Five for Friday: Crafty business, fun in the sun and Mr. Chicken!

Another week bites the dust!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs to share some random moments with Five for Friday.

1. We got our craft on this week!

We made these colourful cupcake wrapper fish (for letter f).

And some cute birdies in a paper plate nest (for letter n).

We also experimented with printing by rolling paint onto leaves of different shapes and sizes.

2. The gorgeous Autumn sunshine was too nice to stay inside!

We practised letter formation with chalk on the concrete paths...

...and played Sight Word Hopscotch!

3. Every year this book makes me giggle:

Mr. Chicken Goes to Paris, written by Leigh Hobbs, is perfect for reading without showing the pictures first.  I always ask the kidlets to visualise Mr. Chicken travelling around Paris enjoying the sights.

They always laugh when they see just what Mr. Chicken looks like!  

4. You might have read my post about our Frozen themed fine motor activity this week.  Meet our little family of Olafs! :)

5. I've decided that being a Prep/Kindergarten teacher is just code for 'hoarder'

I spent an hour this afternoon before I left school sorting out these 2 shelves... Let's just not talk about the rest of my storeroom space or my office!

I'm off to get my weekend started - with apple pie and custard!  Happy Friday friends. :)



  1. Sight word hopscotch! Great idea. I'm so stealing this idea for next week :)

  2. Lauren, I LOVE the fish! AND Mr. Chicken Goes to Paris! I've never heard of that book. It looks so cute I bet the kids love it! :) Happy Weekend!

  3. Lauren, I love all your craft projects. How fun! I also need to tell you that all teachers are secretly hoarders! Jealous of your pleasant autumn weather- it is now getting to be 90 degrees in Alabama everyday!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

    1. Thanks Carol!

      We are very lucky to have gorgeous weather all year here - I just sat outside to drink my coffee and the morning sun was burning my leg! Looks like a perfect day for the beach. :)


  4. Love those Olafs!! It has inspired me to change up the way I structure my writing lessons.

  5. I have to laugh at your comment about being a kindergarten teacher/hoarder! I seriously need to clean out my classroom! I only have 8 more days until summer vacation, so clean-up day is very close! :-)


Thanks for popping by!
