Five for Friday

fiveforfriday
 
TGIF! I’m linking up again this week with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday. It was a busy week!
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
I found “Edible Idioms” in this book from Scholastic. I’ve done them for the last several years. My student teacher did it with the class last week. They came out better than ever!

The used construction paper scraps to fill their plate with idioms. I love it!
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
I found these printables from The Teacher Wife that I used to make Valentine’s for my kids’ day care classes.

In rereading it I found that she taped the hearts onto the glow sticks. That would have been much faster than the hole punching I spent far too long working on. Oops!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Also from The Teacher Wife was the Love Pox. I was at Michaels the night before looking for heart stickers. I found one sad little package left on the shelf, but it worked perfectly. I will be spreading the Love Pox again next year!
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
My class had a breakfast party for Valentine’s Day. The room parents came in and made fresh waffles. We started the day with fruit and waffles and Valentine’s. I LOVE breakfast parties. I also love waffles. It is a win-win!

My husband delivered these daffodils to school on Valentine’s Day.

My fourth grade teacher had us memorize the poem “Daffodils” by William Wordsworth. When the Irishman and I were dating, I went to visit him several times across the pond. In Ireland and then in England when he was in uni, we walked through the daffodils reciting the poem. I love flowers with meaning!

Happy Friday!
 
Have a great weekend!

  12. It sounds like you had a lovely week. What an adorable story about the daffodils. I love stories like that. The edible idioms are a wonderful idea. I will have to remember that one. I have found that students love using food to learn about different topics. (I am your newest follower.)
