Another 5 for Friday!!

I'm back for another addition of 

1. It's that time of year when we start wrapping up curriculum and need to get creative with lessons. Last week and this week we have been reviewing our sight words from the year. So I decided to tape a sight word on each kid and they had to figure out what was on their back by looking at their friends and writing it next to their friend's name. They loved it and can't wait to play it again next week!!

2.Received my invite for my Bachelorette party that my bestie made! Super cute!! Going to be a fun night :-)

3. Today on our ABC countdown was Mix Match day so I mix matched my shoes and so did my teammate.

4. We made our Father's Day gifts. Each student was given a tile and could decorate it with sharpies. I'm going to spray them and add felt on the back to make them into coasters. They turned our great!

5. Made a run to Costco on my way home today. The cart filled up quickly with large items and lots of fruit.

I have to leave you with one my pic of my cutie who was helping me garden tonight! 13 more school days then him and I can will hangout more together!!

Next Year

I'm still thinking about what I have to teach in the next 17 days but I couldn't pass up a chance to linkup with Kim from Finding Joy in 6th Grade for Now that I know that I'm teaching first again I need to organize my stuff better for next year! That is what I plan to do this summer :) Since I have now gone through the curriculum once I want to be better at planning. Since I know what each lesson is now.
I want to look for books this summer that will enhance my lessons for next year. I have a list going and want to find more! 

Now to get ready for the week! 17 more days to go :-)

5 for Friday! What a week!!

So I started my 5 for Friday last week and then my computer was acting weird. So I decided to go to bed. So this will have some from last week and this week. I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for 5 for Friday!

1. Lets start with Monday of last week! I was at school before 7 because I had to interview for my same position. Long story short one year contract so I had to do it again. But it all worked out!!! I will be staying and teaching with my fab team again next year!!!!!!!!!!!!

 2. We started our ABC countdown last Tuesday and the students are loving it. 17 more days of school :)

Realized it's backwards but B was for bubbles and A was for Art. We drew caterpillars from Doodle Bugs Teaching's Spring Directed Drawing and then I stole her idea from her blog for the door.
3. Our nephew was born last Wednesday and we got to go down for the weekend to meet the little guy. He is so cute! I got to have lots of cuddles with him. Looking forward to seeing him when we are back down in 2 weeks!!

I got this picture texted to me today :-)
4. Stout came to school today to meet my firsties. They worked really hard to earn all of their animals (like a marble jar) so Stout could come today. Everyone was so excited to see him. He even got some fan mail from one little boy who spelled Stout's name Stoot. Super cute! Then after school we headed to my parents' house to introduce Stout to my parents' new pups. We had a blast!

Puppy Kisses

5. On Monday I took my last personal day for the year. I got a pedicure and did some wedding stuff with my Mom. Then Tuesday I attended a conference for using ipads during literacy time!

What a busy week! I'm glad we have a long weekend. I have plenty of stuff to work on!

May Currently

Can't believe it is May! And I know I haven't been on here in awhile! I promise to post another one this week about what we have been up to! But for now I'm linking up with the lovely Farley for the May Currently!!

Listening: We came in from sitting in the sun to cool off for a few minutes. So Mr. J is flipping between the basketball game and racing.

Loving: The sunshine it is a hot 80 today and that is amazing for the Pacific Northwest this time of year!! We are enjoying the kiddie pool with Stout and some margaritas for Cinco de Mayo!

Thinking: Finally started reading about the Kennewick study and now I'm thinking about how can I extend my reading time for next year!
Wanting: We have been doing more wedding stuff this weekend but I still would like to get more done!
Needing: What can I say I still have papers to grade from last week. Story of my life!
Summer Bucket List: Summer is busy and fun this year!! I have three showers even before summer offically starts. Then we are off to Vegas for Mr. J's work conference and my sunbathing trip! Then it will be bachelorette party and then getting married. I would like to also squeeze in a few lazy days at home. But I just realized that I forgot our annual trip to the oregon coast for Mr. J's b-day. Summer won't be lazy this year!

Now to go back outside!! Enjoy your Sunday!
