Five for Friday...ON TIME!!!

We are linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her

and the best part is....we are actually on time!!!!  Woo hoo!!!!!  I swear, since having children I am always playing catch up!  Since Katie has 3 kiddos of her own she is always in the same boat.  We seem to always take turns texting each other to please turn on my computer because I am running late!!!

On to 5 for Friday!
1. Animal Talks Field Trip
We walk to the high school that is right by our school and the student naturalist have centers set up with their animals.  We get to rotate around learning about and touching the animals.  Weeeeelllll, let me clarify...the KIDS touch the animals!  Not this squeamish lady!!!!  We get to cross a really busy road on this walk and it is always hilarious as we hustle the children across.  
On a side note, I thought I was doing so good (I'm 8 1/2 months prego now) and truckin along as we walked to the high school.  THEN I hustled my little cherubs across the road, convinced 3 of my boys that I really would have a heart attack if they walked THAT close to the road, and told my little naughty of the year that if he didn't listen I WOULD call the principal to come and pick him up.  After that I lost all of my energy and started waddling like a VERY prego lady.  Doggonnit!!!!!!!

2. Jenna lost a tooth! 
 Katie's little cutie patootie lost another tooth and this picture is too adorable not to share!  Yay Jenna!!!

3. End of year ordering.
We always have to order our next year's supplies by the end of April.  We get $50 to spend now on things and then we can still check out our school credit cards at the beginning for whatever else we forgot, but this is the fun time for ordering! Plus I will be on maternity leave at the beginning of the year so I am trying to get everything ready ahead of time for my sub so that I will not be dragging 2- 2 year olds and a 2 month old up to school to try to get stuff ready!  (Just saying that amount of children and imagining bringing them up to school with me while trying to get stuff done strikes fear in my heart!!!) :)

4.  It is ALMOST May!!!!!!!
Had to share where both my calendar and Katie's calendar are right now!  We are SO close to May and an end of year countdown.  We have 1 more story in our reading book and one more spelling list to get through and then we can start the fun end of year stuff!  It always gets the kiddos motivated!  If you are looking for something fun to do with your kiddos at the end of the year check out our End of Year Fun unit on TPT!!

5. Indoor Recess
Boo hiss!  We were supposed to have some pretty decent weather and at the last minute we got rain!  Ugh! These little darlings need to be outside running!  Instead we are inside for recess.  It never fails in Katie's room that her kids sit right in front of her desk with the legos and argue over them the ENTIRE recess. AT least the next 4 days are supposed to be gorgeous!

  1. Your End of the Year unit looks great! I finished my reading series in March, so we're been working on root words. But, we're almost done with that program, too, so I'll need something for the last couple of weeks! This might fit the bill!
    P.S. that little girl is a DOLL! Love her striped shirt and flower headband, too :)

  2. We were in the exact same boat with recess today! My kids were so bummed! The other class just got outside and had to come back in and the teacher told us it started to rain. We've had too many inside recesses lately, so we are ready for nice weather!!
