Can I ever post a blog-post before midnight?
It's Friday and I actually have things to talk about so I'm going to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday Linky Party.
#1) Nashville has been re-runs lately, so I'm getting my drama-fix from Dallas. Woow, it's great right now. To begin, I'm from Dallas, so it has a special place in my heart.
Second, I have the slightest crush on Bobby Ewing....
and now, John Ross Ewing (yummy).
#2) I got my April Scholastic Flyers today. I saw a book I cannot wait to get!
It's a poetry book about dog names...I L-O-V-E names!
And I really need help teaching poetry. I hope I can find some PD this summer on poetry.
#3) I got an iPad over Spring Break, but I can barely use it because My Girl has it in her hands about 80% of the time! On the upside...she's reading some word families now:)
#4) I WANT TO SLEEP IN TOMORROW (yes I'm yelling in a whiney voice)...but I have to teach Saturday School:(

#5) Today, my kiddos played 2 Games - first, prefix/suffix baseball (I'm sure all of you play baseball at some point or another so I won't bore you with it). Second, we played "Who's My Character?' This is a higher level thinking game where students draw conclusion and implement their questioning skills. Students first generate questions about who their character is. I put a character from a well known book, tv show or kid-friendly movie on a label and put it on their back. Then, they walk around and ask their classmates questions. Finally, they draw a conclusion about who their character is.
