Second Grade Nest: Five for Friday

Five for Friday

Besides being a terrible blogger, I had a pretty good week.
First week without Academic Team practices every day of the week. 
I focused on teaching, tried new things, and enjoyed my little ones. 

Here is a look back at my week. 

Started off my week with a successful trip to Regionals Governor's Cup! 
We took fourth overall (last ones to get a state award!) Lucky us! 
Our Future Problem Solvers team took first place and my Quick Recall team took fourth. 
Tough competition and I could not be more proud of my kiddos! 


Time for nonfiction! I'm loving it!

I laid out my books and let my kiddos go searching!

They got a pink post-it for nonfiction and a green post-it for fiction.

Then, we did a mini lesson on text features and worked through a cut and paste together.
These activities are both in my nonfiction unit!

Big sale this weekend!

I'm marking my entire store down 20% for the weekend! 
There are tons of other sellers joining in on this weekend sale. 
Check them out here. There is a 2 page link up! 

I've been living off of this....

And it is NOT fun! I have been sick for about a week and a half now.
I don't think I can physically cough anymore, but I keep doing it!

  1. Hi Jessica,
    I loved how you used different colored post its for fiction and non-fiction. Do you find your kids just love non-fiction? Mine sure do! I hope you are feeling better!
