Five for Friday!

Happy Friday! It's been a big week, so what better way than to celebrate with a Five for Friday link up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching!

So let's get this party started!
Wahoo! We finally made it to the100th Day of school this week.  On Tuesday, we celebrated the 100th day with the Aging Booth app.  My kids had a blast taking their pictures and fast forwarding 100 years.  We did a side show of all our pictures and it was the funniest thing to watch.  Every time a new picture came on the screen the screamed like we were in the theater watching a scary movie.  After viewing our pictures, we wrote about what our life will be like in 100 years.  It was by far my favorite 100th Day activity that I have ever done.  I highly recommend downloading this app!

This week was my first time being a part of a big sale on Teachers Pay Teachers. It was really exciting! It made me grateful to be starting this journey working with Teachers Pay Teachers as they honored all those amazing teachers out there. After all, teachers are...neat, sweet and hard to beat.  I defiantly took part in the sale too and got lots of goodies! Buying clip art and font can be a bit addicting. 

Last week we only went to school one day because of all this crazy weather.  So, we had a lot of catching up to do in order to celebrate President's Day.  A teammate of mine made a great QR code scavenger hunt that we used to learn all about Abraham Lincoln.  We examined pictures of Lincoln, read books about him, and even made our own little book to honor him. 

I downloaded this writing book freebie from TpT on Sailing Through 1st Grade's store.  

Speaking of snow days, it has been too cold to go outside this week and our playground is still covered in snow.  Recess has been inside all week!  However, thanks to GoNoodle we are officially indoor recess survivors.  Thank you GoNoodle for helping to get the wiggles out! 

AND FINALLY...In baby news: this week marks WEEK 30! WAHOO! I feel like we have hit the big 3-0 and are in the home stretch. 

PS. My husband took this photo right after I got home from school...I am a little sleepy, can you tell? ;) 

I am going to be working on a big freebie coming up next week as I link up with some fellow VA bloggers! Keep an eye out for a giveaway too!

  1. That Abraham Lincoln activity looks so awesome! I would love to some lessons like that with my students! A class at my school hung up aged pictures using the aging booth for 100th day and all the teachers dressed like we were 100. It was a lot of fun!
