Five for Friday

Happy Friday!

We'll still keeping super busy-our days always are flying by!

Last night, I got a delivery.

After a few hours of following directions, I now have a beautiful
buffet! (Which I'm using to store yarn, because what else would I use it for? :P )

It's a really nice navy color, and ties in nicely with the other furniture pieces in my apartment.

I have a Methods student this year (the step right before student teaching), and she has been doing some banging math lessons!

She's been doing her lessons on making a table, and she came up with a really cool game (or found it-but I never would of thought of it!)

She came up with Data War!
The kids use a deck of cards to play war normally, but then they create a tally table for each 'battle', win, lose or tie. My kids were super engaged (and loud, but I told her that it was okay, because it was 'productive' talk :), and I think they loved it!

Since I had a little extra time this weekend, I made some yummy apple crisp!

I use the recipe for allrecipes.com-it's about half gone!

I also got 'Boo'ed!


Since I had to Boo two people in response, they got something a little extra...

Last, but certainly not least...

I finally bought a smart phone! (Right now, I have what the kids call a 'dumb' phone! :)

I do a prepaid plan (because really, I only use it to talk to my parents and get those ever important 'No School' phone calls :), and my 'year' is up soon.

Since I have to re-up my year, I figured it was a good time to switch phones-my other one is 5 years old!

It should (hopefully) be here soon-I did get a reconditioned one to save about half. Here's hoping I like it!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn

  1. Those card games are so genius! Something about making it a competition really keeps the students engaged and practicing skills!
