Want a Peek at My Week?

I am linking up with the fabulous Deedee from Mrs. Wills Kindergarten for the Peek at My Week Linky.  This is my first time linking up.  :)

Without further ado, here is the peek at my week:

You can click on the images above to take a closer look.  At this moment, I am still finishing up my Alphabet Crash game and All About me book.  Those items will be posted to Teachers Pay Teachers later today!!  (Alphabet Crash will be a freebie :)  So be on the lookout.

Our theme for the week is names, but on Monday we have to finish up our color unit. (We had heat days)  We are going to have a "Student of the Day" each day until everyone has had a turn.  I will be posting more about the "Student of the Day" later this week.

As you can tell, I am SLOWLY introducing literacy centers right now.  We learned all about "Read to Self" last week and now we are building our stamina.  This week I am introducing "Word Work" with a fun simple game "Alphabet Crash".  

On Wednesday, we have a half day of school.  The second half of the day is teacher professional development.  It is going to be all about Common Core.  Our district is implementing Common Core this year (some teacher already started implementing last year on their own....like me :).  We will find out our district's "plan" for CCSS implementation on Wednesday.  I am looking forward to that.  

I am off to watch my son's soccer game then do some printing, laminating, and cutting.  Have a great week everyone!


  1. I love Chrysanthemum! So many different and fun activities you can do with that book. We are implementing common core too. Lots to do!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I've been doing Student of the Day (Star Student) for 3 weeks now and it's FINALLY our last week! I never realize how much time it actually takes for everyone to get a turn :)

    You were smart to introduce lit. stations at the same time!

    Have a good week!

  4. I always want to link up for this, but you know, that would require me being way more planned out than I am currently... lol Love your plans, thanks for sharing! :) We are introducing Word Work slowly as well- we should compare D5 notes, it's my first year using it!
