Five for Friday: March 25th

This is the truth! On Friday nights, I am exhausted!

We are on Spring Break this week but I did a lot before we left. We took down all of our Dr. Seuss books and filled the shelves with all of our Spring things.....which means we are in the homestretch when we return! So excited!!!

I love these directed drawings we did that I found on Pinterest. The kids put their hand on the bottom of the paper, drew a circle around it, added two dots in the top corners and finished the lines to make ears, and then added the facial features. We drew everything in dark crayons and then they finished with the water colors. They came out so cute!

We do Jump and Wills Guided Reading units. I love seeing how the kids can make connections and write opinions. I thought these two friends did a great job in writing their opinions whether the Easter Bunny should allow skunk to help him hide eggs in the book "The Easter Bunny's Assistant". The first friend said "I think he should let him because the bunny can plug his nose." LOL!
"I think he will say yes because he might show good hiding spots."

I had some friends get way too much out during the game time so I thought it was a good opportunity to do some spring cleaning. We got rid of so many things that didn't have their parts and pieces. The bins looked fantastic when we were all done. Great lesson in sorting and classification =)

I got my haircut and it felt so good! Four inches off and I feel like a new woman. LOL! It is light and fresh for Springtime and our trip to Florida. I love the view from our room. Back to reality next week but so thankful that our family had the time together to make some great memories!

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Your haircut is adorable. I too am cleaning... but it is for summer... I just found out I have to move classrooms :(. And I too, chill on Friday nights... though you might want to read my post this week to see how my "Friday" night went awry :) See you around. Kathleen

  2. I love your directed drawings. They turned out great! Thanks for reminding me that I need to change my books out for spring.

  3. People have joys and sorrows; month wanes; the weather is unpredictable; people have good and bad fortune overnight; things look on point, a different angle to think about is not the same, for a certain mental attitude towards people and things. You back to discover more benefits, more beneficial to themselves or others.
