Five for Friday!

Happy Friday! I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for my Five for Friday!

I feel like this picture speaks for itself...blow my mind amazingness!!!! October + pumpkins= happiness...and I am on a mission to put pumpkin into every meal I can. I even contemplated finding pumpkin toothpaste. Too much?!?! 

This week we started Fire Safety. The kids are loving it! Every day they ask me "Are we going to have a fire drill?!" Hopefully this week will help us be more prepared for next time we do have a fire drill. I won't lie, the first fire drill of the year was pretty much a HOT MESS...anyone remember Kindergarten Cop!?!

All of our fire learning this week has gotten me excited about watching Chicago Fire again! Anyone else watching? I wish when we went on our field trip to the fire station the fighters looked a little more like this! Wink! ;)

You can read all about our week and grab some freebies too, HERE!

Mo' money NO problems! :) This week we have been learning about community helpers and economics in our community. Who doesn't love money?! Probably my proudest achievement of the week is that the kids are no longer saying that there is just "some old man" on the coins...they now know that those "old men" are past presidents of our AMAZING country!

Here's a little trick for ya...I use money to teach the concepts of greatest and least in math. It is easier for my kids to catch on to these concepts when thinking about money and its value. They tend to understand that they want $10 over $1 because it is GREATER in value!

STOP IT RIGHT NOW...look at what was spotted on the news...HOW LOW WILL IT GO?!?!?! A cool front is on its way. Notice they said cool front, not cold front! :/ I will take it here in South Florida! We are still rocking 90 degrees outside every day, and honestly...girls just wanna wear BOOTS!

Please cross your fingers and blow some cool weather my way. Look at these poor dusty boots that are just dying to come out and play!

This weekend will be filled with pumpkin taste testing and Halloween decorating! Whoop! Whoop! If you are decorating this weekend, you might wanna check out this FREE BOO Pennant! Check back in to see how things turn out!

Happy Weekend!


  1. I totally watched the Kindergarten Cop video! I loved that movie! Now I wanna watch it! We had a fire drill today. This was our second one of the school year. We were in the middle of math centers and everyone got out. There was lots of giggling though and one kid that ran past our closest exit. Yes, he ran. I had to yell stop. We needed to go out the closet door not the main door. Then it was muddy in the field and 100 degrees. It was a hot mess. I'm glad others experience this too! LOL! It's Friday and finally the weekend!

  2. Pumpkin toothpaste? That sounds perfectly reasonable to me. I've been pinning pumpkin soup recipes. I'm looking forward to doing some fire safety activities next week. Have a great weekend!
