Five for Friday! {4/26/13}

Woot Woot! It'sFriday! I'm linking up with DoodleBugs to share 5 random things from my week!

1. DonorsChoose continues to be such a blessing to our class. We recently received a rather large shipment including books on cd, science mentor texts, a reading bench, levelled books for Daily 5, new seat sacks, and a big book organizer thanks to two wonderful foundations here in Florida!

2. We've started our Insect unit! SO much fun, this is always one of my favorites! (I know I say that about them all...)

3. I finally finished and put up little books and pocket charts for June and July which now completes the year! I was so excited to finally be able to bundle them all together for those who have been asking!

4. We also learned all about Earth Day this week! The kids really got into it! We watched the Lorax today after reading the book and there were cries of " No! That's bad! You're hurting the Earth!" every time a tree was chopped.

5. On Thursday we got to go to a local Beach State Park! It was so beautiful there and the weather was perfect!

In fact the weather has been pretty perfect in general....

Happy Friday everyone!!


  1. I love the reading bench you got! I am going to have to check that out as my little ones would love that. Your kids will definitely enjoy all the fun new things you got through Donor's Choose.
