Five for Friday

I'm joining in on the fun with a little Five for Friday!  Here is a little peek in to the life of ME!  

1. We had a "Glow Dance" at school.  It's part of our PBIS Good Behavior Program.  The kids had too much fun dancing to Justin Bieber and doing the Cha Cha Slide.  Not gonna lie, the teachers were living it up as well.  One of the 1st grade teachers was leading the conga line in the pic!  But let me tell you, that room stunk with a capital S when it was time to leave.  Needless to say I think everyone had stinkin' (tee hee) great time!

2.  You know you are going to have a good day when one of your littles brings you chocolate cake and a picture to go with it!  She is very proud of that fact that she "lisns" to me.  Also, I have great posture and apparently I am able to levitate.  Oh the superpowers of a teacher!

3.  PTL our State Standardized Testing is over!  Luckily in 1st grade we only have 2 days of testing, but let me tell you it is hard to keep 25 first graders quiet and still for 2 hours at a time.  They were rewarded today with their good testing skills with a little "Rest After the Test".  They got to were their pajamas to school and have a movie day this afternoon!  

4.  I went to Auburn this past weekend to visit Mr. Coach.  I was out looking for houses and came across this little gem.  Yes those are bikes acting as a fence for the house.  And yes the house is in the shape of a hexagon.  Oh the things you come across in Alabama.  

5.  Really missing my Coach!  While I am so happy to be finishing out my year with my 1st graders, I am super ready to be with my hubby again!  I can't wait to move to Alabama (we lived in Montgomery for 3 years, and I NEVER thought we would move back to Alabama) to be with him.  I think our dog Bear is missing him too!

Well that is it friends!  I hope everyone has a great weekend, I am off to finish my second Common Core Pack for Geometry.   I am hoping to have it done by Sunday!  Don't forget to go and check out my first Common Core Crazy Pack for Numbers and Operation in Base Ten.  You can check it out by clicking on the link below!
