I finally figured out (fingers crossed) a good combination of Reading Centers and the Daily Five.  Click the picture to read more about it!

In Writer's Workshop, I introduced EDITING with our writing partners!  

It was a hit.

We put a reference sheet inside our Writer's Notebook to help us know the right words to say.

We also began our How To unit.  
My students wrote a mini "How To Eat an Oreo Cookie" book!
How do you eat an oreo cookie?
Twist it? Bite it? Scrape it? Dip it? Lick it? 

In Social Studies we have been learning about Mexico.  
On Wednesday, we learned all about sombreros.  We got to decorate one with sequins *SEQUINS!!!* (cue every six year old to scream with's the little things in life.).  Then we wrote what we learned and described our own.

After we were finished with this project, our classroom looked like Hobby Lobby vomited inside it. There were sequins everywhere! ("Sequins! HOW SHINY! I am beyond excited because I am gluing a tiny piece of plastic onto construction paper!")

Today I wore my favorite Blue Corduroy Skinny Jeans and I had a twinkie! 

One of my students wore the exact.same.pants. (only a few sizes smaller and he found his in the little boys department!)
I managed to snap a picture with him on this special occasion! 

Doesn't he have the best style in town? 
(just look at those little six year old Tom's!)

Happy Friday ya'll!


  1. I like your reference sheet for what to say with their editing partner. I also love your topic for "how to" writing!! So fun!!! :)
