Five For Friday!

It's Friday and it's a 3 day weekend!!  Whoop Whoop!!  Only 9.5 days of school left too!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

My best friend, and 2nd grade team mate is the mother to the cutest and sweetest 2 year old I know!  Well, when Riley was born, she was born with only part of her left arm but she hasn't skipped a beat yet!  Her mom has entered in her a contest with Parents Magazine to be on the cover where "Difference Should be Celebrated" and I would like to ask you to go vote for her!  This morning she was in 15th place, but let's see if we can get her to #1!  Click the picture below.  You can vote once daily on each device you have - phone, ipad, computer...

I don't know about you, but when I was in college I started my checklists towards the end of each semester to make sure I had everything done...well I do that as a teacher too!  I'm sure this list will get longer before it's done, but I LOVE checking things off my to-do list!

What a better way to practice spelling words on a beautiful and warm morning than to go outside and practice writing them with sidewalk chalk!  We practiced our words and picture coded one word from our list and now everyone can see our spelling words as they walk down the sidewalk!  The favorite word to picture code this week was...BACON!

Well, we had field day on Thursday and boy did we have fun!  After playing all morning outside and inside, we had Chick-Fil-A for hot lunch, and then all went to the gym to watch Frozen.  We more so had a Frozen sing-a-long!  I know the kids and teachers had a great day!

This year I've had the pleasure of having a wonderful first grade TA come help me in the afternoon during math for about an hour each day.  I wanted to thank her for "pitching" in so I go her a big pitcher, some lemonade, and three insulated "party" cups as a thank you gift.  The labels are from What the Teacher Wants if you want to grab them!

Have a great Friday y'all!!
