Five for Friday and a Freebie

Happy Friday!!!  I am linking up for Doodle Bugs Teaching Five for Friday.

Check out my newest addition to my Lego classroom!!!

I am so excited!  The dad of one of my students works at our movie theater.  I know it is big, but it is so much fun.  My plan is to use it to display "awesome" student work.  I need to cover the bottom and add clips for students to display their work.
Target Dollar Spot finds!  I am planning for S.T.E.M. week at our school.   We are going to start with these pull back race cars to help us understand force and motion with equal and opposite reaction play.  
Then I found these fun balloon rockets.  I can't wait to see the students exploring and learning with these.  They will have so much fun outside with balloon rocket races.
Then I am going to put these two things together and make balloon powered Lego cars.
I was able to candle my little eggs this week and happy to see little ducks growing in many of the eggs.  Every year seeing this amazes me.
By the way did you know the overhead projector works great for candling eggs?  It is the only time I use one all year!
 We have beautiful weather forcasted all weekend!  This is where you will find me come Sunday!  I will work tomorrow to play the next day.  Love living in Florida!

Now a Freebie for you.  Drawing conclusions is a tough skill for firsties to grasp.  This is a graphic organizer I made and it really helps students understand to look for clues while we are reading.  Doing this and drawing conclusions will help us understand what we read.  Click here to grab it free!
