Five for Friday...Giveaway Style!!!!

Five for Friday
     I am back with another Five for Friday, except this time it is also letting you know about my first ever giveaway, too!  Here are five random things from this past week. Click on the picture to head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to link up!

1.  Yesterday I posted my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!  This is so exciting for me.  I am not real tech savvy, so this is a huge step for me.  Make sure to enter!  The giveaway ends this Sunday at midnight.   Click on the picture above to head over and enter in the giveaway!

2.  Pure exhaustion!  This week was a CRAZY Week.  So number two isn't really one random thing from my week, but more like, multiple random things.  This week was our spirit week, which meant crazy hat day, crazy hair day, tacky wacky day, sports team day, and finally school spirit day.  To top it off, today was school spirit day and we had a pep rally.  Not to mention it was picture day!!!!  Could we squeeeeeze any thing more in?  Yes, Yes we could...check out number 3!

3.  Rock Day!  Rock Day is a day where we finalize our unit of Earth materials (pebbles, sand, silt, clay, etc.).  The students rotate today through a variety of stations.  They students make pet rocks, clay beads, go fossil finding, gem mining, they make fossils, they play with "boulders", they watch a movie about rocks, use the iPads to search on Google Earth, and MORE!  This a stressful day for those planning it, but it is so rewarding to see the smiles on the faces of our students. 

4.  Lesson Plans.  What are those?  I have really enjoyed NOT writing lesson plans for the last month.  I LOVE teaching, but I write lesson plans for my administration in case they need to see them, not for myself.  I prefer to write lists of what I need to teach and spreadsheets for my blocks of time.  This week I started teaching again and that means I am back at the lesson planning. 

5.  Planting Seeds.  This week we planted our seeds on Monday and they are already growing! Can you believe that?  I have never had seeds sprout that fast!  I am so excited and so are the kiddos!  We will observe our seeds as they continue to sprout and grow into plants.  I meant to take pictures today and I forgot with everything else going on.  I will take pictures next week!
