Five for Friday

This has been a fabulous Friday! Day off for Good Friday. Soooo needed after a week of review for our state tests that are coming up next week.

My favorite link up with Doodle Bug Teaching.

Here is my week in review...

Eggcellent review! Each table got a basket of eggs. Inside were Rachelle Lynette's task cards!
Super fun!

STAAR review of literature terms! Sandra over at Fearless in 5th has a review of vocabulary for literature terms plus bingo cards. I sent an email out for prizes! Fun for Monday! I'm using the STAAR motivation cards to encourage behavior, showing strategies and just cuz! Students put in their tickets and I draw for prizes.

Teamed up with another teacher to review math concepts. With taped math word problems all around our auditorium. The students paired up and wandered around the room working the problems. We stressed the importance of talking math!

No school today! Mom and daughter day...started with a bit of pampering, a bit of planting and then a fabulous dinner with my god daughters.

Happy Friday!
