Five for BLUE Friday!!!!

Happy BLUE Friday everyone!! We are linking up with Kacey from Doodlebugs this week for a little Five for Friday action.

So let’s get this started with Monday. Monday around here was beautiful! It was mid-sixites, warm and sunny. Of course, I had to go to school. Well my daughter had it off, her district was having a work day, and my husband had the day off. So they got to stay home and play outside. Now…we have 2 fairly big dogs. Do you know what that means? LOTS of land mines in my yard. That’s right people…poop. Well I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that poop and kiddos is NOT a fun combination. SO my husband is chief pooper scooper. So back to Monday… I sent my hubs a message at lunch to see how their day was going. This is what I got…
I think it’s safe to say that he gets excited by the little things in life…

 SEA-HAWKS!!!! That’s right! These sweet hats are what we are making tomorrow!! My kiddos saw this one, my sample, today and boy are they excited!! The excitement is in the air…AKA…crazy kiddos!

 You guys… I have found the magic books!!! I am talking books that magically make the kiddos get excited about reading and have them reading all the time AND on task!

I’m not kidding! My kiddos LOVE these books! They are all filled with random facts. All day long I hear, “Mrs. Sanchez did you know…” I mean talk about high interest.

Then we found this fact…

“Mrs. Sanchez!!!!!! It’s just like Elsa!!!!”

It always comes back to Elsa.

So…like I said…we are Hawks fans. Well, you have to be if you grew up in the Seattle area and had a dad and brother like mine. I am not a diehard fan…I mean I can miss a game or two and not freak out. BUT, at my school when the Seahawks make it to the Superbowl this happens…

This is in our copy room right now:)


GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!

Let’s hope for a GREAT weekend!!!

    Oh Linds,
    The poop text from Adam was hilarious! It is the little things in life. 🙂 I LOVE the seahawks hats. Do you have a pattern? Thinking Suri and Levi could make them on Sunday. I'll have to check out those books. I love the book ban, file it under fiction… that looks like Kim Freeman's work?? 🙂 Happy Friday and go Hawks!

    Joya 🙂

    The National Geographic books look awesome. i teach high school but my students love the Ripley's Believe It or Not book I have. Weird stuff is always a winner.

    Hey, a quality pooper scooper is a wonderful thing to have. My son really likes those weird but true books. I want to get some of the National Geographic joke books. I just think my classroom library is missing a bin of joke books. I'm a New England girl, but I don't watch football. So, I'm not in the least offended by the Patriots slamming! Have a great weekend.

    LOL, that text could totally have happened in my household, too. I can't imagine the excitement for your students with the big game! Good luck! Jen

    I'm going to order those National Geographic books! We'll be starting our informational reading & writing unit in a few weeks, so those will make a great addition to our classroom library. Good luck tomorrow! 🙂
