Five for Friday on a Saturday!

I was too busy last night watching the Heat game that I didn't get to post my Five for Friday. Did you watch the game last night?! Oh so sad!

I shared this picture on Instagram the other day, but I just had to post it here too! This is what a student wrote in his "Donut for Dad" Father's Day book! I was impressed with both his spelling and his illustration! :)

A few weeks ago on pinterest I saw a picture of  kids writing on the desks with dry erase markers, it looked like fun so we had to try it this week! When I had the students take out their markers but didn't give them a board and then told them to write on the desk... it was pure INSANITY! They went bananas- giggling, shrieking and writing! At the end I gave each student a baby wipe and the desk cleaned right up! If you haven't tried it before you MUST! The kids will love it! :)

We had a visit from a student's pet. It was a pet hen. :) This was so much fun!

We went bowling on Friday! This is my favorite field trip! I love hearing my kids cheering each other on and celebrating each other's successes. Just listening to them brought tears to my eyes!

I went to the Dollar Tree the other day and got lots of goodies! LOVE that place! My classroom has been turned into a Summer Fun Paradise! Pictures and FREEBIES coming soon!!

It is too gorgeous outside...time for some beach! 

Go link up!

This weekend may we all remember the amazing heroes who have sacrificed so much for us to live in this wonderful nation.

  1. I absolutely love when I hear them encouraging each other without any nudging or encouragement from me. Reminds me how good-natured they are.
