Welcome back friends and happy Friday! Friday of course means it is time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and share this week’s five for Friday.
The BEST thing that happened over the past week is that my Donors Choose project was funded! In just 3 days my project was completely funded! I am completely humbled by the generous donors who supported my classroom. The kids are so excited that we have laptops coming and can’t wait to put them to good use!
This week’s art project was painting a waterfall. The kids used white, light blue, and dark blue paint to paint a waterfall. All of the waterfalls looked very cool when they were finished!
Along with painting waterfalls we also went on a few virtual field trips, including one to Niagara Falls. The kids loved watching Niagara Falls’ live webcam so much. We ended up viewing it everyday this past week. For more info on taking a virtual field trip to Niagara Falls or other places, check out our post from earlier in the week called Virtual Field Trips.
November made its debut this week. It is hard to believe it is already November!
We have lots of fun November activities planned both with our students and with our own friends and families. Stay tuned to the blog for lots of November fun!
Our friends at Super Simple Learning debuted a new song this week, The Hokey Pokey Shake! This song has already become a classroom favorite. You will definitely want to share this song with your little learners, they will love it!
This week culminated with our brand new laptops arriving! We could not believe how fast Donors Choose processed the order. Once the laptops made it to our classroom, it was like Christmas morning! We all sat in a big circle and opened the boxes together. There were lots of oooooh’s and ahhhhh’s and a plethora of “can we play with them?”
Next week we will finally have a computer center! All of our kiddos are going to benefit so much by having access to these laptops.
That rounds out our five for Friday for this week. We hope you have had a great week and wish you a relaxing and restful weekend!
