Five for Friday with a FREEBIE!



This is one of my fav things about Friday! Five For Friday!
1-On Wednesday, my kiddos made a chick and wrote a story about it. The stories were so cute! One little girl's story began with "I took my chicken to church. She sang gospel songs very loudly." Another student began his with  "I took my chick to Walmart to get chicken tenders".
2-We had an Easter egg hunt yesterday. Each student brought 12 plastic eggs. I numbered each egg 1-12. I tossed the eggs out. As they hunted the eggs, each child had to pick up numbers  1 through 12. It seemed to take FOREVER but they really enjoyed it! In years past, they would only want the eggs they brought from home. Yesterday, they were just glad to find the correct numbers :)
3-We were out today for Good Friday. These boys were pumped to be out of school!
4-I LOVE Easter!
5- Freebie- If you would like to download this, click here or on the pic.  I hope your students enjoy this!

My husband wants his MacBook back so he gave me his ipad. I can not seem to get the hang of Keynote on the ipad. Do any of you use Keynote on ipad? Is it possible??? I'm starting to think it's a dud.

Let's Get Acquainted Linky!


Flying Into First is hosting a "Let's Get Acquainted" Linky Party. I'm a little late on this. I guess it's better late than never... :)
Share 3 things about yourself that you like or like to do using your initials.

C-Christian- I am a follower of Christ! 

P-Philosophy- I love philosophy soap. Amazing Grace is my favorite!!

L-Little House on the Prarie- I loved watching this show when I was a little girl. I still enjoy it! My house watches a lot of older tv shows, except for Duck Dynasty. Gotta love Uncle Si!

My class participated in First Grade Carousel's Winter Exchange. Classrooms from all over the country sent in a craft and letter telling about winters in their area. Since we live in the south, we have rainy winters. My room sent a rain craft. It seemed to rain every other day this winer. Yuck! After receiving our packet, I sent a photo to our local newspaper of my students holding crafts and letters we received. We made front page of the paper yesterday! YAY!! 

Oh my! Only one more day to be lazy then it's back to work I go... I do enjoy those babies but I think I need an extra week to relax!

Five for Friday!

I LOVE seeing Five for Friday posts! ...usually...Not so happy today because it reminds me that my spring break is coming to a close. :(
1-Spring Break!-My family didn't go a vacation. We decided to do nothing at home. Nothing sounds SO good!!!
2-Sam has wanted extra money this week to buy toys, ice cream, or anything to get him out of the house. I told him I would give him money to help clean up his room. He decides to pull two teeth instead. I guess it's easier for the tooth fairy to hook him up! (I'm pretty sure they were loose last week.)

3-I've decided to use this thing again. I feel better already. :)
4-The weather is so nice here today! I got a flower bed cleaned out this morning. I'm not an outside person so this is a big deal for me!
5-Vickie has posted great St. Patrick's Day activities! I am so happy I ran across her blog today!

Happy 1st Blogiversary to my blog! Can't believe it's been a year!

Enjoy your weekend!!

This weekend went by quickly!.. Last night was our annual Pilot Father/Daughter banquet. It was so sweet watching those little girls drag those daddies around on the dance floor!

One more week until spring break! I think we can make it...On Wednesday night, I will be going with a few of my co-workers out of town to a conference. This will be my first night away from my husband and boys. Should be interesting...

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!....Currently directions

 My school began our Dr. Seuss unit yesterday. Before the bell rang to begin school, the principal led everyone into singing "Happy Birthday" to Dr. Seuss. It was sweet! After my kiddos took test, my room was all about Cat in the Hat. We read the book, watched a small video of it, and made a few things...Each grade is having a "Dr. Seuss Door Contest". The winners get an ice cream party. My door matches my neighbor's door. Here's the before pics. We plan on adding a few things to it next week. I will post after pics soon.
