Peek at my Week- Pilgrims and Play Practice

Happy Sunday friends!  Just a quick post so I can link up with Deedee from Mrs. Wills Kindergarten so you can Peek at my Week!

 This week is a busy one!  We will talk and learn all about Pilgrims and Indians.  We will also start practicing for our little play about The First Thanksgiving the day of our Thanksgiving luncheon.  It's also conference week! YAY!! (read that as UGH!!!).  So we have 1/2 days on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to provide time for it.  Nothing like staying at school until 7pm on a Thursday night! Woot!  

And now for the plans (because I have to get to planning for our play... !!!)

Hope you have a wonderful week everyone.  Happy teaching!

Peek at my Week- More Turkeys!

This shortened week is bringing more turkeys my way.  AND I had a crazy idea to have some fun in my room.  So, I'm linking up with Deedee from Mrs. Wills Kindergarten to share during a Peek at me Week!
Turkeys turkeys everywhere and not a one to eat!  We will be reading fiction about turkeys and some nonfiction to learn some facts as well.  Maybe I can find time to throw in some sort of craftivity, BUT that might have to wait.  No school today- teacher work day, which turned into the biggest disaster of a day I've had in a while, all ending with a rental car that smells like pee- no joke.  Straight up pee...  EEEEWWWW!!!!  Ugh.  And Wednesday I will be out for an all day planning day with my team, which is very much needed and I look forward to FINALLY getting ahead.

And tonight while looking at this lovely book:

I got a CRAZY idea. :-)   So the book is all about Pete being in his class play about the first Thanksgiving and it's a really good way to introduce students to the story of the first Thanksgiving, which my class is in need of this year (SIMPLE!).  AND every year we have a Thanksgiving luncheon in which the parents come and everyone eats delicious turkey and stuffing and all the trimmings and we celebrate.  SO now I'm thinking maybe we could put together a super simple play all about the First Thanksgiving, similar to what Pete the Cat did!!!  It would be LOTS of fun, but also alot of work... HMMMM...  Anyone ever do this before???  Tips??  I just have to figure out when the luncheon is to make sure I have enough time! YIKES!

Here are the plans:

Hope it's a smooth week for all of you.  Happy Teaching!

Peek at my Week- Yay it's November!

Happy November everyone!  I LOVE November because it's the start of the holidays and it means Xmas is still coming and there's just so much fun stuff to look forward to!  So I'm linking up with Deedee from Mrs. Will's Kindergarten for a Peek at my Week.

 We are starting our turkey theme this week and I am super excited for it!  

Today was a field trip (WHICH WAS AMAZING!!! more on that during my five for friday) so I wasn't worried about plans being ready... ;-)  We are going to start pushing beginning sounds for the lower friends and sounding out CVC words for the higher friends.  I still feel behind this year because of the crazy start to the year, but things are coming along.

Here are the plans:

 Hope your week is off to a great start!  Happy teaching!!
