Five for Friday

I'm linking up with Doodlebugs for Five for Friday this week.  Here's what I've been up to lately...

We've had some "snow" days around here this week and I tried to use that time wisely.  I organized our new listening center a bit.  I'll be blogging ALL about it tomorrow, but here's a glimpse.

It's was Teacher Appreciation week at my school and I was in hog heaven with Sharpies, Flair pens, colored cardstock, and highlighters.  Teacher Heaven, I tell ya!

I also started planning a new little blog series that I hope to get underway next week.  It'll be all about how I lesson plan - the smart way!

The couple of days we were in school, we started our U.S. Regions unit. I just love "traveling" through the USA collecting photos and souvenirs to make our scrapbooks.  Such a learning treasure!

And, of course, I my mind was blown along with everyone else's this week in regard to #thatdress!  Things that I can't understand DRIVE ME CRAZY!!  Like obsessively.  I cannot understand how this dress is NOT blue and black to everyone!  Since we were learning about line plots in our classroom, I took a little independent poll of my students and we plotted the results together.  I was a little shocked that 100% of my students saw the dress as blue/black.  YES!  #teamblackandblue

Go link up with Doodlebugs and give us a peek at your week!


  1. I love the way you organized your earbuds. I'm off to pin you photo!

  2. Ha! I totally saw white and gold! Then someone showed me another picture and it was black and blue! CRAZY! I love the markers! There is nothing quite like the feeling of opening a new pack of markers. Except for maybe a new, cute pad of post-its:)
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Your number #2 pic looks awesome! I have enough school supplies to last the rest of my career, yet still find myself wanting more. It's crazy! Love your past blog series - can't wait for this one! Jen

  4. I'm Team Gold and White lol! But I've seen a pic where it looks more black & blue so who knows. When our class votes, they often all want to vote the same way. Seems unlikely that all the kids saw black and blue? But who knows! :)

    1. Crazy, right! My kids always vote the same way, too, which is why I took them into the hall to do this independently and THEN shared and plotted the results with them! Interesting, huh?


Thanks for visiting my blog and sharing ideas! I love to read your comments. I like to reply back by email, so make sure you have that option enabled so we can chat! :)
