Five for Friday

Hey there! I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and I have lots to share for Five for Friday since I missed last week!

Last week was teacher appreciation and I feel so blessed to have such an awesome group of kiddos! Hubby started it off with flowers and candy :) and as much as I love the treats and goodies, it's the cards that melt my heart! 

This card just got me y'all! ❤️

This week we have been patiently awaiting the arrival of our quail chicks! 

Ok that's a lie we're not patient at all!! I want these little boogers to hatch already! I've done chicks in the past and wanted to spice it up with a tiny version that only needs 14 days :) We will hopefully have adorable button size quail on Monday! Pics will be taken!! Many many pics!

We had our field day last week which was a blast! I just had to share this to show how great my kids are. I know I'm bragging here, but look at this teamwork! They are literally carrying me to the next station! It only took like 15 of them to pick me up.. Time to revisit my workout/diet plan! LOL. 

During the Teacher Appreciation TpT sale I snagged this product for a multistep math "pick a path" activity. My kiddos worked in groups and read a story about being pirates trying to beat a rival pirate gang, the "multistep marauders" to a treasure. It was a blast!! I was a nice challenge for my third graders. They each chose different paths during the story and each group solved different multistep problems and found treasure at the end. They were begging to play again! Lots of giggles and excitement during this activity, and of course deep thinking!

Farm update!

This is "Hot Mess" who's just glowing with her beautiful baby bump and fresh hair cut! Can't wait to meet her babies in June!!

Hope everyone had a great Teacher Appreciation week and is hanging in there! Summer is so close!
