5 for Friday!

WHOO! My first 5 for Friday! Next week I know to take more pictures so I can actually show what I am talking about! Check out Doodle Bugs Teaching to link up =)

This week I took a major step in packing! I always feel really good getting things started even though the move is still 2 months away. We just found out we won't be in GA long before we have to now head to KY/TN (the base is right on the border). We will only be in GA for 7 months. This means a few things for me...I guess I will not be getting a full time teaching job for the next school year because we are not there long enough. So.. hopefully I will tutor some. I am however excited to be a stay at home mommy for 7 months and work on lots of creating!! I will keep yall updated but that is the current plan for now. (it will probably change haha)

Measurement is done! We finished up our measurement unit today! I was very pleased on how everyone did on their test =)! This was one of my favorite things we did this week! They loved using the egg ruler since we just had Easter. 

Loving Blogging =) I am still just so excited I finally started! 

Text Talk-I love using Text Talk (Isabel Beck). My favorite part is when the kiddos start using the words in their everyday talk. Yesterday I read Tough Boris by Mem Fox! It has awesome vocabulary and amazing illustrations. Of course the boys LOVED the pirate theme. I did Text Talk with the words Fearless, Greedy, and Massive.

Excited to start my Earth Day activities next week! You can check it out here if you are interested in seeing what I came up with =) 

Most excited to see how these 2 activities go:

The Craftivity-I think its going to be so cute!

And the scattergories game!

Happy Friday Yall!!
