Five for Friday: Shapes, Plants and some Freebies!

We have been busy this week! 

I love teaching shapes! We are having lots of fun with workshop stations! They got pretty creative with their pictures too! You can grab that activity sheet here!

As we got ready to start talking about plants, I gave each learning club some chart paper and they recorded what they knew about plants already. It was so interesting to see their sentences and pictures! The details they included helped to show what they know!

These boys! I am thankful we had some sunny days at the beginning of the week because it has got more and more dreary as the week has gone on! My boys at home are just as antsy as my kiddos at school! 

Grilled pizza is my FAVORITE!! We eat pizza quite often in the spring and summer... but we have been perfecting the art of thin crust so it is not too unhealthy right?!? ;) We use the recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes. It's perfect!

The day after we wrote what we knew about our plants, we made some predictions and planted our seeds. You can read more about that fun here!

If you want a copy of the plant observation journal, you can grab it here for free! 

Linking up with Doodle Bug Teaching's Five for Friday! It's always fun to see what others are up to! :)


  1. Love the shape designs! That pizza looks scrumptious!!! :)

  2. Your pizza looks delicious and those plant observation books like fun.

    1. Thanks! Hopefully the seeds will start growing soon, the kids are so anxious to see something grow!;)

  3. I love that you call your groups learning clubs! What a great way to approach getting each student involved! I'd love to hear more about them. I hope you have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks! We used to be an HET school and they focused a lot on cooperative learning, so that name always stuck! :)
