Five for Friday - April 26

I'm finally back with my favorite post of the week, Five for Friday by Doodle Bugs Teaching!

I missed the past 2 weeks, because we moved onto base housing!  Sometimes base housing can be not that great, but ours is really nice and brand spanking new!  Here's my new kitchen.

Which is only 1,000 times better than the very small kitchen in the very expensive, very small house we were temporarily renting before.  

We're still not all unpacked, but honestly, that's going to have to wait till summer.  Until now, we're just enjoying this fabulous view when we drive out of our neighborhood (did I mention you can see the ocean from all of the bedrooms?).

And I have to take a moment to brag, my sweet Kylie was Citizen of the Month.  So proud of her!

We've started working on word families and I'm using materials from this Ready 2 Read Unit by The Moffatt Girls.  I love her stuff!  So many great activities.  We started with just the -at family.  

That was going pretty well UNTIL I introduced the -an family this week!  Oh my!  We're gonna needs lots and lots of practice working on reading these skills.  I decided my students need practice just listening to the words and deciding if it's an -at or -an family word.  Right now, I'm working on this mini-unit to help them out.  I hope to have it done this weekend, because they need to get busy with the extra practice ASAP!

Hope everyone has a good weekend!  I'm mostly ready to sleep.  Sooooo wore out this week.


  1. I like the small and simple activity for finding the word family. You can put numerous sheets together and it doesn't appear as much work to the kids because of the size of paper. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am so happy you love your new housing. I must say I am a bit jealous you have an ocean view! Good luck getting everything in order. Now you can relax and bit more and enjoy Hawaii :)

  4. Cabinets of superior quality are composed of thicker plywood or solid wood boards and last a lifetime. You may order cabinets to complete your kitchen's layout. But you should purchase the quality Blue Kitchen Cabinets when you can afford for your new kitchen because it should last a lifetime.
