Five for Friday

Well, this week flew by!


Divider 1
Meet my new friend...Mini :)
She's pre-loved, but we've been getting along great so far.

I would love any app suggestions that you have-but this is the only iPad in my classroom and the kids will probably not be touching it all that much. :)

(And, please tell me if it is worth it to buy the full version of Confer and/or Chronicle...thoughts appreciated!)

Divider 2
Since Mini and I are getting along so well, I've joined Instagram! (My phone is not all! ;)

Divider 3
We took 2 out of the 3 MAP Tests this week...
which led to some professional reading time for me!

Divider 4

We started our Explorer unit (or resumed it from our sea monster maps! :).

First up, our Sailing Journey... (here and here)

We're also working our way through a set of 'articles' I wrote last year. I've modified them a little this year to have a short worksheet instead of a foldable-it will be a little more focused!

Except I want the article and organizer side by side, and we had an extra page in our notebooks, so...
A nice intro page to the unit! :)
Divider 5

We've been hitting the fractions hard...and I've been seeing some great understanding!
Stay warm this weekend!

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. Happy Friday! I found your blog from the Doodle Bugs linky party! You have a really pretty blog! Thanks for sharing your hard work! I love your maps!

  2. Oh, you are in the midst of things I love to teach- explorers and fractions! I only teach science now, but I do remember all those exploration projects we did many years ago! Have a great week!
    Teachers Are Terrific!


Thanks for visiting and leaving a smile! :) I like to smile back via email, so please make sure you're not a no-reply blogger. :)
