Five for Friday!

I'm linking up again with Doodlebugs for Five for Friday!  I think this might be turning out to be my favorite linky, and I have been trying to take more pictures each week so it has really helped!  This week was full and it's not over.  Our school Spring Fling is tomorrow, so I will be spending Saturday at school! : )  Here's a peek at my week!

1. Field Day! We had a beautiful day on Thursday for Field Day (I only got a little sunburned).  I tie-dyed T-shirts for the big day and they came out great!

2. Firehouse Subs!  I don't live in what I would call a small town but Firehouse Subs is one of my favorite places to eat when we are in Myrtle Beach so I was very excited when I heard they were coming to town.  They opened last Saturday and we were there for opening day! 

3. Plants!  We have been studying plants in Science this week, we made these flip books in our Science journals to record the parts of a plant. We have also playing Plant Bingo and worked on a few of the centers from my Plants pack!

4. Organization.  I have accumulated a lot of new centers this year so I bought some new bins to start organizing! 

5. The Great Pencil Challenge!  This idea came from Ladybug's Teacher Files, we have the same problem with pencils that she wrote about in her post so we started the challenge on Wednesday.  During our pencil check today we have 16/18 students still in the challenge.  We'll see how it goes next week! Head over to her blog to read all about it!

Well that's been my busy week!  I still have one final and a handful of assignments standing between me and the end of the semester for grad. school to get through this weekend.  I also am planning on finishing up Taking Care of Ourselves: Part Three!  Have a great weekend!!


  1. I can't wait to see an after picture of the tie-dye tees! I am thinking about doing this at the end of the year for our luau. -Kristi

  2. Love the great pencil challenge!
    The plant flip book is such a great idea!
    Fabulous Fifth Grade Fun

  3. Cute idea for the tees! And I have a TON of organizing to do over the I will need to make a stop at walmart just for bins after school lets out. I've never been to Firehouse they have cute firefighters that deliver your food to the table?! ;)


    1. Hahaha! I wish it's just a sub place that was founded by Firefighters! : )

  4. You are one brave lady with all that tie-dying! Can't wait to see how they turn out! I've never heard of Firehouse Subs, but it sure sounds like something I'd like! Hope the sun is shining again for your Spring Fling tomorrow!

  5. I need to organise my center activities too but can't work up the motivation to tackle that task!

    I am your newest follower, I popped over from the Five for Friday linky. :)

  6. Field day, already? When is your last day of school? We still have another four weeks!

    1. We have a love/hate relationship with Field Day. We used to have it at the end of May but now that is strictly reserved for end of year testing. So, Field Day is now in April even though we don't get out until the second week in June.

  7. Just picked up some pretty purple bins to start getting organized. Keeping up with the station materials is something I've really got to work on...=)

  8. I was just thinking today about how I really need to find some bins for my center activities. My little crate is overflowing! I love your science journal flip books!
    My First Love

  9. I think I need to enlist some mommies to help me organize. My classroom is beyond me in trouble! Your blog is very cute. I taught 2nd grade for two years and love that age. I can tell you are a talented and devoted teacher to have made the t-shirts.

  10. I just found your blog by way of Primary Paradise! She was blogging about your nonfiction text feature posters so I had to head over to TpT to get them... Love the pencil challenge:)
