Fabulous Five for Friday!

Yay!! It's FINALLY Friday! Thank goodness this week of craziness is coming to an end! I am so happy to be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another fabulous Friday linky.

Here is my week of randomness....

1. We brought some Lucky Charms into our class to entice all the leprechauns out there. Just kidding, we used them to practice our graphing skills of course. I love doing this every year and so do the kids.

2. We started our study of plants this week and read an informational text about plant parts. So, I decided to adapt some of Linda Kamp's plant unit to work for my kiddos. We made a version of her plant book. The back side has information about the different plant parts and how they help the plant grow.

3. We started place value this week in math. Everyone made a place value flip book to show knowledge of number words, expanded form and standard form of a number. Click HERE to take you to my blog post where you can grab your FREE template to use with your students too.

4. I had this deliciousness for dinner tonight with my boys. We went out to eat while dad was out at a baseball poker fundraiser. I think we lucked out! The pizza was amazing!

5. Now, I just have to do a little momma bragging. Bear with me.... my oldest son hit the season's first over the wall home run in his little league baseball game Monday night!!!! We are all so excited for him! 

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to head on over and link up with your fabulous week of randomness too! I can't wait to read what you have all been up to!
