Show and Tell Bags

I love hearing all about the kids and what they love.....and they LOVE to tell you about themselves.  I'm linking up with Tara for her Monday Made It, so I can share this little freebie with you. Thank you Tara for bringing all these wonderful ideas to one place.  
Inferencing can be tricky to teach but if we are talking and thinking about it with the things that are most important to the kids then maybe we can make it easier for them.  This activity is, Show and Tell, using clues to help the kids (and teachers) to get to know each other.  This activity also has friend cards that they can fill out and take home to share something they learned about each classmate. You can pick it up at my TPT store.

It's been a busy week but I've accomplished..........nothing crafty (boo!). I've tried to get back in my running routine and my little sass wanted to run with me. sweet, I'm thinking she's probably going to slow me down but that's okay because we are doing it together. :)  Boy, was I wrong........this was my view for the entire mile.
She's going to make me work!!  The rest of my week was spent watching my big sass (yea, he's sassy in a boy way;) play baseball.  I love to watch him pitch!!

Friends, we are running out of Mondays before school starts-I've gotta get busy!!
Have a fantastic night!!


  1. Ahhh! I need to run again too! Ran all summer and then went on my mini vacay and haven't run in 5 days!!!!! Yikes! Ok, your getting to know you cards are just adorable! I can't wait to use them! Going to get them now:) Thanks for sharing and linking up! We are running out of time...waaaaaaaah! lol
