Five For Friday - February 8

I am linking up with Doodle Bug for Friday's linky party.


Here are 5 things about this week.

1.  Our Chinese New Year Board, love it.  We celebrated Chinese New Year today and according to my kiddos, "It was the best day ever."  I had to remind them that they said that for the Mitten day and Gingerbread Houses and .....  I love my kids.

2.  We made these adorable dancing dragons.  We battled another classroom, so much fun.

3.  Glitter - the reason why my custodian loves me.... not, giggle.  There was glitter, everywhere in our classroom today.  I told the custodian that I left him a present by my reading table, he just laughed.  He is the best.  The kids thought that I put glitter all over the classroom on purpose.  Which is why they thought "it was the best day ever".

4.  We, almost, finished working on our contraction unit.  This is the last character in the story.  Nikki from Melonheadz made him just for me.  Love this guy.

5.  District assessments and a lockdown drill during recess made this a very long week, plus we had hail today at dismissal - in southern California.   How was your week?

Hoping to get some rest this weekend, but I have a birthday party for my grand daughters, baby shower for the twins, and grades to finish.  Math assessments start on Tuesday and I am flying to Hawaii to see hubby for Valentine's Day/Long weekend, so excited.

Pin It!


  1. Love the dragons! I forgot to take pictures of ours today. So exciting that you get to see your husband for Valentine's :). Enjoy your weekend, it sounds like fun.


  2. Love the dragons! We do an international night at school and my class did China this year. I might have to make these for next year! Thanks for sharing!

  3. It sounds like you have a busy weekend planned!

    Glitter- I love it but it's a mess. Although I'd rather have it be a mess at school than at home! It never fails that my daughter gets it in her hair and it refuses to come out! It's pretty funny!

    I love the jester! How cute!
