"High Five" for Friday

Busy, busy, BUSY!!!!!

I have been dying to jump in on the Five for Friday linky hosted by Doodle Bugs Teaching for For.Ev.Er. but could just not seem to find the time to do it.

Finally...I chose to post instead of sleep found some spare time to share with you five snapshots from my week.

We have been working on commas in a series. My kiddos are obsessed with this grammar skill now. No idea why... but if it makes them write then I am all for it!

This week, Christmas came early in my room!!! My small group table and a mailbox/messenger center were delivered. AND, they started working on the electric for my SmartBoard. YAY!!!!I was just a tad excited. 

My little friend "Boo" is a recent Dollar Tree find. He has been making appearances and telling fall and Halloween related jokes to the kids. 

We are working on our graphing unit. Since I am technology-less at the moment, I decided to do coordinate graphs on the floor. The kids have had a ball with the life size coordinate graphing plane.

I will wrap up today with this beauty of a photo. It touches a soft spot in my heart. Our class went on a field trip to the corn maze. I turned around and two of my girlies were walking through the maze this way, and I just knew I had to sneak a picture. THIS is one of the things that we need to help our students embrace! I am thankful for the opportunity to be a teacher and to work with students who continually bless my life and remind me to smile, love, laugh, and LIVE!

Happy Friday, friends. I wish you a wonderful and relaxing weekend.


  1. Don't feel bad, it's been a while since I've participated in Five for Friday. By the time Friday evening rolls around, all I want to do is hit my bed! You will LOVE your smartboard. I couldn't imagine not having mine! There are just so many things you can do with it. Hope you have a great weekend!
