Five for Friday:April 20-something

I can’t remember if it is the 25th or the 26th. It was that kind of week!


I love Hope King’s iPoetry set! I used some new clip art and our fancy giant printer to create a sign. We are still adding to out Poetry Playlists, but I couldn’t wait to put them up in the hallway!


I used my same clip art to create patterns for iPads and iPods. We paired with a former student teacher of mine-turned 4th grade teacher down the hall for the Earth Day Door Decorating Contest.

I’d planned to put a couple of empty soda cans at the top, but I couldn’t find any.
We had fun with it!

This is the poster we made for my student teacher on her last day.


We also made books for her. The first was teaching tips and a little message and picture. The second was a book of “Me Poems” they wrote about Ms. Smith.

I have books like these from my own student teaching days. They are treasures!

On an almost non-school related note, I am so excited to get my haircut in the morning! I am having a lesson taped next week. The thought of watching back the tape with my hair the way it is was too much for me! I’m just getting a trim, but I am really looking forward to it.
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Hi! We must be on the same schedule because you are always right before me on Five For! This is the 2nd if not 3rd time. Ha! I love how you spelled out Thank You with your kids.
