it prepped right in the middle of writing report cards!
So there's a look at my week!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend ~ it is freezing here!
