Five For Friday! Whoop Whoop!!

Happy Friday, ya'll!

No, I'm not southern. I always wish I was though so I could actually say ya'll, but I'm just from Kansas City. No fun accent here, friends.

Anyway, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five For Friday linky. My favorite linky because it happens on Fridays and because I enjoy talking about myself.

Let's get started, shall we?

I'm in love with my dogs, you guys. Jasper is 5 and has been my baby boy since I got him. Before Dear Boyfriend entered the picture, I lived alone with just Jasper. He is not big enough to be a real watch dog, but I believe he watched over me. He always knows when I'm sad or sick and will just lay by me. So, getting Sadie, I knew would be interesting. I was worried Jasper would get jealous or have some big brother syndrome or something. 

Far from!

I know, I treat them like they are real human babies. But, they are my babies and I can do what I want :)

They absolutely love each other.

I reached 100 followers on Facebook this past week! I'm so excited that I've reached such a milestone! To do so, I hosted a giveaway. It was a lot of fun! If you want to follow me, just click here. I'd really like it if you did though. :)

We worked on our punctuation skills and sentences this week. I blogged about it earlier this week which you can find by clicking here. It was a huge success. My little learners absolutely loved the sweets theme. After all, that's our classroom theme! Cupcakes, candies, and sweets galore in our room! It could make you a tad hungry if you are addicted to sweets like I am. It could also bring you MANY birthday cupcakes from kids all over the school because they "just have to visit the cupcake room!" That is what they all say at least.

In one week, I'll be on Spring Break.

One week, people.

Do you know what this means?! Awesomeness. It only means awesomeness.

So, I'm getting spring fever like the kids are. I randomly created a countdown yesterday with Easter eggs that I've had sitting in the back of my car for the past year. I'm not exaggerating. I really think these plastic eggs have just been hangin' out in the back of my car for that long. I hate cleaning my car.

Yesterday, I hid it in one of the table buckets crayons.

The little one that found it opened it up and found a note that said he got to choose the clean-up song. He chose, "What Does The Fox Say?" Ding ding ding ding ding ding.

Today, one of my girls found it in her book basket. Whaaaat? Who did that? Me? No, never. Anyway, she got to choose what song to dance to today. She chose "Let It Go". I didn't think it was much of a dance song, but I was wrong. My kids took this to a whole new level. They were dancing and singing their little hearts out. I let the video play on the big screen too, so they were pretty hyped up about it.

Ahh, Elsa... We do love you. Lots.

We started learning time to the hour this week. My firsties rocked it. They absolutely love learning how to tell time and honestly, they made it a breeze to teach!

We played I Spy Time which I got from What The Teacher Wants a long, long time ago.

 If you are teaching time, I suggest you find it on their blog because it's great!


  1. First of all, those pups are just about the cutest things EVER! Secondly, I absolutely hate cleaning out my car, too, and shudder to think of someone climbing in the backseat and what they might find, and third, Let It Go? My kids will. not. stop singing it. :) haha. Have a great last week before spring break...ahem..awesomeness!

    1. Thanks, Kelly! I'm biased, but I love my pups! I'm so glad to find someone else who hates cleaning their car! It's the worse chore ever!! Have a great weekend, dear!

  2. OMG I feel the same way - I ALWAYS want to say y'all but can't because I'm not Southern :(

    "It's my favorite linky because I enjoy talking about myself" - haha! You crack me up!

    Have a good weekend,
    First Time Firstie

  3. I have to wait one week for spring break too. I just keep telling myself.. 5 more days, 5 more days. It will be awesome…one week of R&R… and TpT, of course.
