Five For Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching


Alright … I am kicking off my Five for Friday with some LITERACY!  Yes, can you believe it?!?  I am actually posting some literacy!  I actually LOVE my literacy block, as in obsessed with this time.  We have been working on some fluency and "ghost" letters.  The fluency task cards help my students with their oral reading.  Honestly, it is sooooooo cute /funny listening to them reading with expression!  (thank you Teaching with a Mountain View)

My other little friends are playing Ghost, which you find here.  They are practicing those tricky silent letters!  I love that they take their word work game seriously!!!!


We are ALL so ready to get outside and run … but I do enjoy watching them play with each other inside!!  Ummm… and the girls are playing school!!!!  Melts my heart!  That is what I use to do!


I threw in a little review with some money this week.  We headed to the bakery!  I projected the bake shop items and their cost.  Each student had task cards and a recording sheet.

The task… you had a certain amount of coins on each card… and you needed to buy 2 (only 2) items that equal the value of the coins.

What I wasn't expecting ... was the discourse that happened!  What did I hear you say?  My students could explain why they chose each item!  #YAY

Here is this FREEBIE!  


I went to the teacher store, and I am obsessed with all the cuteness and trendiness (my wallet does NOT love it so much)!  My little cousin found the most amazing stickers ever!  Mint chocolate chip smelly stickers… I am OBSESSED with mint chocolate chip ice cream… HAD TO HAVE THEM!  Guess who else loved them?  My students!!!!!!  #willworkforstickers #itsthelittlethings


I AM OFF TO CHICAGO (after work)!!!!!!!!!  I have never been and I am soooooooooo EXCITED to go!!!  I obviously had to get sooooo much swag for the trip.  It is totally normal, right?!?!  They paint their river green?!!!?  

That is my Five for Friday!  Have a great weekend!
