Five For Friday and November Currently

Well, did you survive?!  I gotta tell you I am so glad it's Friday!!  This has been one busy week and this lady needs a break!  Here are a few pics (well quite a few pics) of our activities from this week.


Halloween Morning


Graphing M&M's 
I got this cute freebie from Jennifer over at Rowdy In First Grade.


Graphing Our Costumes
We had a "Warrior" category and changed it to "Action"


Made some contraction spiders


and ended Halloween day with lots of sugary treats.

Today is Day of The Dead so we spent the day learning all about it.





I also used this great unit from Rachel Lamb

Our art teacher came in and taught my kids how to draw sugar skulls.  She had a Draw Along and it was so fun and easy.













She is a wonderful artist!



She discussed symmetry and talked about giving their artwork depth.




The kids did a wonderful job!
I loved her lesson and I made my own too.


Now do you see why I am exhausted?

But wait! I am killing two birds with one stone before I crash out.


This is a pretty Yummy pin of mine :)

Sweet Dreams
