Five for Friday {Linky Party.. April 4th}

Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week and on your blog. Then, you come back and link your blog post up at the bottom of this post in the linky tool.Grab the button above and link back to this post on your blog.

I skipped out on posting my "five" things last week.. because I left bright and early last Friday for a girl's weekend with some of the most amazing teacher/blogging friends. We flew or drove in from all across the country to eat, shop, eat, shop.. and participate in the Neon Dash last weekend in San Antonio. 

Back Row: AlishaElizabeth, Stephanie, Dee Dee, Me
Front Row: Gladys, Hope, Crystal, Deanna, Cara, Reagan, Amy

I also got the opportunity to meet April and Farley.

One of our phonics skills this week has been "th" so we made these fun TOOTH FAIRIES! It's a free download from TpT from Angie Neal. They turned out really cute! LOVE THEM!

I mentioned TWO weeks ago that we were studying dinosaurs and I was updating my Dino Unit. I really, really promise I am. We are STILL working on some of it. I promise I will get around to finishing it up .. soon!

One of the new activities I am adding to my Dinosaur Unit is this super easy {but fun!} directed drawing. We finished ours up this week. 

We welcomed April this past Tuesday! Can you believe it? We have 28 days of school left. WHAT?!? Is it too early to start a countdown?? We have a ton to squeeze into these last 28 days! This April printable is from my Months of the Year Unit.


  1. Looks like you ladies had a wonderful girls weekend!

  2. I was so envious of you all being in San Antonio.I live right down the road from Retama Park. I love running 5ks there too. It's always such a blast. Hopefully soon I can have the privilege to meet more of you all and get up to this caliber. You ladies are truly inspirational. :) Thank you all for all you do.
