Five for Fridayish: Funny Voices Edition

Hey guys!

It's been a minute (the whole life thing is pretty hectic at the moment) but I squeezed in some time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and share my Five for Friday!

Hi, I'm Marianna, and I can't resist font bundles from The Hungry JPEG...

Both my 3rd and 4th graders are heavily diving into historical fiction right now. Now, there are many fascinating, interesting nonfiction resources out there...however, the book we use for core instruction decided to go in a more (ahem) boring direction. Seeing my 3rd graders' eyes glaze over at the thought of reading a particular uninteresting passage for the 3rd time, I grabbed these fluency cards I picked up years and years ago (unfortunately I can't remember from where...if you know PLEASE tell me!). My students were reading in pairs, so each pair got one. They switched off by paragraphs reading with the type of voice if they had on their card. Trust me, the next time you have to slog though some non-fun material, tell them they can read it like a pirate! It makes everything better.

I have shouted my love of Flocabulary from the rooftops on more than one occasion, and am super psyched to be a Flocabulary MCE Educator! My new favorite way to use it? I pick one song for the week based on content we are learning, and we listen to it any time we transition (switching classes, lining up, cleaning up for dismissal). By the end of the week I am positive that the material has seeped into everyone's brain, and my students LOVE IT. They beg to listen to the songs.

Want to try Flocabulary out for yourself? By signing up and inviting some of your teacher pals to check it out, you can feel the Flocab love for 60 days for FREE. By that time, you will be in love, I guarantee it! Click on this link for more info.

Love is in the air, and what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day in your class than with a choice board? 

All my new choice boards now include a rubric as well as activity on the picture to check it out!

I also whipped up a set of Valentine's Day Contraction Task Cards:

The kiddos had a fun game of SCOOT using these...we needed to be up and out of our seats after a very long unit assessment this week!

Just click on the pictures to see them in my store!

It was "cold" here this week (you know, S. Florida cold), so SOME OF US felt like we could sleep wherever we wanted, instead of our own perfectly comfortable dog beds. These two did not want to budge! Clearly you can see who is in charge of this household.

Have a great weekend, everyone! See you next week.
