Five for Friday {11/1/13}


 Turtle Power!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!  My boys had a great time at our church's Trunk or Treat and Trick or Treating.  We have more candy than necessary, so it will be making it's way to my classroom :)

I had a "why didn't I think of this sooner" moment last Friday.  My students were taking a paper/pencil benchmark test and I didn't want to flip through all those pages 24 times, so I had the students write their answers on a half sheet of paper.  This was also great practice for them for the End of Grade test at  the end of the year.  I had them ALL graded in 10 minutes!

 Last Friday my hubby and I attended "Love Worth Fighting For" with Kirk Cameron at a local church.  It was a great night and filled with a great message.

Here is a sneak peek to my Mathematical Monday post.  I completed a new Thanksgiving/Fall Math Pack and we used the "Sweet Angles" craftivity for our 4th grade Math Fall Festival. This pack review 4.G.2 & 4.NBT.1-6.

This week our students have been running for Student Council.  Every student in our school is required to write a speech, but not required to run.  Those who do want to run for student council are required to make a poster.  This is one of my students made, I LOVE the Dr. Seuss twist!

Thank you for all your love and support during my "Year of Blogging" celebration!  Congrats to Allee & Markisha!
