Five for Friday: Applesauce, STEM...


Am I the only one that felt this week seemed to be 10 days long!  TGIF!

 Check out this week's Five for Friday linky!


Applesauce - Normally I make applesauce with my students a little later in the fall.  This year, I made it today.  Our students have been getting a lot of apples at breakfast, lunch, and fruit times.  There have been tons of leftovers that I have been scavenging to avoid having to buy the apples myself. It worked well since this week we have focused on sequencing and I had a handout where they had to sequence the steps in making the applesauce.  Sometimes everything comes together!

Donors Choose - My Donors Choose project was funded and I already started receiving some of the items!  Woo-hoo!  It's like Christmas!  Once I get everything, I will post pics!


Flag - For 9/11, I had my students work together to create a giant flag for the hallway.  I didn't realize how something that looked so easy could be so difficult.  Overall, it came out well (except the one little blue stripe in the wrong place).  

FYI - This was a free download I found on TPT.


STEM Fridays - Last Friday I started STEM Fridays.  Each week would be a different activity.  This week we did one based on The Three Little Pigs.  The students had to work in groups to build homes with "magic toothpicks."  This was really tough.  I had one group begging me to let them go on YouTube to find a video to solve this problem.  We definitely need to work on our creativity skills!
