Five For Friday

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday! Here's my top 5 for the week.

Last week we had our elf on the shelf Bruno join our class. I'm at a new school this year so he took a little longer to find us, perhaps because someone's garage was a little unorganized.. But none the less he has been moving all over our room and cracking up kiddos like usual.

We were a little worried how Stubs would react to sharing his tank but they seemed to become great friends! :)

Despite the craziness of the last week before break, my students have still been very motivated to practice their multiplication and division facts! I love how filled up our monster is, we needed to introduce a new one! Each time a student passes a math fact they add to the monster. It's funny to see how our monster grows and even has teeth on its feet HA!

I've also dusted off my circuit machine to livin up the room a bit. I wanted to make my focus board a little more cohesive yet simple. The message should be clear and consise for my students and for visitors to see what we're learning. I think it's really coming along!

Not only is my classroom getting a makeover but so are my nails! I just got the jamberry gel enamel system as a Christmas gift and I'm in LOVE! It really stays on there, so next time I'll be a little more careful and stay in the lines :) If you haven't tried Jamberry wraps or the gel enamel it really is the lazy girl solution to great looking nails. Coming from someone who goes to school with wet hair and half my makeup on, this is something I can keep up with!

..and let's not forget, IT'S OFFICIALLY CHRISTMAS BREAK!!!!!! Looking forward to the next 17 days of no alarms!

Link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share 5 exciting thoughts from your week! 

Rock on,



  1. Yay for Christmas Break!! :)

    Also, I am totally obsessed with Jamberry wraps, but have never tried the gels!

  2. The monster idea is so cute! I just smiled as I realized I have no alarms set, what a nice feeling!
