Five for Friday!

So, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for some Randomness!  Who doesn't like Randomness!  :)

1. Wow!  Coming back to school is hard!  I went to bed every night this week at 8:30 (except tonight).

2.  I really wanted to regale everyone with my wonderful teaching/blogging prowess by posting impressive pictures of the great learning we did this week.  I REALLY wanted to!
3. I read a GREAT book to my kiddos this week to make mental images.  Boy, we came up with some good ones!  Down to the taste of the metal spoon on our tounges!  This book is great for Making Mental Images!
4. We are extensively studying poetry and the kiddos really got a huge kick out of:

I had a lot of really thoughtful comments about this one!  I had to raffle it off before Daily 5 the kiddos wanted it so badly!

  2. Gosh Stacy, thanks! I 'm blushing!

  3. Thanks for the tip about the mental imagery book. That is just what I have been looking for!

  4. Alyssha,
    I used this to make mental images using the five senses! It was great. I didn't show them the cover or the pictures. We read one page at a time and discussed. They loved it. When we were finished for the week, I finally read them the whole book showing them the cover and the pictures. They were delighted! It was a great activity!

  5. I love finding new second grade blogs! Yours is just precious. I am so glad I found yours through the Five for Friday linky! Hope your little one feels better soon.
