Five for Friday {Linky Party.. February 8th}


Whew!! It’s Friday! I am so ready to jump into bed tonight and hopefully sleep in for a little while in the morning! Here are 5 random things about this week.. join in on your blog and add your link below. Happy Friday!



1. We are slowly getting into the Valentine spirit and we made these cupcakes for our hall bulletin board this week. They each have their one personality.. HA!



2. It is ALWAYS super fun to get home from school to get a box of goodies from a favorite company.. for no reason! Thank you Carson Dellosa for sharing some of your new products with me. Of course, I will put them to great use and cannot wait to use them! I will be blogging about this box of fabulous goodies soon!



3. I am having the hardest time this year with my little ones doing a few daily things .. so we are learning a little responsibility in my room. If one of my students forgets to do one of the 5 things listed above- they have to take their name off the board. Anyone who’s name is left on the board next Friday gets in the treasure box. I have my fingers crossed we do better this next week!



4. We made these little owl bags to hold our Valentine cards today. We are looking forward to filling them up next week!



5. I always feel like I never do anything fun for St. Patrick’s Day. We are always out for Spring Break on March 17th and the week before is a testing week.. so I am really going to try and squeeze these centers in early this year... this past weekend I gave my St. Patrick’s Day math center unit a makeover! You can find them in my store: St. Patrick’s Day Math Centers 


Have a great weekend! If you would like to join the Five for Friday linky party.. just post on your blog and come back and link up below!

Happy Friday Y’all!

What adorable bulletin boards!


Erin said...

That responsibility board is such a FABULOUS idea! My little kinders could really benefit from something like that but about being responsible for doing their class/station work!

Thanks for sharing!

We're doing something very similar to the responsible board. We need to practice getting ready for second grade..see my post today ;)

I absolutely love your idea for the responsibility board. I am having the same issue and have been thinking about a way to reward for responsibility. I will have to get something like this running in my classroom! Thanks for sharing!
