I am linking up with Forever in 5th Grade for Show & Tell Tuesday. Just a little peek at some of the things in our lives and classroom!
As you can probably tell from my profile pictures and my blog, we have a lot of boys in our family. 6 of our own to be exact. We also have 2 nephews, so up until August we were a boys only family. In August my sister-in-law had a baby girl, and we finally had a girl in the family. We visited them this past week, and you can tell my hubby is just smitten with his niece!
A few weeks ago, I showed my class the video, Cain's Arcade. You can watch it below. They have become so inspired to make their own cardboard arcade. Here is just a sample of their work.
I will be sharing a more complete post once they have completed their projects, but let me just say, I have been impressed!
Two of our favorite picture book read alouds have been these two:
They are great mentor texts for writing and figurative language!
I love the erasable Frixion pens, so I was super excited when these arrived in the mail on Friday from Amazon! They are erasable markers! I am always making mistakes on my anchor charts, so I am looking forward to using these! You can find them here.
