Top 5 Freebies 1/11/2014

Happy Saturday! We just completed our first full week after winter break. It felt good to finally have a full normal week. We spent the week taking the NJ Benchmark assessments, completing Fountas and Pinnell reading assessments, as well as diving into our study of penguins and folk tales. Obviously, the assessments weren’t exactly fun, but I LOVE to see the growth my kiddos are making. Stop back tomorrow to see what we’ve done so far with our fables and folk tales unit.


Until then, check out this week’s freebies!Top 5 freebies pic
