Five for Friday - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Five for Friday

I missed Wordless Wednesday and Thoughtful Thursday :)... So thank goodness Kasey has this Five for Friday!!! Good- glad you approve. I love a good alliteration.

Valentine's Day is in the air!  Nash and I have been practicing writing his name AND I have been prepping my Vday Centers :) 

My class worked really hard on graphing this week.  We also concluded a Mem Fox author study!  Koala Lou is definitely one of my favorite books, but my kids would tell you- I have hundreds of favorite books!

Sorry for the blurriness- but too good not to share!  My adorable first graders made the FRONT page of the newspaper for all their fabulous work with the ipads!  I am so proud of them!

Today we celebrated a month of fantastic reading with our sleeping bags, favorite books, and comfy clothes!  
Love my sweet girls!

Today I downloaded McGraw Hill's Beat the Computer for (FREE) two oober smart boys!  They LOVED the challenge

Tomorrow I am surprising my husband with a mini-get-away for his 30th birthday!  I can't wait!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. At my school, they recently purchased Ipads for the K-2 teachers for state assessments, I think I am going to start using them for my interventions because there are so many wonderful apps out there and I know my firsties can handle not breaking it! haha. Where are you going on your get-away? Sounds fun!


  2. Congrats on getting in the paper! That is awesome!:)
