Five for Friday

So, technically it's not Friday.  However, I am still up so I am going to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the weekly Five for Friday Linky Party.

1.  My students have been working on their sight words with a fun twist this week.  We are beginning to study weather and when I saw this pin about a month ago, I knew I wanted to do it with my class.  Here is my version of writing rainbow sight words.

2.  My students earned a popcorn party and were thrilled when this showed up in our classroom.  We finished our day with a video and some popcorn.

*I don't have pics for the next two things, but I still want to share.  :)

3.  Today was our day to take cap and gown pictures of the Kindergarten and fifth grade students.  My Kinders looked so cute in their little caps and gowns.  I can't wait to see all of the pictures when they come back in a few weeks!

4.  I have been working with a small group of students from my class and my bestie's class.  We have been working on getting letter sounds down pat.  When I tested them today, each student improved their scores (and by a lot).  I am so proud of each of them!

5.  My final part of my Five for Friday has nothing to do with school.  It has to do with this picture that my husband sent me.  I saw it when I got my phone out of my purse at lunch time.

See the pile of rubber on the top of the engine.  Yep - that's my husband's drive belt - destroyed.  And joy of all joys, it broke another part when it broke.  And when I say part, I mean an expensive part.  And you guessed it - recently out of warranty.  :(  It looks like my husband is going to looking for a new car.  I feel so bad for him because he loves his sporty car (most of the time), but it's not worth it (to him) to fix it up.  The worst thing about the whole situation is that we found out the drive belt broke because the mechanics at the dealership didn't put a bolt in correctly.  The bolt ended up on the pan and it caused the belt to break.  I'm not looking forward to car shopping.  We are ones who usually research for weeks/months before we buy a car.  Wish us luck.  lol

  1. So sorry to hear about your husband's car. Something similar happened to my car last year and I ended up having to get a new car. My husband and I still yell at the place that ruined my car every time we drive by it (we are very mature). Good luck car shopping!

    1. Thank you! I love the idea of yelling at the place. lol


  2. Eek! That picture of your hubby's car doesn't look good :-/ Glad I found your blog through the linky party. I'm looking forward to reading more!

    1. Sadly, he has shown me some pictures that are even worse. :(

      Thanks for stopping by! I am already a follower of yours. :)


  3. I'm so sorry to hear about the car! Do you have definitive proof that you can pin it on the dealership, so you can bring it up to the dealer for them to fix it for free, or reimburse you for the damage it caused? That is really unfortunate!

    In other news, I LOVE your Rainbow Sight Words! I will have to try that out in my class too :)

    I am your newest follower!

    1. I'm sorry it took away to get back to you. My husband ended up fixing his car up enough to sell it. We are in the process of getting a new one for him. :)
