Five For Friday!

You know when you have to sometimes laugh to keep from crying. That pretty much sums up how comical this week was. 
Oh the stories... that I would share with you if we were drinking a cup of coffee! Definitely not on a blog though! ;)

It's finally Friday! Here is what I have been up to this week...

Happy Monday off! I took advantage of the day to go see a friend and then take a quick trip to Ikea! Alex was happy to come with me, but was pretty worn out by the time we got to the end of Ikea... too much walking! :)

A beautiful sunset is such a perfect way to end the day!

We are starting a unit on measurement, so after we traced and cut out our foot, we went around measuring things to find objects that were about the same length.
It was fun to watch them wander around the room and get creative with how to find matching lengths!

This week my literacy coach and I introduced book talk to the kids! I am wanting the kids to feel free to share an interesting thought during their independent reading time and then go back to their reading. The kids were so excited. Some bounce up every couple of minutes it seem, and one other sweet boy inches his way to his friend then says something without her even paying attention! So of course at the end we are always talking about how to make sure it is purposeful, and that we go back to reading and such! We made this anchor chart to help us with some good sentence starters to make sure our comments are purposeful! 

I've wanted to start on some games for February that match up with some of the math and reading standards we need to cover this next quarter...
This is as far as I have gotten!
Yeah, not very far... it probably won't even stay like this. Some weeks, my evenings can be super productive, but not this week! My brain is worn out! Hopefully I will get more productive this weekend!

As usual, I am linking up with Doodle Bug Teaching's Five for Friday! TGIF!



  1. Happy Friday! I found your blog from the Doodle Bugs linky party! You have a really pretty blog! Thanks for sharing your hard work!

  2. I had a "comical" week like yours too! We made it. Hopefully this next week will be better.

    My class is starting measurement right now. I love how you had your students trace their feet! I am so doing that this week. Thanks!
