Mail, Garbage, and Bones!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday linky party.
 It's been a busy and fun week.  Our theme has been community helpers.  Take a look at some of our activities.
We learned about mail carriers and then made these mail pouches.
The little writers then filled out postcards, practicing writing letters, abc's, and drawing.

There were so many stages of writing happening in this activity.
 It was exciting to see.  The next day everyone wanted to make more postcards and deliver them to their friends.  I always love to see my sweet ones get excited about writing.
After reading 'I Stink', we made these adorable trash trucks.
I love, love, love how they turned out.  :)
I love the different characteristics each truck took on.  :)
We also played an alphabet game based off the book.  Each little learner picked a card that had a picture of something the trash truck ate.  They had to decide what letter of the alphabet the picture started with and then bingo dot the letter on a garbage truck.
The little learners loved this activity.  They think the pictures from the book are hilarious!
After learning about the medical field, we made these 'x-rays' of our hands.
We started off painting our hands and wrists with white paint on black paper.
Then, we squeezed glue and placed q-tips to look like the bones in our hands and wrists.
I just posted my 'I Stink' ABC Activity and Garbage Truck Craftivity on Teachers Pay Teachers.  You can find it HERE, if you are interested.

That's it for my week!  Head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching for more Five for Friday.
Thanks for reading.  Have a great day.  :)
