Five for Friday on Saturday with Two Free Centers + A GIVEAWAY

Burning the candle at both ends this week?  Yes indeed.  School, family get together, Halloween party, trick or treating, ballet, soccer, choir, birthday party, sleepover, you name it . . . we did it.   Therefore my Five for Friday is on Saturday.  Let's get started.

Number 1
This morning my little family did a race together.  It was A's school system's annual race.  We did the mile fun run portion together.  I was so proud of her, she ran the whole way.  It certainly helped that her best buddy was there and they ran together.  You should have heard their conversation during the run, too funny!  We finished at the 50 yard line of the high school football field with the band playing.  It was a fun morning.

Number 2
Friday I changed all of our October centers out for November ones.  Whenever I change out centers, I go over all of the instructions on the front end.  My firsties have to do a lot of listening.  I am very careful with my selection of activities and skills.  I try to put out activities that are simple to execute and some that are already familiar (but maybe with new skills).

Number 3
Speaking of November centers, if you would like a free copy of one literacy center from my Thanks and Giving {10 Literacy Centers for November} packet, click on the picture below.  Autumn ABC Order is a center that allows students to practice putting words in ABC order.  It includes twelve fall themed center cards and a blackline master recording sheet.

Number 4
You can also have a free center from my Thanks and Giving {10 Math Centers for November} by click on the picture below.  Touchdown Turkeys is a math center that focuses on basic addition facts (doubles and near doubles).  There are full color turkey equation cards and football sum cards for matching, as well as a recording sheet.

Number 5
Interested in winning the complete set of Thanks and Giving Math and Literacy packets?  Join School Is a Happy Place as a follower.  I will do a drawing on Monday evening for two winners.  If you have already joined, you are automatically entered for the drawing.  Good luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading.  Enjoy your extra hour of sleep in the morning.   
Also thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting Five for Friday and allowing for late comers.
