Five For Friday

It's Friday!!! Can I get an amen! This has been the longest.week.ever. I'm also excited that it's Friday because that means another edition of Five for Friday! 

Disclaimer!!! I did not bring my camera to school this week, so please excuse the fuzzy I-Phone pics. Sorry :(

1. First up... Happy Teacher Appreciation Week friends! I hope everyone felt super appreciated by their kiddos this week! I know I sure did! 

I just love fresh flowers! They make me smile!
 Speaking of Teacher Appreciation Week... did you hit up the BIG sale?! I can't wait to share my awesome finds with y'all tomorrow!

2. Look at my new toy!

So excited to finally join the Cameo world! I will be working on a little Mother's Day project for my sweet momma tomorrow! Check back Sunday for a little peek!

3. We've been busy learning about the life cycle of a chicken this week. We made this life cycle on a string craft.

They turned out great! 

Speaking of chickens... I had some visitors today...

One of my kiddos and his brother got chicks for Easter. Look at how big they have grown in only a month!

4. We started our all about book this week. I used Sarah Cooley's Sticky Note Research Projects to help my kiddos organize their information. They have been researching information on an animal. My kids chose an animal and completed a KWL graphic organizer before they began their research. After they collected all their information, I modeled the process of how to take their information and create a book.

You can find the book I made in my TPT shop. Just a little freebie to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week! I hope you find it useful!

5. Are any of y'all trying to cram as much last minute information in these last few days of school? That is totally me right now! I've been having those OMG I haven't taught this yet moments. Mostly because our standards based report cards do not assess every standard... at all... during the year. Completely crazy! Anyways... we are cramming learning about plural nouns right now. I used a couple of activities from my Noble Nouns unit to get us started. We did this plural noun endings sort as a class and my kids recorded the plural form of the nouns in their plural noun endings flip book. Monday we will be creating noun crowns from my unit!

Link up with Doodle Bugs with your Five for Friday snapshots! It's so much fun! I promise!
