High Five for Friday!


My kids love this almost as much as I do:


HAPPY Friday!


My week started wonderfully at a Scholastic warehouse sale! My littles were so excited to see some new books on our library shelves this week. Check out my do's and don'ts here.



I have been teaching my kids cursive and they are SO into it! They get so quiet, and so calm... I play some KidzBop... and 45 minutes zip by just like that. I am impressed with how good they are at it!



Our 3rd-5th graders (and their poor teachers) begin state testing today - ugh! All 3-5 classes were paired up with a K-2 class to be testing "buddies." We have had so much fun spoiling our 3rd grade buddies all week with some encouraging cards and treats!


We also had to take down our bulletin boards in the hallway... so that students leaving the test to use the restroom do not see anything in the hallway that could possibly help them... *eye roll.*
Second grade decided to use our 6 blank boards for encouragement. 




Even though the year is almost over (12 days included today!!), I am super excited about some new technology that was installed in my room this week! All I had to do was hit up my technology specialist and ask him nicely. He even installed it during recess for me to make it a SURPRISE! What a sweetheart.


We have had a great time playing learning with it all week.


To everyone who hasn't made it to summer yet, like me, at least we have a THREE DAY WEEKEND! I come from a military family, so I have lots of thank-yous to dole out this weekend. Other than that, I plan to spend my weekend by the pool and participating in some fun events uptown. 

God bless America. Have a great long weekend!

  1. Today was our last day and our office staff played the "Happy" song over the intercom as kids were dismissed. They danced down the hall as teachers clapped to the beat. It was an awesome ending! I love your signs on the bulletin boards for encouraging during testing! Great idea!
