5 For Friday


Wow!  It's already Friday!  This week has gone by fast.  My week of vacation is over and summer school has started already and it is time for Doodle Bugs fun linky- FIVE FOR FRIDAY!  Link up and join in the fun!

1.  Spring Flowers



Since I had some time off before summer school started on Tuesday, I finally got some spring flowers planted.  I love colorful flowers!  


2.  Power Yoga

Product Details

I just got this yoga dvd in the mail.  This is not your relaxing, stretching yoga!  Jillian puts you through a work out with this one!  Loving it too!

3.  Sight Word Balls for Summer School


Did I mention that we are back in school already??  Yes, okay I did...I guess I am just in disbelief how fast that week off went!  Some of my groups have been working on sight words and using the sight word ball to make it more fun.  Where ever your thumbs land, those are the words you read.

4.  Curious George

5 For Friday

My incoming kindergartners and first graders are doing a Curious George unit in summer school.  Who doesn't love Curious George?  We are going to be doing a lot of fun stuff!

5.  Field Trip Time

Picture

Once a week during summer school, each grade level group gets to take a field trip.  This week we went to Jump Around.  What a lot of bouncy, jumping, get out all that extra energy fun!!

  1. Lori, I would love to see your Curious George unit! Do you have it up on TPT? We don't have incoming K's at our summer school but we have incoming firsties and I think that would be a great idea.

  5. I love the idea of taking your kids on weekly field trips because they definitely need the break. Summer school will be over before you know it, and you'll be back on break! I've always wanted to try a Jillian Michael's dvd.

  6. That's a special treat for your summer school kids. I'm sure that even though they need the extra academics, they also need to enjoy some time to have summery fun too.

  9. Let us know how you like your new DVD. She's a tough one! I love to use Yogalosophy (Jennifer Aniston's trainer Mandy Ingber) .

    Thanks for sharing! I'm in my last month of school and I could really use a jump in that pit!

  10. I ADORE Curious George! How long is your summer school? I've never heard of it for young kids like kinders and 1st graders.

    Next question-how did you make that picture collage?

  22. Shannon, our summer school is 19 days long. We include our incoming kindergartners so they can start getting used to the building and routine in an abbreviated way. I made the picture collage using Instacollage app. Fun!

  23. Barbara, Jump Around was a lot of fun and we had a lot of tired kids afterward!
