Five for Friday

Ahhh, Friday!


ONE: Sick kids

I was missing 7 of 18 kids by the end of the day today! There is a bug that has worked its way through my classroom. Thursday afternoon I had the cleaning crew disinfect my room after our attempt with wipes and sprays. I’m praying that I don’t get it!

I opted NOT to start a lesson on fractions and instead started a football themed contest on SumDog. They LOVED it! Some of the kids that were in class today posted on Edmodo to updated their friends who were out about what they missed.

TWO: Possessive Pets

I have been working on these possessive noun task cards for months now. I decided last week to put it in my student teacher’s plan. My class tried it out this week.


I finished fixing it up and got it posted to my TpT store this evening. Check it out!

THREE: Great Purchases

I bought Amy Lemon’s My Book of Fractions this week. I have had the students make fraction bars the last couple of years, but they always get lost and students with poor motor skills tend to end up with a mess. This book was perfect! Instead of staples I punched holes and used paper fasteners (aka brads) to make the book. The students can pull them apart to compare pages, but they store neatly without lost pages. I love it!

I love everything I’ve ever bought from Amanda. I have several of her metacognitive products. My students made their own tool boxes this week that I have bound into little books to store their handouts. I’d planned to take pictures, but I forgot. I’ll blog more about this later. I am so excited about this unit!

FOUR: The Lists

I have always been a list maker. Since my student teacher started taking over though, I have gone into list overdrive! I really got a lot done this week, but I am going to have to stop volunteering to do things. These lists are growing!

FIVE: Super Sale!

I’m taking part in the Super Sunday Sale! Be sure to stop by my store and take a look!

Have a great weekend!

  2. Some days I cannot function unless I make a list. I tend to walk around in circles and get so distracted until I look at my list, lol!! I love your cute blog design:)
