Five for Friday!

It is that time again!  We made it through our first week!  Well, we only made it 3 days...continue reading to find out more about this and a GIVEAWAY AND a freebie!



1.  I am currently enjoying a surprise 5 day WEEKEND!  You heard that right!  Remember my last post?  My school district cancelled school for Thursday and Friday for any school without a/c!  Guess who does not have a/c?   Can you believe that!?  I relaxed and headed to WI yesterday.  Today, I will lesson plan, lesson plan, lesson plan so I can get ahead or get caught up...ha!

2.  The first day we read First Day Jitters and did a writing response activity.

I had my kiddos write about how they felt on the first day of school.  It was a great informal assessment to see where my kiddos are at!

3.  I am excited about these 2 days, but my class was doing so great with everything and I just wanted to keep going with everything!  Wednesday I started Guided Math with them.  We only practiced our expectations in the center part of Guided Math, but they did a great job with that!  I wanted to spend the new few days practicing, but that will have to wait until next week!

4.  Have you seen the new Precious Pink sharpener from Friendly Classroom Supplies!?  I am in LOVE with these sharpeners and this color!  The best part- $1 from each sale goes to a cancer charity.  Read about the two charities here!  I find myself ALWAYS buying something when I know some of proceeds go to a charity...am I the only one!?  I have great news, Troy was so nice to give me one to giveaway!

5.  Now a freebie for you!  Skip counting cards and recording sheet!  Click on the picture.  Enjoy! :)

  16. I loved reading about your days at school so far. I'd love to hear more specifics about your guided Math as the days go on.

    I've never heard of schools being closed due to broken A/C. Almost none of our schools have it here in Vancouver (BC). Although, if we closed due to rain, we'd never open! Our summer was so beautiful though that it'll be tough to go to school on Tuesday.

    1. I will definitely be blogging about Guided Math as we get more into it!
      Our school is old so it only has those box units in the office and a couple rooms. My room along with every other room in the school used fans which just blew the hot air around! I was on vacation in Mexico and met some people from Vancouver!
