Five For Friday!

Happy happy Friday!  



It's already the middle of January and I'm loving my teaching topics this month!  Snowmen, penguins, Martin Luther King, Jr., and of course, Kansas Day!!  We love our sweet, squarish state! (squarish is a word, right? :)  I remember reading "Little House on the Prairie" to my firsties last year....yikes!  That read aloud lasted more than a month!  I think we were all ready for a nice Junie B. Jones after that biggie.


This past week was our snowmen week and we had a blast making snowman pics with shreds of paper (thank u pinterest), completing some nice directional writing pieces on how to build a snowman (Olaf was everywhere!), and introducing symmetry using snowmen.  That has to be the best way for my kiddos to understand symmetry, make a symmetrical snowman!  We also dove into my new freebie, Snowman Book Companion Pack.  Get it at TPT here.

The flu bug slammed my daughter's school this past week and thankfully, she didn't get it....but she did get a nice case of strep throat. :(  My Lily bug is better and no one has caught it. Yet.


I'm going to Jam it up this weekend!  These are my fav Jamberry nails and I love them!  They look great over a bright red polish.  

It's one week until my birthday, so let's have a sale!!  My TPT store will be 20% off tomorrow until Monday!  Check it here!


  1. What an adorable blog design! I just found you from the link up. I'm Carla from Comprehension Connection. So sorry to hear you all had the flu. It really went around our school just before Christmas, but thankfully...dodged it. I think I pinned that same snowman pin too. It was really cute. I just hosted Thematic Thursday this week, and the theme was Winter/Snowy Fun. You'll have to drop by and check it out. (link up any winter freebies too while you're visiting too). Enjoy the long weekend.

  2. Yes please to the nail design. I'm glad I'm not the only one obsessed! Black and white is 100% my style.

    1. Jamberry nails are too fun! My wraps for my toes stay on super long, just waiting for some sunshine again here in KS so I can wear flip flops :)
