5 for Friday! {and a freebie}

It's another Five for Friday offered by Doodle Bugs Teaching.

My momma always told me "be careful what you wish for".  In my last post I wrote we had not had much snow and zero snow days so far this school year.  Well, we got both this week.  We only had school on Monday.  The rest of the week was a wash.  Enough….. I am ready to go back now!
My cold friend getting to use her snow blower.  :)

I know I have said it before, but I have the most amazing SLP.  A mom of one of our sweet friends asked about ideas to help him not touch everything when she takes him shopping. 
Together with our OT they came up with this.  I think it's pretty fabulous!
All the little cards have different textures to feel.  They are on a ring, so you can rotate the cards and use as many or few as you want.  My SLP went to Hobby Lobby and purchased everything and put it together.  You rock, girl!  I am SOOOO lucky to work in a building with such great people.
The one day we had school this week I started a "If You Give a …………" theme.  Monday we read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.  Our library has student packs of class books.  Each little learner got to follow along and "read" the book as a class.  They took their job very seriously.  I love this picture!
I also posted an "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" pack on TpT and TN.  You can click on the store initials to check it out.
Since I was off work most of this week, I had time to put together a valentine pack to go with Mouse in Laura Numeroff's books.
Here are some of the activities:
I also have included a pattern to make Valentine Mouse in the pack.
You can find it on TpT and TN.  I plan on using this pack next week with my sweeties.  
I also have a "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose" retelling pack for another Valentine's Day option.
This pack is also available at TpT and TN.
I feel guilty with all this self promoting in this post, so enjoy a freebie on me!

  1. That snow is insane!! We are having gorgeous Summer weather here and I have been just amazed by all of the photos posted by bloggers in the 'polar vortex'! I used to live in Calgary and we got a lot of snow, but never a snow day while I was there.

    Stay warm!
