Five for Friday - Random Fall Fun

TGIF, friends!  I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

This week, we learned all about fire safety and began our new fall centers!

On Monday, I introduced the kiddos to this fun Extinguish the Letters/Sounds game!  I called out a letter or sound, and the students had a blast trying to be the first one to "extinguish the letter" by slapping it with the fire extinguisher!

It's from my I Can Read October Poetry Binder, which you can read all about here!

Plus, we played a "sizzling" sight word game, completed this Firefighter Circle Map,

AND, in the words of one of my sweet students, we got to meet a real, live firefighter!

This week, I changed my centers out to include some fall fun!  Here's a sneak peek at what's in a few of our center tubs.

We practiced making five with our double-sided counters, tracing and graphing shapes, as well as analyzing data, rhyming, and identifying color words.

Find these and many more fall activities in my Fall Frenzy pack!

Don't forget to check out this post to see why C is a magic letter!

The kiddos were super intrigued by this lesson!  I can't wait to share it with all of you!

My sweet friends, Karen and Kelly, from Kennedy's Korner are celebrating a major TpT milestone with a giveaway!  Just look at all these fabulous bloggers who contributed to the celebration!
The giveaway ends tomorrow, so you still have time to enter!

And for number five, I leave you with another fun find!  I grabbed these Halloween erasers from the One Spot at Target!  They were only $1.00 for 50 erasers!  Plus, I am planning to use them as math manipulatives, game markers, and sound chips in some Halloween themed elkonin boxes.

I hope you found some randomness you could use in your classroom!  Enjoy your weekend!
