5 for Friday with a sprinkle of TEXT EVIDENCE

Friday, March 14, 2014
Whew ~ this was the LONGEST week evah!!!!!  I'm not even kidding.  I don't even know where to start...so happy it's the weekend.  I think a Sangria is calling my name LOUD & CLEAR!

Ok so normally I don't take selfies in the bathroom ~ cheesy!  But I got this darling shirt at Stein Mart.  Do you all have one near you?  It looks like I got it from Jane or another on line boutique but really Stein Mart.  I used to think Stein Mart was only for senior citizens.  I'm not even kidding.  Then a friend told me she got a cute shirt there and what do ya know?!?  They have some really cute stuff there...you need to go check them out!

We have been busy working very hard on text evidence this week.  In reading groups we have been reading/re- reading for fluency...looking back for 'evidence' with highlighters and 'magnifying' glasses.  It's been so much fun!
Check out my pack by clicking on the product picture:


Wednesday I was all ready to go to work and my son woke up with a terrible rash...I had to get a sub last minute.  Thank goodness for my Sub Tub! { and it's a freebie people :o ) }

It's sorta hard to tell but this is my opinion writing anchor chart.  We have been busy this week working hard on opinion writing too.  I'm so proud of my little firsties writing their heart out!

If you're stuck on how to get started I have an opinion writing pack you can check out { here }

A BUNCH of RANDOMNESS squeezed into #5 here:
First how cute are the kinders at my school, they used this app CAT CAM to make these sweet faces:

They graphed their favorite book with these pics...darling!

I had a Spring Showcase for my sweet daughter....it was a preview to the high school she will be going to....CRAZY!!!

Seriously she was that baby like yesterday I'm pretty sure!

We made these cuties today...I think they are originally from my talented friend Jen at First Grade Blue Skies...

and I  made this new product this week:

{ it's even on sale right now }

It's got craftivities/center ideas/printables/posters and more.

Hope you are going to enjoy your weekend as much as I'm planning to...take care ~ oh and hook on up with Doodle Bugs and tell us about your week.


P.S.  My wonderful friends are having their March Mystery Box giveaway and it is REALLY , extra awesome this month...check it out { here } 


  1. Love the cute cat faces! Looks like you had a busy week! I hope your son is feeling better! Your daughter is beautiful! What is a Spring Showcase? They grow up so fast don't they?

  2. Love that cute shirt! I have never heard of Stein Mart, but we barely got a Target here in Hawaii! I cannot believe how quickly my girls are growing up! (tear) My oldest turns 12 on Tuesday!!! I plan to do some close reading activities when we get back from Spring Break :) Have a wonderful weekend!
