Five for Friday Linky Party

      I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday Linky Party!  This is my first time linking up and I am excited to join in on the fun!  Don't forget to stop over and link up.

Here are my 5 random things from this week:
    1.  This was a LONG week! Valentine's Day was CRAZY in my room.  The kiddos were bouncing off the walls even before they had any sugar!  How about your students?  I am ready for the weekend!  We were supposed to have a teacher workday on Monday but due to a snow day, we are making up our teacher workday on President's Day. 
   2.   My students made some super cute Valentine's Crafts for their parents.  I found it over at The Inspired Apple, last year.   Here is my example that I use for the students to follow when they make their own posters.

     3.   We read about one of my favorite characters yesterday, Amelia Bedelia!  I let the kids guess what we were going to read and I told them it was one of my favorite characters.  Once I said it wasn't SkippyJon Jones, they knew it must be Amelia Bedelia!  Click on her name and grab a copy!  I created a packet to go along with this book that I hope to use next year, but this year I already had my week planned out before the packet was created.                                                                                                                                                 

     4.  My student teacher started teaching science this week!  It is great working with her and I am really excited to see her continue to grow!  She just joined our classroom a few weeks ago because of some changes in my school. 

     5.  Not school related- I had a nice Valentine's Day.  It was very low key, but what I needed after a busy day at school!  I received pretty flowers from my boyfriend and a sweet card from my Mom!  :)

I hope you had a great week and a nice Valentine's Day.
