Five for Friday 10/11

Things are finally getting into a routine at school so hopefully I will have more time to blog, but for now here is my five for Friday!  I love linking up to Doodle Bugs for their weekly linky party!  It has been quite a week!
First, the past two weeks haven't been the easiest.  My grandmother, Nanny, fell last Tuesday and we have been on hospital watch since then, knowing that she wouldn't recover :(  She passed away to join her husband and daughter last Saturday night.  This week we were able to celebrate her life surrounded by friends and families.  I wanted to share this photo of her at my wedding last year.  How lucky I was to have her at our wedding, but I wish she had just smiled at the camera!  We tried so many times and she kept turning around to talk :)  She will truly be missed.
I am loving math this year... as I feel like I have mentioned before.  Below are a few pictures of my kiddos at math centers:
At this center, the are playing "guess the number"  This was a great activity to help them describe the numbers!

This activity had them cut out different formats of numbers and decide if they were odd an even.  I had a cheat sheet for them to refer to, but they did a great job!

Here is the game Abracadabra!  They need to roll two dice and add them together.  They then remove a marker off their board that is in the column of that sum.  The first person to make their board disappear wins!

This is a fun fall activity.  They simply roll the dice, add them together and the color in the fall item.

At the teacher table this week, we worked on tens and ones.  We made the numbers using cubes and then compared them.

They loved counting by fives by stacking the cups in order.  They liked to see how fast they could do it.

All of these math centers, plus two more weeks of centers are available in my TPT store.  It is my Number Sense Unit.

I took today off to recover from the week's events and happened to have time to finally put my sight word units up on TPT.  I have been using them in my classroom and they have been ready, but I hadn't finalized them for sharing.  You can check out my whole sight word unit at my store, but you can also see there are 18 smaller units.
Here are some screen shots of what you would be getting:

It's on sale for the weekend!  Head over and get it!  My math unit is also for sale!
Who watches Homeland?  That is the highlight of my week right now!  I love that show!  We  also just found Brooklyn nine-nine with Andy Samburg.  If you need a good laugh, check it out :)
Its been raining in Virginia for three days now... and it looks like it will go on for the rest of the weekend.  I do love rainy days, its relaxing and soothing I think.  Hopefully the sun will come out soon though!  Until then, I plan on enjoying the coziness of a rainy day!

Have a great Columbus Day weekend!
