Five For Friday

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday!  Once again, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for a little Five for Friday Fun!



My bestie and I needed a quick craft on Tuesday and I remembered this super cute Earth Day handprint craft that I saw on Pinterest.  I quickly made a circle template, sent my assistant down to the art teacher to wrangle up some green paint, and got to work doing handprints.  That afternoon I called a small group over to finish painting their Earths.


We also wrote about how what we could do to to help take care of the Earth.  Can I just say I love invented spelling?  Love it!!!



Today during prep I was able to put all the sentences and Earths on my bulletin board outside my room.



We worked on ways to make 10 this week.  I used a cookie sheet and some magnetic counters to show different ways to make 10 and had the students give me the addition sentence to go with my display.  They then had to give me the "partner" problem.  I made this super simple chart while we completed this activity.


Today we made this Combinations of 10 book that I made a couple of years back.  The students had to color the flowers and write the addition problem that went with the pictures.  You can get this freebie {here}.




So ever have those days when you just need a cupcake?  Well, I do and that day this week was Wednesday.  I let my husband know after dinner that I was running down to the little cupcake shop down the street for a cupcake.  The top right cupcake was for my son.  I had a bite of it and it was ok.  Wednesday night I ate the strawberry cupcake and it was so delicious!  I don't know if you can tell, but it even had edible glitter!  Last night I ate the red velvet and it was good too.  My fav was definitely the strawberry.  I thought about stopping by there on my way home tonight for another, but I held out.  Maybe tomorrow.  ;)



My son came to school with me yesterday for Take Your Child to Work Day!  He was so excited! For many years he has wanted to come to "Mommy's school" and he finally got the chance.  He helped with a variety of classroom activities and even taught my students a song in sign language.  One of my parents came up to me today to tell me her son said it was so much fun to have Colton in the classroom and he wished he could come every day.  Melted my heart!



This video is one of my students' newest favorite brain breaks!



Thanks for joining me for another round of Five For Friday!
