Finally! Five for Friday! And Earth Day Packet Giveaway!

Yea!  It's Friday, and I am excited to finally be linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday. 


Here's some of the things that's been going on around here:

1).  I am so proud of my girls for both making their volleyball teams!  I was so afraid that we were going to have one of those heartbreak moments where one girl made it, and the other one didn't.  I'm so glad they both made their teams! 

2).  I'm getting ready for summer!  At least I'm getting our pool ready.  We opened it up this week, and I can't wait until warm weather to be able to jump in.  This is our first summer to have the pool all summer long!  :)

3).  My students reviewed adjectives by creating a cute puppy drawing and listing adjectives to describe their puppies.  After drawing a cute puppy, they listed nouns about their dog.  Then, in a column beside their nouns, they listed adjectives to describe that particular aspect of their puppy.  They then used both the nouns and adjectives in a descriptive paragraph. 

4).  We were dismissed early Thursday because of a risk of severe weather.  I am so thankful that we did not have any problems in our county, but my heart goes out to those who had damage from the storms.  I took advantage of my time at home and cleaned my front porch. I have a country porch with rails that don't have to be painted, but must be cleaned often to stay nice and white. Since the rain had soaked down my columns and rails, I simply wiped all of the dirt and pollen away.  (So much easier than waiting until summer.)  I also washed 9 loads of laundry and even took a little nap! 

5).  Finally, my Earth Day Language Arts Packet is full of fun language arts activities that your students will enjoy.  My class loves the puzzle pages and begs for more.  This Earth Day Language Arts Packet is on sale now through Sunday 1/2 off!  Just click on an image below to go to my Tpt store.  Also, leave a comment and your email address, and I will randomly choose 1 winner to receive my Earth Day Packet!  A winner will be chosen and announced next Friday! 

Be Blessed!

  4. Ohh- I'd love to win!

  5. Wow! You were very productive on your early dismissal day! I would have probably settled for the nap only ;). So happy for both of your girls!

  6. I love your student's pictures of puppies - that is a great activity. We sometimes write persuasive paragraphs about what puppy would be the best for us - I love them. Our school was closed for two days because of ice - so we are very far away from pool weather. Have a great weekend!

Love the cute puppy activity. :) I'm following you via Google Friend Connect now and I wanted to let you know I stumbled back onto your blog today from a post I pinned of your sweet owls some time ago! I finally got around to making the owls and may blog about them soon! They are so cute and I'm so excited about them, so thank you very much for the idea!! You inspired me. ;) May I put a link to your post if I blog about them?
