Five for Friday June 14

Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

It may "seem" like I posted twice in one day...but the other Linky party doesn't count for today...why you ask??? Because I started the post on Thursday before midnight and finished after midnight...So it counts for Thursday (right?!?!).

It's been quite a week!
Here's MY five...

1. Scary Storms! We were pounded with 3 severe storms in a row over several hours! Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, Tornado Warnings, Flood Warnings. Glad we were all safe! The storms uprooted some of the flowers I JUST planted, so I had to shove them back in the soil...easy-peasy.
Here's one of the quick snapshots I took of the clouds.

2. Got my flowers planted FINALLY! They turned out pretty... and I spend lots of summer time on my front porch and back yard patio. Here are just a few....

3. I went to Walmart one day and was checking of the workers had these lovelies and I just asked if I could have them for my classroom! He let me take them! Oh the possibilities! Place Value, Money Unit-store...
So fun! Hubby just shook his head at me.

4. Reading a Book...I finished reading Notice and Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Beers and Probst. Has some great ideas and I really like the signposts. Now I need to plan my lessons...HOWEVER..the book comes with the Intro Lessons! NIIIIICE. I highly recommend the book!

5. Math Word Wall Cards...I'm making Cards to display in the room for easy reference. They are taking quite a bit of time...but I like them and I hope they help my colleagues or anyone else. They are CCSS aligned and also align with the My Math series.

WOW. Blogger is sssslllllloooooowwwww today!


  1. How lucky to scoop up those Walmart numbers - the possibilities are endless.

  2. I love your flowers. My husband just shakes his head at me sometimes too.
