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



Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week 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.









This cute button is from Amy. We are down to ONE week. Thursday is my last day with students and Friday is a work day. And, this next week is jammed packed with end of the year activates so it should FLY by!

Next week includes a breakfast party, Award’s Day Program, Bingo Party, two half days and lots of end of the year work! Here’s to a great last week of school!

We made these little tiny flower pot arrangements this week for Mother’s Day gifts. They turned out really cute.



These are some little end of the year treats. The berry boxes of tic tacs came from the Dollar Tree. They were in a pack 3/$1.00. I printed a simple tag and slid the box and the tag into some small ziplock bags.

Our last centers for the year are from my Ice Cream Math Centers Pack. This is one of my favorite products!


And in other news…

We are patiently waiting on our 5 butterflies to emerge from their chrysalis. We are trying to be patient. But, ALL week they have been just sitting there doing nothing. Maybe we will have some butterflies Monday morning. {sorry no pics! There is just not much to see! HA!}

Happy Mother’s Day! Have a blessed and happy weekend!


  1. Thanks for running the linky - it's such a good way to reflect back on what's happened during the hectic week! Hopefully your last few days of school won't be too much of a blur - UK schools keep going until almost the end of July!! Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  2. The Mother's Day gifts turned out adorable! Enjoy the last week of school. It is such a busy time, but then hopefully you can enjoy some relaxation! :) Have a good weekend.

  3. I love that tic-tac-gift idea! I am leaving this district after this year and have been wanting to get some kind of end of the year gift for my kiddos. Whats been hard is the strict snack list we have. I am pretty sure the tic-tacs will pass! Thanks for the idea!

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your #3! So sweet and simple! This is my first time linking up on your 5 for Friday! I am excited to have found it :)

    Thanks for sharing so many cute ideas!
