Five for Friday {1st Timer =)}

Hi-ya Friends! Since I’m skipping my usual Friday evening nap to keep up with a tweenage sleepover, I thought I’d link up with DoodleBugs Teaching for my first Five for Friday!


These are actually a few of my fave random pics from the last couple of weeks because my iphone camera has finally given up on me! I suppose I’ll have to do something with the over 1200 pics on it to get it up and running again!

We’ve been having fun cutting up contractions. This week we also made a flipbook, but my kids snatched them up and took them home before I was able to snap a pic! Considering my iphone camera has had a ENOUGH of me, I guess I’ll have to catch the next one.

We’ve begun exploring editing and grammar during our morning message. Do you ever find yourself asking if you actually just said something out loud? If we really stop and think about some of the things we say during the course of the day, we’re really quite funny! As we were wrapping up this little discussion, I was doing everything to keep from falling apart laughing because I kept mentioning all the “missing periods”. I know…..geez! Next time, we’ll stick to capitalization or spelling, lol!

The kiddos have had a ball doing research using Pebblego. I absolutely love this site! It provides easy access to great nonfiction topics for students to research, gather data on, and even has an option for them to print a reflection sheet to show what they learned! This is one of my kiddos absolute faves and mine too….because it takes 0 prep time!

Today we celebrated the 100th day! And I lived to tell about it! Ha!

This one’s not school related at all, but it’s definitely one of my favorite pics from the week! I’ve been doing a little redecorating and *LOVE* how this little arrangement turned out. Why do builders insist upon putting windows right over the bathtub in neighborhoods where the houses are a spitting distance apart? It cost $0 because each of these babies were in the back of my closet!

Whooo hooo!  Have a great weekend and don’t forget to check out some of the other cute Five for Friday posts!


  1. Your comment about the things we say during the day cracked me up! This week, our Literacy Coach was in my room visiting/helping out with a group while the ECE teacher and I tested kiddos, and she told some kid to "give her the finger." I don't remember exactly what the context was, but I looked up and said to her "do you realize what you just said?" and repeated what she said. She and I both started laughing while the kids looked at us like we were crazy! I swear, I need to start writing this stuff down!

    I'm getting ready to start working on contractions soon. Ugh. I hate contractions!
