Five for Friday (May 30)

Another week has gone by! 
And yes, I realize that the last time I blogged was for the last Five for Friday.
It's been busy! 

Here are five great or random things that occurred this week! 

I took Athena to the park and let her walk around the soccer and baseball fields. 
The playground was just too busy! We had to come to the park because the zoo was packed and we couldn't even find a parking spot on the road near the zoo!! 

Our day 6 balloon pop was Surface tablets time. I was actually really worried about this one because we have never used our Surface tablets before AND most of the students had never used Windows 8 before... I know how long it took me to adjust to Windows 8, but I told the kiddos if they wanted their full time on the tablets, they had to follow step by step rules for getting on the tablet.
They were awesome. They all got on within five minutes.
They played on MobyMax for about 20 minutes, then I let them have some free time on ABCYa.

Field Day! I didn't get many pictures, but we had a great time at field day. 
After beautiful weather and lots of team building games, we had Kona Ice from the truck! 
This is a shaved ice truck that drives around and you can rent them out for parties. 
Very fun day! 

Finished up my pots for my room moms. I blogged last week about getting the pots ready.
My mom helped me plant these the correct way. I'm not a gardener, so I didn't want to mess anything up. We drove to the school this week to fix up the flower pots.
I think they turned out super cute! 

And a fun little bit.... I started my week off on the right foot. 
TPT actually started my week off on the right foot!!
I was Featured Teacher on their weekly newsletter!

  3. The big space on the track was exactly what that baby needed. Somehow kids love those big spaces. My daughter used to love to run through the mall! Your homeroom mom idea is also a great one! I will pass that on to my daughter- who is now 26 and teaching!

    Teachers Are Terrific!

  4. Congrats on being the featured teacher! That is great! Isn't it amazing how fast the kids learn to use and navigate on tablets/ipads? They pick that stuff up so quickly!
