5 for Friday!

This was quite the week, boy oh boy, Friday I (puffy) heart you!

We went to the zoo today!   The kiddos had a GREAT time!  I had enough chaperones that each parent only had two kiddos!  Wahoo!!   My best advice is.....

1.   PLAN AHEAD.  I had the group list ready and printed out for the chaperones.  Previously sent a note home indicating the details...  And asked them to bring a backpack/bag to carry lunches.   It went great!!!  (Minus the snow, rain, and sleet!) The day of - I had a sheet with important phone numbers, group names, times, etc.


2.  We have been studying the zoo all week!  On Thursday, I had the kiddos research the giraffe.  So Monday-Wed the got to see how to research a elephant, ape, monkey, zebra and then... they went off to work on writing in the computer lab, but doing their own research!  (Was I nervous?  HECK YES! But they did AWESOME!!!!)

3.  Found this awesome kid safe "google"   Check it out!

4.  Here is a freebie for you!!!   I love these!  Stamp It sight word reader!  We studied weather, and learned the word "did".  Check out the book here!


5.   Last but not least....   

Have a fab weekend friends.  Live life to the fullest, be thankful for each day.  Keep doing what you do!!!!
