My Week In Pictures

This week was super busy!  We had fire prevention, Columbus Day, and preparation for Red Ribbon Week.  I thought I would post a few pictures from the week and give credit to all those creative bloggers out there.  I did a few of these myself, but many of them were from other sites. 
First up...Fire Safety
 These cute fire poems came from Mrs. Meachum's site under poetry notebooks
 I loved the fun hats and workbooks they got from the fire department.

We made a book for the fire fighters!  If you would like a copy of the cover or page inserts let me know.  I will post them up!
Christopher Columbus Day
I'm not sure if anyone else saw these cute boats on Pinterest, but I did.  We made these super cute snacks and Mrs. Van Orman pre made the little flags for the top of the boats.  My kids loved the snack and they were healthy....score!


Contractions
This activity was my favorite of the week, but I can't take even a little credit for this one.  This is from buzzing about second grade.
This contraction surgery with contractions with not was a huge hit and the kids didn't want to stop.  I'm pretty sure when we go to assess this my kids won't miss it.  We had a catchy phrase that went with it. "Oh no you gotts drop that o."  The kids cut out the bad o's and stiched the contractions back up.  And don't forget the apostrohe is key! We used the small circle clear Band-Aides for the apostrohe. 



In a couple days I will posting up my candy corn contractions craft and center activity...so check back soon!  Please let me know if you would like the fire safety book printable and the contraction cards I used for the surgery activity.  I have both on my school computer.
