Five for Friday 3/1

Oh Friday! I have missed you!!!

Linking up again with Doodle Bugs Teaching to give you a quick recap of my week:

1. Read Across America Day!
One way we celebrated today was with a hat contest. Here are some of the creative hats that came in today:
She has feathers, fringe, and SPARKLES on her hat! AWESOME!!
This one was my favorite, but didn't win the class vote. He has truffula trees on top and a Lorax masquerade mask!

She is wearing a stocking hat, but attached Thing 1 to it and drew pictures of Dr. Seuss characters and pinned them all around.
This was the winner in our class. He was calling it the "High 5 Hat!" It's actually an ice cream bucket with blown up rubber gloves. Not really a Dr. Seuss hat, but definitely creative and funny!
2. My Girl Scout Cookies Arrived!
There may or may not be an empty Caramel Delites box in the garbage can as well...
I just realized I forgot to order a box of Peanut Butter Patties. Sadsville :(

3. Working on Native American Research and Presentations
YES second graders can work in cooperative groups! YES second graders can make PowerPoint slideshows! I can't wait to show you how they turn out next week!

4. Snow Day... Just Kidding!
We were all hyped up for a snow day on Wednesday.... aannnddddd..... SORRY! :( Here was my drive home on Wednesday.

 I literally drove 25-30 mph the whole way home. Yep, I'm one of "those people."

5. No Talking!
This has seriously changed my classroom this week... for the better! Click here to read more!
I kept leaving the hole punch around the room and would forget where I put it, so I put it on a string and wore it like a necklace. LOL!

Lastly, Diane from Fifth in the Middle coordinated an AH-MAZE-ING linky for all 50 states! I can't begin to imagine how much time it took her for to do this! 
I'm a proud cheese head!!! Where are you from?


  1. Hi Angela,

    So sorry you didn't get a snow day - I can't totally relate to the drive you must have had.

    I am looking forward to seeing your powerpoints - I've done that with my second graders, too!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog-
