Five for Friday {Linky Party.. May 6th}

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.


We did these fun direted drawing butterflies this week. We actually drew them last week then my students colored them during any free time they had this week. I cut around each one, mounted on different colored cardstock and laminted each one. They made a cute {and fast!} hallway display. 

These are included in my Spring Directed Drawing Unit.

I teach in a small, Christian private school. And, as a special reward for learning Bible verses this year we had a cereal bar party this week. We did this last year and seriously.. this is the BEST and EASIEST party idea ever! It is simple and the kids love it! 

This next Monday I get to spend a little time with my next year's class. I prepped a summer work folder for them to take home and HOPEFULLY do while they are on break. 

The summer work folder is liste in my store...

Our math centers this week were all from my my new Frog Frenzy Pack. I love these!! 

We will be doing more of these frog centers next week. 
There are plenty for 2 weeks worth of frog fun!

We made out little bitty flower pots again for Mother's Day. I made these last year and they are super simple and really cute. So, I knew I wanted to make them again.

We (ok, me!) wrapped them, and put them inside a bag with their Mother's Day Questionnaire {free download}. They also made a painted tile/coaster in art class. So, it is wrapped and inside the bags too!

And.. just a FYI. I have officially SEVEN (7) days left of school! Crazy!!!
I am sooo ready for a break. But, I don;t want to give this class up.
 I just want to have summer break and pick right back up where we left off!
