Sunday RESTday.

Back in the day, I remember people used to call Sunday, "Sunday FUNday." Well, I feel old and my idea of fun is sitting on the couch and resting and relaxing. That's what I've done today while catching up on my shows. It has been wonderful, people.

Oh, where to begin, where to begin?! What a week it was! It flew by so fast, but at the same time was just completely jam-packed! We had some collaboration days- one half day to plan some close reading lessons and another half day to look at how our kids did on their performance events in writing. I have a feeling this week will feel long considering Thanksgiving is just right around the corner!

I don't know about you guys, but I love me some Thanksgiving! Mainly because I have a food addiction. I am very thankful for food, especially Thanksgiving food! Mmm... Mashed potatoes... Mmm.

Wednesday, the mister and I went to see Sporting KC play against the New England Revolution. It was about 35 degrees and boy... Did we freeze?! It also went into overtime and all that fun stuff and so therefore, we didn't get back home until midnight. This little teacher lady was exhausted the next day. Coffee was my best friend. Coffee is always my best friend. Here we are enjoying the game, all bundled up!

Anyway, this week my kids really enjoyed practicing the -ar sound with the fun Pirates Word Work pack I created. Their absolute favorite part? The game of course! I could totally see them really grasping the -ar sound and reading the vowel sound (when they are sounding it out) first before they read the whole word. Anyway, even though they got a little loud (who can blame them? They were having a great time!), they were loving it.

Here's the set-up to keep the game all nice and organized. 
Here's a group playing at my back table during our tutoring time. This poor little one got the Walk The Plank card!
 Notice our game pieces... We are definitely using the witch fingers that we use during guided reading. They tip over sometimes, but hey... They work!
 Recording on the recording sheet.
 The set-up! It was a hit!

They already asked me if they could play the game this upcoming week if we have to stay inside for recess. :)

Here's the pack available in my TPT store.

This pack includes math and literacy activities. What they will be most excited about though will be the thankful bucket fillers. Whenever they feel thankful for someone in our class, they can fill out a thankful bucket filler and place it in our bucket filler bucket. I will read them all at the end of the day for the class to hear how thankful we all are for everyone :)

Here it is for free, just for you! Just click the picture and it will take you to my TPT store for a free download. Enjoy!
