Five for Friday

I am linking up Doodle Bug Teaching in the Five for Friday linky party.  I see this linky every week, but have never jumped in.  Today's the day!

1.  My class celebrated Nevada Reading Week.  My favorite activity every year is Reading Bingo!  It's a fun way for the whole school to participate in an activity at the same time!

2.  I used liquid watercolors for the first time this week.  I am in love!  I will never use the Prang watercolors again.  {Sorry Prang - You have been a friend to me since I was in First Grade, but I have now found a new friend.}  My art teacher let me borrow some to make our reading week door decorations. {You can see a pic here.}  However, I now want my own set!  Off to buy some this weekend!  The picture below shows the kind that I used.  They even have glitter watercolors.  Um, yes please!

These  watercolors can be found here.
3.  My students and I have been working on the Math Common Core Standard K.OA.A.4 - For any number 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10.  I found a great idea on Pinterest, and it lead me to Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher.  She has a great Rainbow to 10 freebie!  You can get it for yourself here.  Teri always has great ideas!  Jump over and I'm sure you will find lots to love!

4.  I took today off to go to my son's school.  I had so much fun reading to both his Autism class and his gen-ed class!  I read Froggy Goes to Hawaii and Roger the Jolly Pirate.

5.  After I dropped my son off at school, I had some time before I had to go back to read.  I decided that Target is always a good place to spend a little time.  I found my absolute favorite Easter candy on the shelves.  I wait all year long to find these yummy memories of my youth!

I hope you had a wonderful Friday!  I know I did!
