Five for Friday Spring Break Edition

Hey All!

I am linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. I have to say this is one of my all time favorite linkys.

This year I attempted to make my own Easter dinner. It turned out so delicious but I had a ton of leftover ham. So I searched Pinterest (What did I ever do without this site?) for a delicious round 2 recipe. I found this White Bean and Ham recipe. Yum Yum!
My mom and I had a girls day. We got facials and had lunch at this cute little place right on the Puget Sound. My mom also brought me these beautiful flowers from her garden.
When we get back to school from Spring Break, we will be diving into measurement. I started making my new unit. Take a look at one of the activities we will be doing.
My students will be racing matchbox cars and measuring the distance. I did this activity last year with my students and it was a HUGE hit! What's not to like about racing matchbox cars?
For months I have been stashing my center pieces into a box and telling myself "I'll deal with them later." Well, my box is overflowing and it is an eyesore. I took a day from my break to organize my centers and try to come up with a system that would make it easy next year when I try to use the centers again. I forgot to take a picture of the before but here is one during the process.
Did you see that Teaching Blog Addict is turning 2? They are hosting a GIANT linky. There are over 500 freebies under the 1st and 2nd grade category. I spent the morning downloading, printing, and cutting all the wonderful freebies I snagged.
Enjoy your weekend.


  1. We know about the "big stack" that needs to be organized/cleaned up/ stored! It just grows and grows until break time! Love the measuring idea with cars!
