Five for Friday!

  Seeing as I didn't get around to blogging earlier this week, I thought I would link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching, and Five For Friday!
Where to start?  I guess Sunday is good.  It came too soon, but the weather was oh, so nice.  My girlie and I went and played some soccer - and by playing soccer I mean, kicking the ball around and resting for a bit.  It was fun.  In this photo, she thought she was being cute and tried to get me with the ball as I was taking the picture.  Ha!  Little did she know I have ninja reflexes - and that ball was sent flying (okay maybe not flying, but it didn't hit me).
 This week, I wanted to get something up on their writing wall.  So we wrote about the steps to make a PB&J sandwich.  My plan was to bring in the real items to make a sandwich in front of them, but I forgot - doh!  But thankfully WikiHow saved the day.  We were able to watch a video after we discussed what we needed, and then we wrote the steps together.  They are so yummy looking!
 This week, we also had BTS night.  It was late this year, but I had all but 3 parents show.  We had a lot to go over, and let me tell you, it was nice to only have one grade level to talk about!
 As I was walking out to recess, I saw my kiddos cubbies and I couldn't help but love the way they looked!  I have 2 very responsible 5th graders that come in during their recess and help me.  OH. MY. GOODNESS.  I am so thankful for them.  I can give them directions ONCE, and they go!  They help me so much!!
 And lastly, my kiddos have been loving their Language Notebooks.  They are loving making, sorting, gluing, etc. the different activities.  We even went over how we can use these when we are waiting for the next activity - they were floored!  "You mean, we can do the sorting over and over?" YES!  Nothing better!
I am so looking forward to the weekend and finally putting together some of the items that are on my TPT list.  Wishing you all a restful weekend!  And Happy Friday!
