Our Space Week {with Freebie} and Currently

Hello friends! First off...March Currently from Farley

Some of these need an explanation:

Listening: my bulldog, Tank, loves his toys. He especially loves his teddy bear. He drags is all over the house and will lay on it while sucking on its head. It's totally adorable, but sometimes LOUD!

Needing: Our phone contract was finally up and we were ready to get some decent phones. I, however, am cheap. So when we went to Verizon and I saw the price tags on how much the phones were when renewing...we walked out.Yes, yes, I know, you are stuck with it for 2 years it might as well be a good one. I just couldn't do it. My hubby went searching on line and saw that Best Buy had the iPhone 5c for $50! We went and did that. I'm pretty excited, but am not iAnything savvy. So we shall see how this goes.

???? You have my answer...what do you think the question is? The first person to correctly answer in the comments (with their email) will get my unit that kinda goes along with it. :)

I have tons of pictures to share with you. I had more...but they are on my old phone and for some reason would transfer and are basically gone to me. 
 We made rockets. Their goal was to stay on green all week so their rocket didn't crash and they could make galaxy dough. Seriously the March Spring Craziness has already begun in my room. 
All that you need for galaxy dough. 1/4c salt, 1c flour, Kool-Aid packet and 1/4c water. Mix together and you have fruity smelling play dough. Add in some glitter for the space effect. My kids love this every year. I took pictures of them playing with it, but that's on the old phone. 

 This is an old favorite from a Mailbox book. I love adding their picture to it!

 Their writing this week was out of this world! I don't know where these writing papers came from. If you do, please let me know! They are fantastic!
 We added an alien to this one!

Our Space Morning Messages were a big hit!

Here are some things we did from my space unit: 
Write the room.

 Compound words with recording sheet.

 Emergent Reader

 Thematic Word Wall

 Space Interest Inventory Freebie

Oh and how I love that we can now use YouTube!
This one is my favorite:

This is my Space Playlist
The Storybot ones are awesome!

Here's a sneak peek at next week!

    Fun in ECSE

    1. You got it Kate! Email me and I will send you my 2 silly cat units!

    Fun and Fearless in First

  3. Awww-puppies and their toys! I wish I could get more cute one for my pup, but they need to be really sturdy to withstand her kind of play. :)


    1. I totally understand! Tank is really hard on most of his toys, except the soft ones. For some reason he sucks on them, even though he's almost 3!

  4. I *love* space themed activities! Thanks for posting so much stuff. The graph freebie is really cute and would be great for my ESL learners as well :)

    1. Thank you Char! I have SO much fun during our space week.

  5. Your space week looks like it was so much fun. Wish we did one. I love your shape rockets.

    1. Thanks Jenn! Our grade level has chosen to not use our reading series and teach thematic units. So much more fun and meaningful that way! I'm thankful we are able to make the choice to not use the reading series and do what we feel is best. :)

  6. My dog can't have toys---he eats everything! LOL
    Love your space stuff! Cute. I love my iphone 5c!! I just need a case for it so I don't break it!

    1. I got one of the polka dot ones they show with 5c that shows the color of the phone too. I like mine so far, but then I made the mistake of looking on ETSY. I found chevron of all colors and they are monogrammed! I'll be getting ones of those, too. :)

  7. Such a cute space unit! Thanks for linking up at Life Over C's


I {puffy heart} love reading your comments!
