Five for Friday

We finished up our Poetry Packets just in time to start our “file folder reports,” next week.  I will have lots of pictures of that project next weekend!
Poetry book
My favorite are their limericks!  So fun to read! I had a few students write limericks about Duck Dynasty.  I was dying!
I joined #teachertalktuesday on Instagram for the first time on Tuesday!  Follow me!
One of my favorite parts of our day is our Morning Meeting!  Love to hear their news and learn new things through our question time.  It also is a great chance for my kiddos to practice being active listeners and taking turns talking!  Great conversation skills are being formed!
Morning Meeting
We started our human body unit in science.  This is one of my favorite end of the year projects.  Our life sized paper bodies are lining the hallway and as we learn about each body system we glue it in place!  So much fun!

I came across this on Pinterest this week.  Such a great reminder about being light in this world.  Trying to do my part in my little part of the world to instill kindness!
Happy Friday Everyone!

Currently May

I am linking up with Oh Boy 4th Grade for the May Currently and I am predicting that I will already by in the 300s.  I am always so late on this!  The week is winding down along with the school year.  Time really has flown by.  My baby is promoting from 8th grade and leaving Mommy’s little elementary nest to join Daddy in the big world of high school.  My principal called her in a few weeks ago and asked if she would deliver the speech at the promotion ceremony.  I am not going to lie.  I teared up when I got the news.  I can’t wait to hear her deliver her speech and I am just praying I can hold it together!

Anyways, here is my Currently for May….just a little late (as usual!)

May Currently

Listening…..  It is project time in our house.  School projects are due and Student Council elections are coming up so it is poster making central.  Thank goodness for my silhouette machine!

Loving……my house!  It is soooo clean!  My amazing husband hired someone to come in and clean it for me.  We had a party at our house last week and I just couldn’t handle all of the party prep and the clean up on my own (oh yeah, and then there is that full time job that I have!).  So great coming home each day to a house that is nice and clean!

Thinking……that I have a lot of projects that I want to work on this summer.  Some for school and some for home.  I will keep you posted!

Wanting…..a cute maxi skirt.  I am loving this trend.  I am all about anything that will hide my legs!  I really need to get out and do some shopping. 

Needing… catch up on some sleep.  Who can get to bed early when Grey’s Anatomy is brand new tonight!

Summer Bucket List….I have been wanting to refinish my kitchen table for some time now.  I have watched several DIY videos, checked out stains at Home Depot and priced out the whole project.  It is time to just get it done.  My poor table has been through 9 years of school projects.  It has seen incredible amounts of glue, glitter, clay, and paint.  It definitely needs some TLC!

Hope everyone has a great Friday!
