Five for Friday at 11 p.m.!

Nov 15, 2013

This week Em let me link up with Doodle Bugs for the weekly Five for Friday!  :)


So... here it goes.......  I hope I don't disappoint. 


My oldest was off school today and her aunt came to pick her up to spend the weekend at her house.  :)  This is the note my middle wrote to her.  So sweet.  I LOVE those tears.  :)  I think this could be the first time you are seeing my girls names.  Well... now you know.  :)


This week we started preparing to write our next writing piece.  It's going to be an informational piece about Long Ago, but that's not the best part.  The BEST part is our firsties are writing them on the IPADS!!!!!  We use an app called Scribble Press (check it out!) and I am 50 kinds of in love with it!  So this picture is our lowest group practice and people they were Q.U.I.E.T.  I know!!!!!  You did read that right.  You could have heard a pin drop in my room with this group and that is NOT ordinary.  They are also 50 kinds of *in love* with this app.  :)  We'll see how next week goes which leads me to .......


During our Quiet 10, Em and I *try* to resist the urge not to check in with each other about what's going to happen for the writing lessons and where we're headed.  Today I was writing during one of our groups to prepare my story to share next week. During our last writing group today Em took part in the fun too!  Don't you love her cow?  :) 


If you read my post a few (probably more than a few :) ) weeks ago I think I put our Five Star Sentence chart.  I have been TRYING with ALL my MIGHT to get these kiddos to remember capital letters and punctuation.  Some days... it makes me NUTS. :)  So we started a "Five Star Hall of Fame" in our hallway.  It's for firsties and..... our seconds (is there a cute name for second graders out there?).  These were our first firsties who got their STAR.

And finally...... drum roll please......

dun, dun, dun...........  These are all the papers that need to be graded and entered in the computer.  Most of the white papers have been entered, but I still have a TON more to enter and grade.  :)  Then, I have to start working on typing up these stories for a *SURPRISE* we have for our firsties next month. :)  Stay tuned!

It's your turn now... go and link up friends!!!!!

Have a Curious Weekend Friends,


  1. The note from your little girl was sooo sweet! I'm so behind, I've never used an ipad and we don't have them at school...maybe one day. One your 5 Star Sentence Stars, did you have a star for each of the 5 expectations and they signed the ones they had mastered or did they have to master all of them to put their star up? Yeah, I can't think of a cute name for second grade..secondies, just doesn't sound right does it. ;P Have a wonderful weekend!
    I'm Not Your Grandpa, I'm Your Teacher
