It's Friday...Linky!

I am so glad today is Friday!  This has been a BUSY week and the next few weeks are going to be just as busy!  Today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday!

Here is what has been happening in my world this week! 
Our seeds that we planted have sprouted!  It is truly a miracle!  This is half of my classes pots and the students are so excited to see the growth each day.  We are keeping a short journal of the growth.
I completed my Fun With Frog Pack this week!  I love making my own center activities and finally had some time to work on another pack.  The pack was so much fun to make and the students loved the activities. Click on the picture to learn more about it and also look at the pictures below that show some of the fun activities!

.  The students completed this activity of ordering the sentence and then recording it. 
We also played a fun math game.  For this game students rolled the fly cube and counted how many flys there were.  Then they rolled the frog cube to see how many flies the frog ate.  We then subtracted to find the answer.  Students recorded the subtraction sentences on a recording sheet.
If you don't have the cubes, I would HIGHLY recommend them.  They are so easy to switch out and make it so you can play so many fun games!  I use them for sight word games, addition, subtraction, and alphabet games!  I also love that they are soft so rolling them makes no noise on a table!  Click on the picture below to purchase from Carson Dellosa.
Today my kindergarten class did not have school.  Next years kindergarteners had the opportunity to come see the school and do some fun activities.  We take them on a bus ride around the neighborhood, read a Gingerbread Man story, have them color and cut out a gingerbread man(YIKES!  Those scissor skills were a bit scary!) and of course have gingerbread cookies and milk! 
I have also been working on printing out pages for memory books.  During the school year we take pictures of the students doing class activities and events (sitting with Santa, meeting a firefighter, dressed as pilgrims, etc.).  We then put the pages together for the students to have as a keepsake from kindergarten.  They are SOOOOOOOO much work!  I always put it off until the last minute to get them all put together.  This is my project for the weekend!  UGH!  I really wish I had a magic wand and they would magically be done!  

I hope you have had a great week and are able to enjoy the weekend!

Frog Freebies!

My class is learning about life cycles!  We started with the life cycle of a plant and are watching our little sprouts grow!  Hopefully they will stay alive and the kiddos can take them home for their moms for Mother's Day next week!  We are now learning about frogs!  Here are two freebies for you that I am using in my class this week!

The first activity is a Fr and Fl Blends Sort Worksheet.  Students will sort the eight pictures by the beginning blend sound.
To get this freebie click here!

The next freebie is for math!  My students need some extra practice on addition so I created these simple addition cards for them to practice with! 

The set includes 20 equations!
Click here to get this freebie!
I actually have some foam lily pads for the students to lay out like a number line on the floor.  That way they can physically act out the addition equations to find the sum!  It's May and their energy level is HIGH!  I've got to get that energy out!

If you download these freebies please leave a comment to show your appreciation! Also, be sure to follow my blog to find out about all of my freebies and products!
