Five for Friday

Hey yall!
Thank goodness its Friday. I didn't quite think I was going to make it this week! But Friday's here and all is well in the world :)
I'm linking up again with Casey.
Here's my random 5 for the week:
1. This little one came up to me during reading one day and said "Mrs. Lemacks, I made a text-to-text connection!" He was so super excited and I couldn't have been more proud.
2. We played this fun math game this week to celebrate Earth Day. This is from the fabulous Kelly Dolling over at Teacher Idea Factory.
3. We worked a lot with our hundreds {and 120s chart} this week. These kiddos were playing tic-tac-toe.
4. The hubs and I spent some time working in our yard this week. We have all these huge bushes in front of our house that we just weren't crazy about. So we decided to redneck it and just yank them out with some chains and the truck :) The hubs was absolutely giddy!
5. The end of the semester is drawing near and I am sooo ready to be done with this thesis class! Unfortunately, I won't be done with my actual thesis until December, just getting through the beginning phases. I'm actually here at my university's computer lab trying to get my research proposal done....see how focused I am????


  1. The Giving Tree is my FAVORITE book! I'm going to need to check out Mr. Hacker now!

    Lucky to Be in First

  2. Haha! Love how you all removed the tree! =)

  3. Oh my gosh - finished grad school last May and it was.not.soon.enough! Somehow I am still taking classes, though, so I totally sympathize with you. I'm the queen of procrastination :)

    Adventures in Kindergarten

  4. Ugh! Hang in there on the thesis stuff. I remember those day! Looks like you had a busy, productive week though. :o)
    Traditions, Laughter and Happily Ever After

  5. I love the text to text connections.... Well I have very busy first grade to say in the least , and when they show what they know I am sooooo proud! Good Job!!!

  6. My husband is a crazy person about yard work! Me, not so much!!!!!! Happy weekend!
