Five for Friday {3-1-13}

Happy Friday!  I’m linking up with Doodle Bugs for my fave weekly linky!


My Number One Guy {besides the Mr., of course} moved to Florida this week.  {If you are a 2nd grade teacher in Florida, and the cutest boy in the world named Jefferson walked into your room this week, you need to email me STAT}.  I am in mourning.  I LOVE this kid.  Adorable.  Hilarious.  Intelligent.  Kind. Creative.  One of a Kind.  And cute, cute, cute.  It’s killing me that I had to smack a heart over his face because you would just MELT.  I miss him so much but I hope he is loving life in sunny Florida! 


We’re polishing up our adjective skills in 2nd grade and we’re having a fun time doing it!  I blogged about this activity last year and it includes a freebie!  Click here if you’re interested in reading more about “Sweet Adjectives”.


We’re all about the rainbows in March!  My class made the name rainbow version of this team sign, and came up with 6 adjectives that describe themselves.  Next week, they’ll pick the ones that describe them most and write about them.  I forgot to take a shot of my bulletin board this week, but I’ll be sure to upload a shot later.


I’m not Catholic, but I was inspired by my friends who were, to give up a vice for a short period of time.  I decided on red meat and fried foods. I don’t eat either one of them on an everyday basis but I do eat both more than I think I should.  It wasn’t going too bad until my husband decided he wanted steak for dinner.  Luckily my salmon was delicious!

I was lucky enough to win Alisha’s “Birthday Centers” honoring “You Know Who”!  I’m so excited to break them out next week when our school celebrates Read Across America {yes, we’re bucking the trend and participating NEXT week!}  I love her stuff so this win was a big one for me!

That’s about it for me!  Off to read everyone else’s Five for Fridays.  Go link up!

Have a great weekend,
