5 for Friday

Friday, February 12, 2016
My weekend started yesterday and goes until Monday night...whoo-hooo!  I am thrilled to link up with Kacey again for 5 for Friday.  Swing on by her blog and check things out:

So here's what I've been up to this week...

We had assessments this week for ELA and Math so there wasn't a lot of fun  stuff other than Valentine's to share so...my student teacher worked with the kids and made this cute doggie heart project:

How cute did these turn out?!!?  We even made a display at our Valentine's Dance in the MPR with them.

Next I wanted to share how fun my Behavior Bites have been.  I started this in November...it was one of those middle of the night ideas that came to me.  They have been a big hit!  This month we are filling a jar up with conversation hearts that have to do with targeted behaviors that we are trying to meet ( goals ).  This is where we are at and it's not even the middle of the month yet.  When it's full we earn an extra 20 minute recess!

If you are interested in these you can type Behavior Bites in the TPT search bar or find the February ones here:

I've enjoyed having my student teacher with me since coming back in January.  I think it's important to make them feel special like we do with our students every day.  She enjoyed the love.

This is from one of my packs in my store...they create a heart card with a fun little scrapbook paper key on it ~ the parents always love this special keepsake!  If you love it you can grab it below:  It can also be used for Mother's or Father's Day too.

Randomness:  Last but not least I had to share my favorite piece so far from Stitch Fix { this tunic though... } and I took my youngest to his High School Showcase/preview night.  Eek!  How is my baby in high school....?

 He's the class of 2020!!!!

The last bit of randomness ~ the kinders at my school had a visit from the dentist and even though I teach third I couldn't help but get in on the action!!

Well that's all folks...I'm excited for next week as we'll be starting our unit on Biographies so lots to share soon!
