Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

YEAH! It's Five for Friday!!!

Why am I so excited about "Five for Friday"?  I am off today and I can relax and enjoy blogging and creating for TpT!  

Well, my week started off with a lot of fun in celebrating my Austin's birthday with his friends.  Austin is my first grandson and he turned seven years old.  Wow, it just seems like yesterday that he was a little baby.  We had so much fun with friends and family celebrating. 

It was conference week and that makes for late nights preparing for 20 conferences.  It is a lot of hard work and I wonder sometimes if parents know how many hours we spend on each one of their conferences just getting them ready.  We have some awesome families at my school and here is a beautiful "candy bar" and I served myself up a cup of deliciousness to keep my energy up!  

My son couldn't wait to give me my birthday present on Halloween (yep it is my birthday on Halloween) so he gave one of them to me this week.  He found it on Etsy and I LOVE sunflowers and Fall!  This is sitting on my desk right now but I know there is a better place for it when I get my office finished.

Cats!  You have just got to love cats and their personalities or is there a lack of evidence of personality?  Well, watch the video and you make the decision who has the personalities.  I laughed so hard watching this and just had to make it a "share" with all of my "Five for Friday" friends!!!  LOL

I have to close now and go get my car emissions inspection so I can get my car tag before the 31st gets here and I am not legal on the road.  I don't know if you have to do this or not but I dread doing this every single year.  I am always holding my breath hoping that my car will pass each year since it is so old.  

SO!  Here is to long weekends, family and friends!  Hope your weekend is a great one and brings lots of blessings!

Five for Friday Weekly LInky Party with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

Click Above to Link Up with Doodle Bugs Teaching

YEAHHHH!  It is Five for Friday, one of my most favorite posting times of the week!  This has been a fun and eventful week in my first grade classroom.  

This week we started doing assessments for reports cards and I don't like doing them because I already know what my kiddos can do.  We have to have proof of what our students are doing though don't we?  Boooo Hisssss!!!  

This week we also had "Paperless Thursday" and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be and the day went by really fast!  We got to use iPods, iPads and laptops and the kids enjoyed using them and were so excited!

 Each Friday right after lunch I always have "Funny Video Friday".  The kids can't get back to the room fast enough, get their lunch boxes put away and on the carpet.  Today we watched the Nolan Cheese commercial but you HAVE to preface it with "the mouse is NOT real" or you will have screaming first graders on your hands!

 Here is the video that we watched today and they laughed so hard.  I guess I finally got a group of firsties that appreciate my off beat sense of humor.  LOL
You can see my firsties doing the bench press move with the mouse in the video.  They are so much fun!!!

Today is our Fall Festival and the kids were so wound up and excited for tonight.  No pictures for this one but I know they are having a great time!

I am at home in the comfort of my room enjoying the peace and quiet and I can't tell you how much I LOVE my weekends after such a crazy week.

Hope you ALL have a great and fun weekend!
