Five for Friday

Happy Friday! My five shares aren't from just the past week. This school year has been fantastic but busier than usual. My class is bright and hardworking, and I have to move quickly to keep up with them! I usually forget to take pictures, because I'm so busy. Thank you to Kacey at Doodlebugs Teaching for hosting this linky every week.

Thank you to all veterans, service members, and their families. The sacrifices that you make for our country are greatly respected and deeply appreciated. 
What do you think of this amazing owl? Do you see its ginger-root feet? One of our cafeteria staff created it to display in the kitchen. We are so blessed to have such a cheerful, creative group of people serving our students every day. They love the kids, and it shows.

My class and I participated in a postcard exchange organized by Kristen at Aspire to Inspire. She worked hard to give students across the country a chance to interact. I plan to sign up every year from now on!
Our family has been going on jaunts lately. We've been trying to enjoy the very last of the fall foliage. We went to a waterfall relatively nearby. Another time we drove to Deerfield, Massachusetts to visit Yankee Candles' flagship store. 

My students have been working collaboratively to research severe weather. They'll be creating informative posters to share what they've learned.

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. LOVE the owl in the cafeteria! I meant to participate in a postcard exchange last year - I even bought all the postcards, but I had to take care of my father and never got to it. I like how your students are writing on the postcards - great idea! Happy weekend!

  2. What an adorable owl! I bet your students are loving the severe weather seem to really love learning about that topic!

  3. Love that owl and your children are adorable.
