Friday Five Recap

Linking up with Doodle Bugs for my first Five for Friday....
Here are 5 quick things I did this week:

Monday: Scored the New York State English Language Arts Test.
 Phew.... Here is my scoring "survival kit":

Tuesday: Took a long walk to get to my 10,000 step goal. 

Wednesday: Students paired up to play "Blast Off!" - a Nutrition Game from ChooseMyPlate.gov.  (That site has some nice resources by the way...)
Thursday: Went shopping with my daughters for their spring clothes. They had outgrown nearly everything. Thank goodness my Mom came along to help - wrangling a 6 and 4 year-old into a dressing room is not easy.
Friday: Cheered on my class as they ran the mile this morning. I am so proud of them! Some increased their time by 4 minutes!
So how was your week?

  1. Looks like your girls got some cute stuff! I remember not ever wanting to go shopping and try on clothes when I was a kid (much like now!), so I can only imagine what a 4 and a 6 year old are like!

  3. My week was great...I actually found your blog because I just found out I'm jumping up from 2nd grade to 5th - scary!! I am a little nervous, but am excited for all that 5th graders can do.

    I just posted about it... if you have a minute, would you mind sharing some advice?? Thank youu :)

    1. Hi Lauren! Just started following your blog. I like that you have recipes, too. In some ways, 5th is not that different from 2nd. They still need a million reminders to have pencils and put names on papers. :-) I've found that my students really want to be social, so by harnessing that into focused group work can be helpful. But..they need a lot practice working cooperatively. It seems like the interpersonal disputes get turned up a bit as they get older. (And don't get me started on the "dating"...ugh!!!) But...I love 5th graders and I think you are going to have a fantastic year!
