Happy, happy, happy Friday everyone! Howzabout some Five For Friday? Thanks so much to Doodlebugs Teaching for sponsoring Five For Friday! It is so great to read them all and see what you are all up to! Usually I like to do a theme for Five For Friday, but this week it really is all random!
What kind of Seattle girls would we be if we didn’t start out with this?
Go Hawks! Go Hawks! Go Hawks! (They’re just so awesome!)

What’s up in School Land??? Assessing, assessing, assessing! We’re finishing a schoolwide benchmark assessment period as we get ready for regrouping of our reading groups! Here we are assessing our schoolwide phonics continuum and our schoolwide high-frequency word lists. 🙂 So if you meet up with me and wonder why my eyes might be kinda, sorta, red and crossed……these are the reason why!
Life in Newfieland – Episode 792
Me: Boomer…have you seen the pillows that belong on the couch?
Boomer: ….silence…pleading the 5th evidently…. (And notice how he is a master at avoiding eye-contact!) You Are So Busted Boomer! Guess I’ll be shopping for new pillows this weekend! (Insert secret shout of Yay! Any excuse to go shopping for the house is a good one! Just don’t tell the puppies that, okay? 😉
We teachers will do just about anything to get kiddos to remember their learning! One of the third graders just couldn’t remember the sound of ou, no matter what we did! So in I come with bandaids all over my hand which I rip off quickly and dramatically and shout, “Ow!” It wasn’t quite an academy award worthy performance, but…..it worked! The kiddos of course got their own bandaids to wear with a reminder of the sound and a reminder never to rip them off quickly! Hey, whatever works, right?
Addicted! That’s me! I am addicted to Downton Abbey! Yep….you’ll find me glued to it every Sunday night. And last week when Mary said, “OOoooo…Granny has a past!”…that was just the best! If you are a Downton addict…you get what I’m talking about. If you aren’t…you really should check it out.
Have a great weekend everyone!
