Five for Today! ;-)

Happy weekend!

I CANNOT believe how fast November is going! I like to do a Scholastic News once a week (and my kiddos love them). Yesterday I realized I would need to do one of the Thanksgiving ones on Monday in order to get them both in before break. Only one full week and two days! Yikes!

That also means I need to get busy cleaning and planning for Thanksgiving dinner at my house as well...

Anyway, let's jump to my pics for this week's Five for Friday.


The way we reorganized our day this year gives me a short prep time before I teach science. I love it! The last few years as we cleaned up from math, I sent my 2nd graders out the door to their specials and the Kindergarteners were already waiting for me in the hall. Ugh! 

This way I have been able to prep some more fun activities. The 1st and 2nd graders have been learning about the Solar System, so we finished off the unit by drawing it. I was pretty impressed with how they turned out!


In Kindergarten we've been learning about living things and how they grow and change. We spent a couple of days specifically talking about the frog life cycle. 


I'll be the first to admit that this presidential election was kind of tough for me to be excited about. To keep this from getting political, I'll leave it at that. BUT I wanted my students to know how the process worked and that we could be thankful that the citizens of the United States of America have a voice in choosing their leader. I also wanted them to know how important it is to respect the opinions of others whether our chosen candidate wins or loses--something I wish the protesters would acknowledge at this point. Again, with the politics. So sorry. We studied the branches of government, the election process, U.S. symbols, and the office of the president leading up to Election Day. It was a great way to move into Veteran's Day yesterday!


This just made me laugh. :-) The directions said to write the compound word, but once this was turned in, I could totally see the macaroni. Ha!


No picture on this one...just one word!

If you're a follower of our blog, you know that I have a Bible study being published. It has been a long back-and-forth process, but I finally have the official release dates. The first is my author release date. I can't believe I could be holding my book next month! EEEK! The next date is the official release date. 

So thankful that the Lord has allowed this and that the publication process is nearing an end!

Have a blessed weekend!


  1. Mackerony!!! Love it! It's so wonderful that your Bible study is being published. Will you be sharing where it can be purchased?
