Five for Friday

It was a short week.  We had Monday and Tuesday off.  There was a "frigid weather" delay on Friday. I still managed to gets lots of pictures of what we've been up to.  I'm linking up (a day late) with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

Our turtle and tortoise projects are finished!  We've had so many days off lately that it seemed to take forever.  Three groups decided to create books.  One group created a poster. For more about our turtle/tortoise research project and a FREEBIE, click here

The children's snow monster stories are also finished!  They got together with partners and in groups of three to share their writing with one another.  These cute snow monsters were a quick, fun activity to wrap everything up.  

Yesterday these turkeys decided to hang out in the field outside my classroom window.  The poor things must be hungry and really cold.  I called the kids over in small groups to look at them.  

The Golden Fork has made its appearance in the cafeteria!  It's on a fancy silver tray.  The table with the quietest, most mannerly students gets the GOLDEN FORK placed on it!  The children seated at the "golden fork" table get to line up first. We have a teacher who runs our Positive Behavior Assemblies, and she is masterful at getting the kids excited about these things.  Prior to the fork being used in the cafe, she showed it to the students at one of our assemblies.  It was so cute to watch their little jaws drop open in amazement.

In our town, there is a group of moms that gets together to pray for us every week.  In the staff room Wednesday there was this note along with a basket full of instant apple cider, hot chocolate packets, and tea bags. There were also styrofoam cups with lids. They're a blessing.

I hope you've had a wonderful week.  Head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching for more Five for Friday posts.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the idea of having a golden fork during lunch time! I might have to try that at my school!
