High-Five Friday!

What would my Five for Friday be if it was actually on a Friday?  Here are my 5!
First, this week we read Pete the Cat. We talked about character,  cause and effect, and sequencing.  
I’m not sure where I got this sequencing sheet but I loved teaching retelling words with this worksheet.  If anyone knows the creator I would love to give credit. 
We also created a list of topics we can write about this year to put in their writing binders.


This guy above is my amazing counselor. Y’all can be very jealous because I think we have the best counselor on earth.  He does some pretty amazing things for our school.  He not only comes to our classrooms and does lessons for our kiddos, he also does a great art therapy program, implemented a school bullying program and leads some awesome class plays. That is in addition to the fundraisers he leads, IEP’s he sorts through and other endless duties.  He’s all about building community and I love this art project he had our school family create. Everyone in the school received a fourth of a circle to decorate. Together we create a pretty beautiful picture.  
We also have these cool new raglan shirts to wear on Wednesdays when we have our class meetings to discuss feelings, concerns, bullying, etc.  
The front is our school name.  The back says, staff. Our parents and students have similar shirts with parent and student on the back.  I just love being part of such an great community.  
Are y’all so excited for Fall. Once school starts I’m pretty much over summer and ready for pumpkins and boots.  I created a little subway art of my favorite things in fall.
For all you second grade teachers, I’m so sorry I’m such a slacker.  I have had so many emails and messages and yes…. the December/January morning menu is almost complete. This weekend I’ll be posting it in my shop.  
My Teacher Planner comes sometime today. I’m so excited to see it! 
If you don’t have an Erin Condren Planner, you need one asap!
