Five For Friday: Settling into the Routines!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bug Teaching's Five for Friday.
It's a great way to look back over the week! :)

1. My sister and her family came to visit this weekend! They live several states away and we hadn't seen each other since last Christmas! It was such a fun visit and it was great to see the kids play together!

2. Math Strategy Bags! They have been my life savior this year!
I wrote a post about them that you can find here!

3. Teamwork Time! Even though we are a good three weeks into school now, we have still been doing a lot of collaboration activities! I wrote about what we have been up to the last two weeks last night! Check it out here and find a fun freebie too!

4. Sickness hit our house big time this week! Alex missed both days of preschool and no one has been sleeping well! Yuck! This roller coaster weather doesn't help either!

5. Have you read the book Chalk?  I read it with Alex at home and then to my kids. It is a wordless book. They LOVED it! Yesterday we went outside and did our own chalk drawings. I printed the pictures today and the kids made their picture "come to life". They had so much fun doing it!  I have been borrowing the book from the library, but it is definitely one I want to buy. They were so excited to read it again today!

Happy Weekend! I'm headed over to Tot Trade (huge kids consignment sale) to find some goodies for home and school! :)


  1. I love the idea of the math strategy bag! I might have to tweek it a bit for my Young 5's class but it really got me to thinking! Thanks for the inspiration!
    Oh, I found you on the Five for Friday linky!

  2. It has been a great tool... it was a conglomeration of ideas that were passed along by my coworkers! I love how versatile it is! I hope you can find a great way to use it in your class too! :)
