Five for Friday

Friday, again?



My new case
My IPEVO Wishpool wish came today. I am in love with my new iPad case. Seriously. I love it. I was carrying it around with me for most of the day. One of my friends was teasing me about it. She joked that it even matched my shirt. Expect photos soon.

This week was all about fractions! I bought more fraction clip art than I care to admit this week. Bring on the fraction activities!


I’ve just posted this pack. We’ve broken up our fraction unit into two parts. This pack covers the fraction identification piece. Number lines are big in third grade and with common core, so I’ve included that as well.


More fractions!
At the FCTM conference last October I went to every fraction session I could find! One of the activities I saw was fractions on an open number line.


I bought all this great fraction clip art, so I made these fraction outfits to practice on the line.
I’ll be adding this to my store once I create a few worksheets for my class…and to finish the pack.

Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!
I have a secret. 

I’m not a big fan of the Dr. with a birthday this week. It isn’t that I don’t like his books. I just don’t feel the need to spend an excessive amount of time on in them.

I know. You can start throwing stones now!

I vaguely remember being so excited about my first copy of Hop on Pop. Then I remember asking my mom what the whole thing was actually about. At seven I was concerned about a lack of plot.
I was a bit of an odd child that way!


The Irishman is still getting over his cold, but this cold has to do with the weather! We are getting the longest, coldest weather of the year this week. I can’t wait! Florida cold is nothing to most of you, but I’ll take it!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Wow! I love the fractions stuff. While it is over my firsties heads, it looks great. :)

  2. So fun! Glad we found each other...thanks for stopping by :)

  3. I just found your cute blog. I've been looking at all your posts and I just love how hands on you look! Those "upper" grade kiddos still need those types of activities too. :)

  4. LOL On the Dr. secret! I'm a fan of The Lorax, so we will be doing activities that have to do with loving the Earth...and some other small things.
    I just got into it last year.
    Fractions look fun!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  5. Good to know that someone else can resist the urge to celebrate big. I read two books on Friday, that was it. Hope you have a great week.
