Now to get to one of my favorite linkys. Five for Friday! It's funny to admit, but when I am planning for the week and teaching, I always think about...what can I take a picture of or give away for free for our Five for Friday post?
We started our unit on heroes. Don't mind my chart, it's messy, but you get the point. Those are a few books we will be reading to determine if the characters are true "heroes" or people just doing "good deeds." The kids are LOVING this unit so far!
Sorry this is going sideways, but I will fix it and explain more about it on Monday. This is a great lesson Robyn and I planned out using the website Kids Are Heroes and the book Something Beautiful. We are trying to get the students to see that heroes go "above and beyond" what is expected and change other people's lives. Check back for this freebie on Monday, for our Manic Monday post! :)
We came up with class definitions for a hero, idol, and coward. The kids were right on target!
Anyone else have a DCB (Deep Covered Baker)? I'm in love with mine. This is a new recipe I am going to try this weekend! Yummm! If you have one from Pampered Chef, check out the FB group for recipes!
I found these on Pinterest the other day (of course) and thought they would be so fun to make this weekend with my 3 year old daughter. Both of my kids have peanut allergies (weird, right!?), so the only time they can get sweets is if I make them and know what's inside.
Have a great weekend, I hope it is full of fun and sunshine!
