Five for Friday 3/8/16

It's been a little while since I've blogged....but for good reason.  Check out what's been happening!!
I'm linking up again with Doodle Bugs to share what we have done this week.

I don't usually share personal information here....but we are expecting our second child!  I'm due in October and am so elated to add one more little one to our family.  My 5 year old daughter will start Kindergarten in the fall so this will be a perfect time to bond with my new little addition.  

I have even started making copies for the first 2 months of school next year for next year since I will be going out on maternity leave in October. 

Our writing time has been fabulous!  I have been so pleased with my kids writing!  This is their third nine weeks writing assessment and the progress we have made is AMAZING!!!!!!

We started our Fundraiser for this year.  We are using Boosterthon which has a Big World Recess theme.  And what is a competition without a door decoration contest!  So here is our door!!

We have been very busy with report card assessments but also with these wonderful Fountas and Pinnell assessments.  I only have 3 more students left to read to me on Monday!  Whew!!!

This was a cute math station my student teacher came up with.  We cut ovals out of the Ellison Press, she used a bunny stamp to make pictures and then subtract a number.  We laminated the ovals so the students could then use a dry erase marker to x off the ones they "took away."  So far, they have loved this activity and I have enjoyed watching them !  

Now you can head over to see what everyone else was up to this week!

  1. Congratulations on your upcoming addition! It's always gratifying to see how much progress the students make in writing over the year.

  2. Congratulations! My son was in kindergarten when my daughter was born. I think a five year age differences is SO GREAT. My son loved that baby sister and would make her smile and laugh while I cooked dinner.
    Laughter and Consistency
