Five for Friday {Linky Party.. March 7th}

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 have been spending my nights and a few early mornings this week working on my newest set of math sheets. These should be finished and listed in my store this weekend!

My first graders read with their sixth grade reading buddies this week. It was a good experience for both of them.

I pulled these large number cards out of my pocket chart files and we practiced ordering them from least to greatest at the small group table this week. They are actually part of a matching activity {match the word to the number} but we mainly used them for ordering. 

Testing week = tired achy feet, long days, irritable students

But.. I can handle anything since SPRING BREAK has started! 

Happy Weekend! And Happy Spring Break if you are blessed with next week off!!! Feel free to link up below!


  1. UGH testing starts next week for us. Not looking forward to it. Our Spring Break isn't until March 30th. Have a great relaxing week!!
