Peek at my Week- Bats, Around the Campfire- a Narrative Writing Event, a giveaway and two freebies!

Click below to head to the par-tay! ;)
This last week has been a wonderfully crazy busy week.
First.....we finally closed on our house!!!!!!! I was beginning to wonder if it would actually ever happen with me not having patches of hair ripped out. We are officially official homeowners! YAY!
This week has also been filled with school events, family photos, and fall fun.
We also began our Around the Campfire Narrative Writing Event.
I can't even begin to tell you how excited my kids and I are about our upcoming writing event!
I've had notes, phone calls, and parents dropping by to ask me about our upcoming event.
Check out a quick preview or click on any picture below for more information.

 I'll be back throughout the week to show you a few samples of our writing. In the meantime, would you like to win a copy?!
Just leave me a comment below with YOUR favorite family tradition and I'll pick a winner!

In Math this week we're beginning the third unit of our program that focuses on Operations. We're actually beginning with doubles and a *touch* of number bonds this week.
Monday we'll have fun with this doubles rap and use this video and various lessons from Kahn academy to supplement throughout the week.

This week we're all about BATS!
We'll be pairing informational texts with the ever popular Stellaluna.
Can I make a teacher confession?
I've never read Stellaluna with a class before!
Last year was actually the first year I taught Bats with my Kinders, but we just ran out of time.
 You can purchase the book here or listen via Storyline Online here.
Definitely grab these informational text freebies below!

In Science we have been using amazing videos from the National Weather Service to learn all about weather. We will be continuing our studies this week with investigating different types of clouds and creating our own cloud with this experiment.

 Have a fabulous week!
