Late Night 5 for {Freebie} Friday

Can I ever post a blog-post before midnight?
It's Friday and I actually have things to talk about so I'm going to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday Linky Party.  


#1) Nashville has been re-runs lately, so I'm getting my drama-fix from Dallas.  Woow, it's great right now.  To begin, I'm from Dallas, so it has a special place in my heart.  
Second, I have the slightest crush on Bobby Ewing....
and now, John Ross Ewing (yummy).  

#2)  I got my April Scholastic Flyers today.  I saw a book I cannot wait to get!
It's a poetry book about dog names...I L-O-V-E names!  
And I really need help teaching poetry.  I hope I can find some PD this summer on poetry. 

#3)  I got an iPad over Spring Break, but I can barely use it because My Girl has it in her hands about 80% of the time!  On the upside...she's reading some word families now:)

#4) I WANT TO SLEEP IN TOMORROW (yes I'm yelling in a whiney voice)...but I have to teach Saturday School:(  

*Sorry I cannot get this Pic to Rotate*
 

#5) Today, my kiddos played 2 Games - first, prefix/suffix baseball (I'm sure all of you play baseball at some point or another so I won't bore you with it).  Second, we played "Who's My Character?'  This is a higher level thinking game where students draw conclusion and implement their questioning skills.  Students first generate questions about who their character is.  I put a character from a well known book, tv show or kid-friendly movie on a label and put it on their back.  Then, they walk around and ask their classmates questions.  Finally, they draw a conclusion about who their character is.

I have been meaning to watch Nashville. I haven't got around to it yet. :) The dog book looks so cute.
Have a great Saturday, even though you have to work.

I am anxiously awaiting a new Nashville!!!!!

I loooove that guess my character I am going to super-model that and adapt for 1st grade. My kids are rocking story elements so I feel like they could pull it off if it were guided enough. Thank you!!!
