Five For Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope your week went well!  We are linking up with the amazing Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for the weekly Five for Friday party!  Thank you Kacey!!!
So let’s get the party started, shall we?

I don’t know about you, but it was REALLY a tough week this week.  Ehhhh….they happen! So I found myself looking for humor everyday ’cause we really needed some laughs at school I tell ya!

So this week started off with a good one.  The mystery of the underwear!  My teaching partner pops by my door with a pair of boys underwear dangling off of one finger and a very odd grin on her face!!!!  Whaaatttt???? Yep, seems she found them on her floor.  They weren’t there when the first grade reading group started, but 20 minutes later when they got up to leave….there they were on the floor!  No one in the group fessed up to owning them and they all said they still had their underwear on…soooo……what do you do with that? It was pretty dang funny!

(We think they were clean by the way. Probably a mom put them in the child’s pocket, “just in case.”)

We teachers have super powers!  Yep, we do!  We have antennae that can tell from a hundred paces what’s going on in every corner of the room! We have eyes in the back of our heads!  We can manage 30 kiddos at a time…all while talking to a parent and orchestrating an amazing lesson at the same time!  So three ginormous dogs??? Easy peasy!  Husbands that are not teachers….well…not so much!  They don’t have those antennae or eyes!  Case in point…you would think that when you have a dog as big as your table….you would know not to leave your dinner sitting near the edge while you grabbed a napkin!  I mean it shouldn’t take teacher super powers to know that.  Seems my dear husband needs to work on his super powers, ’cause this is what happens when one of our newfies….Boomer… sees food unattended!  Hey…he’s a growing puppy!

Flip Flops!  Okay, so it’s not so funny, but it sure does feel good!  While our poor, freezing teachers  suffer miserably this winter, we have been having unbelievably warm weather for this time of year in the Seattle area!  It feels so good to break out the flip flops and walk through the grass in February of all things!  Friends who are stuck in the snow…..we’re hoping you’ll be doing this SOON!

I just love me some St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!  It’s a great just-for-fun holiday, right when we need one!  Rosie…..our other newfie….is getting ready for St. Patrick’s day!  She is a style maven and needs things to look just so! A little bit of a diva. Boomer thinks she is craaaazzzzzzy!  But what do boys know anyway??  Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day, we finished our St. Patrick’s Day Leveled Passages set this week.  There are three different texts, each with levels A – I, sight word games, vocabulary games, and a special little craftivity for finding those tricky leprechauns.  If that sounds good to you, you can grab it here.

Hooray for Dr. Seuss!  We’re gettng ready to celebrate his birthday and glorious news breaks! They are publishing a new book by the great author that was previously undiscovered!  Now that IS happy news!  Dr. Seuss books are nothing but happiness!

Have a wonderful, fantastic, full-of-fun weekend everyone!  And let us know in the comments if you have a story that beats the underwear story!  We’d LOVE to hear it!

    I solved the underwear mystery! I bet that the underwear was inside someone's pants and just didn't make it out in the washer and dryer and then fell out at school. The kid probably didn't even know it! Love your dogs and I must tell you that my cats are the same way. They love people food! Have a great weekend!
    Teachers Are Terrific!
