Tuesday Randomness AGAIN!!

Happy almost Hump Day, Peeps!! Kerri here...

I apologize in advance for the randomness of this post, but I have all kinds of stuff to share today. I am feeling like a total blogging failure lately, but I promise to get back on the bandwagon soon!

We finished up our unit on owls and bats, and we had soooo much fun dissecting owl pellets. I got mine from discountowlpellets.com. The kids were seriously fascinated...

Poor little bird skull!
After learning about both owls and bats, we made our very first  double bubble thinking map comparing the 2 animals. They did a great job thinking of ways that owls and bats are alike and different!

We also did a direct drawing of a bat and wrote about them using our bat tree maps to help us...

Here are some silly jack-lantern faces inspired by Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching. She made these last year and I just knew we had to make them too...I especially LOVE their snaggle teeth!

 And here's a look at all of our October projects hanging up in the room....So festive and Halloweeny!!

In other news, we have been working on writing juicy describing sentences. No more Kindergarten "I like the...and I see a...." for us!! The kids are really getting into it, and my thematic writing centers help them so much with this!

"Owls hunt a night cause there enemies can't see them" Love how she spelled "there"!

"One night a monster popped up. I was scared."
Another thing my kidlets are loving are our Word of the Week Printables that we do each Monday for lit. centers...Here is the one we did this week! This is helping their vocabulary lots and lots!

I am SUPER DUPER lucky to have a wonderful student teacher this year and she has AH-MAZING printing and art skills. Look at this poster she made us to help us remember all of our addition strategies... 

Lastly, guess whose classroom was #23 on Buzzfeed's article on Epic classroom decor?? MINE! I was sooo excited!

Later, Gators!!

Love all of your ideas! Do you have that blank double map on TPT or anywhere to download it from?

There is another approach here if your credit records are not as much as great. Observe around for those auto merchants why should frantic move their autos. You will find that these merchants may well overlook the actuality you have poor credit, just on the grounds that they are edgy to offer. check cashing
