5 for Friday!!

This is my first time participating and I am super excited!

Number 1

 Lovely snow day selfie! :-P

  Rocco's first snow-He LOVED it! (Especially eating it!)


Number 2
I am almost done with Mid Year Assessments. I have to do writing with the whole class and then it is finished!!!!! My Reading 3D is done. (For now anyway. Next week we are back to Progress Monitoring, but I shall feel joy for the moment.) No need to say more. 

Number 3
My BLOG!! So, I am pretty new to the blogging scene. I have been reading up on tips and really trying to get my life together with my blog. :-) I have made a goal for myself to work on posting at least 1 time per week. I have found out that blogging actually brightens my day and lifts my spirits. It is just nice to try something new and gain a new hobby. I have also become so much more aware of the teacher blogging community and learned A LOT just in the last 2 weeks. Thank you fellow bloggers for all of your great resources and thoughts!

Number 4
TpT! I know my 5 this week is so far consisting of my new obsessions. I have been stuck at home all week and really haven't even seen my students or classroom. I will give them more shout-outs next week! LOL! 

So, not only have I been trying to learn about blogging, but I have been working on some new products for my TpT Store. I have dedicated a whole entire blog post to what I have been working on and will post it later.

Number 5
New Word Work options for Daily 5. I did steal all of these ideas, but they were so cute and my students got a chance to explore them all today while I finished up my testing.

Last, Mini Boggle Boards School Day Love

A big thanks to all of the people for sharing these awesome ideas with the rest of us!! 

So, that is my first Five for Friday. I am going to be looking at all these other amazing posts for inspiration for the future! Have a restful weekend!


  1. My kiddos LOVE boggle boards, and I always am so impressed with the words that they find!
