Five for Friday!!

It's Friday! Yippie!!
Another week is in the books.  I don't know about you but it felt like it flew by!
 
I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to bring you 5 for Friday!

First things first, this happened this week--- yes, that's my "baby" and he's eating pizza--all by himself--like a big boy! Ummm, when did this happen???  My baby isn't such a baby anymore! It's kind of sad but also kind of nice how independent he is becoming lately!
 This also happened this week---do you see a small amount of white stuff on our grass?  Yeah, that would be snow!  Granted, it was only a trace but still---who has snow 7 days before may?  I mean really.....is Winter over yet?  I'm ready for Spring and Summer!
I also finished my newest creation this week!! It has 5 different activities all pertaining to addition.  My kids needs tons of practice and I thought this would be perfect for them! Turtles are my favorite animal and when I saw this cutie I couldn't resist using it for the cover!!
This week my kiddos made cube's during our study of 3D shapes!! They got to decorate them any way they wanted and they loved it!
Have you ever seen the game scoot?  My friend introduced me to it and it's so cute and easy and great way to review or assess!  Here are a few I've made:
Next week I'll be blogging about my class doing theses.  Basically, you have 26 cards and you place them around your room in some sort of order.  Students take their recording sheet with them and they stand at a card.  They write the answer to the card on the coordinating square on their sheet.  When time is up (usually 30 seconds to a minute) the teacher says "scoot" and the students move over one spot to the next card.  Repeat this process until all cards have been answered!  It's a great activity to review a topic with your class or to do a quick assessment.  It also gets the kids up and moving and that's always a great thing!! 
 
Enjoy you weekend! Hopefully you have nice spring-like weather!!

  1. Oh my gosh- I can't believe you had snow! Terrible! It's time for sunshine and tulips, not snow. Yuck!! Glad your weather has warmed up since then. :)
