What Friday Linky!

What I love to teach??? Oh man that's a hard one! I believe my favorite thing to teach is anything that involves science, literacy, and math. I love literature focus units/thematic units where you can work on all subject areas. This week I actually did some fun stuff with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

On Mondays is when I like to usually do a craft, that way we can display it through the week and the kids can take home on Friday. I found an adorable craft from Deanna Jump's  Literacy and Math Fun With Names. This is a great bundle for back to school. (I failed to not get a pic of the cuteness of the craft but my goodness it was cute! It was a coconut tree with the letters of the their name in the tree)

I then found an awesome Chicka Chicka bundle from the Kindergarten Smorgasbord. It had everything you need for math and literacy centers. My kids loved the letter hunt the most. They got so excited about it!

I then busted out the science!

We did a coconut investigation! I brought a coconut and they had to form a hypothesis of whether they thought it would sink/float..I also let them do a coconut milk taste test and we composed a class graph to show our data of who did and didn't like the coconut milk. It was so fun!

We are coconuts about Kindergarten!

  1. I love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom - one of my favorites! What a cute graphing idea, I am going to have to give that a try when we start school in a few weeks!
