Five for Friday


Happy Friday, fashionistas!  Woohoo!  I've been absent from the Five for Friday linky party for quite some time, so I'm extra pumped for today's post!  Enjoy! :)

  

I picked up this long sleeved tee up at LOFT last week, and it's the best investment I've made in quite awhile!  It looks great with leggings for lounging or running errands, or I can throw on my pink puffer vest and black skinnies for workIt even works with a cowl scarf or fun necklace for the weekend!  Find the grey tee here.

  

I updated my Wise Writers bulletin board to include the steps of the writing process, including mneumonic devices for revising and editing.  Find these cute posters on Teachers Pay Teachers, here.



To help cure the January blues, I've been drinking A LOT of Sea Salt Carmelicious coffees this week!  Thank goodness for Christmas gift cards from my students to get me through these long, COLD days!  Is it spring yet? :)

  

My fourth graders have been working hard this week on our Reading Street skill, comparing and contrasting.  I found the idea for this anchor chart on Pinterest, and it has been so helpful to have up in the room to cue students when searching for clue words in the text.  
 

We've also plunged head first into our geometry unit.  These FREE posters from Teachers Pay Teachers have served as excellent reminders of our complicated vocabulary!  Unfortunately, I can't find the link for you :(



With yesterday being the 100th day of school, and celebrating TWO students' birthdays, it's safe to say it was a pretty crazy day in fourth grade!

The students were greeted with a note and treat on their desks to start off the day!


Has anyone seen the iphone app that makes you look old? Another teacher showed it to me, and used it for a writing activity with her students today.  Such a fun idea for the 100th day!  I enjoyed showing my students what their 100 year old teacher would look like!

For math today, I hid 100 Hershey's kisses around the room with numbers 1-100 on the bottom.  Students seached around the room for the kisses, and then had to write a math problem for which their number was the answer.  Before finding their next kiss, students colored in the hundreds chart on the SMART Board so we knew once we had found them all!

Whew!  What a crazy week!  This fashionista is MORE than ready for the weekend to be here!  Hope to see you back here soon! :)
