Five for Friday and Currently!

Hi everyone, I've been wanting to link up with Doodle Bugs for the past few weeks and just couldn't seem to get it together (story of my life lately!)  So I finally have found the time to link up!  Yay!
fiveforfriday
1.  I can't believe it's time for Farley's Currently linky again!  I feel like I just linked up for April's Currently (and I haven't posted since then...so sad).  If you've never linked up, you have to check it out. 


2.  So, we've recently worked on 3.NF.2  and have been learning how to plot and identify fractions on a number line. We started by watching this video from Learn Zillion (my go to website...LOVE it): Learn Zillion. We did several days of drawing fraction models above our number line as the video shows. So then we wrote our names and related our names to a number line. The whole name represented the whole and each letter represented part of the whole. The kids seemed to really enjoy this simple activity and it helped solidify their understanding of the number line!

3.  In Science, we've been learning about the Skeletal System and my kiddos have been super excited about this unit!  I gave them this project menu (that you can get from my TPT store for free by clicking on the picture).  This has been highly motivating because first of all they get to choose which projects to complete and also because some of the activities are just plain fun!  The projects aren't due for another week so I hope to get some pics up then!
4.  Not too long ago, my team gave the third graders a practice EOG test (or READY now) because our kiddos have never taken such a lengthy paper/pencil test.  (They test each quarter on the computer through ClassScape assessments but their end of year test is paper/pencil and they have to bubble it all....)   Anywho, one standard that my students are still need practice with is RL.3.9 so I whipped up this little graphic organizer to help them compare and contrast two stories.  You can grab it for free at my TPT store (just click on the pic!)

5.  Finally, I just have to praise the Lord for how he's working in my son's life!  Last night he was acting up alot (nothing major, just typical little boy stuff) and I was talking to my hubby later about whether he seems to really understand repentance or not because usually we have to tell him to ask for forgiveness in his prayers.  Well, we pray every morning together at his school and this morning his prayer was simple but perfect.  He said, "Dear God, please forgive me of my sins.  Thank you for giving me a fresh start today!"  Remember y'all that you are forgiven!  Enjoy your weekend friends!

  1. My husband cannot wrap his head around me driving in the car without the radio on. Sometimes (a lot of times) I just need the sound of silence. It really is Golden!
    Your boys are super cute! Enjoy your free time with them this summer. My favorite thing to do during the summer is to hang out with the nieces and nephews at Grandma's pool.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Andi, my husband blares music always too. I don't think he gets peace from silence like I do...although, he isn't with 25 kids all day either, lol.

      Thanks for the comment about the boys. Enjoy your time at the pool and with your family! =O)

  2. What a sweet moment for you as a mama! I love that you start your day in prayer together. :)

    Also, when the laundry fairy is finished at your house, could you send her to mine?!

    1. Thanks Abby, the prayer really has helped me feel ready to face the day and I want to model that for my son too.

      I never found a laundry fairy...just two messy boys who add more to the pile, lol!

  3. Oh my gosh! Those are two of the cutest little boys ever! I have two grown boys and miss those precious days with little ones afoot. I taught 3rd grade for 6 years and loved it. Nice to find you!

  6. Found you from Farley's May CURRENTLY!! I'm so WITH you in needing to get back on track in my fitness routine - since as of right now it's non-existent. Would so love to get to the beach this summer too, any good tips on Myrtle Beach since it's out there on your side of the country?

    1. Hi Antonia, I am slooooooowly improving on my exercise routine. Have you made any progress?

      As far as Myrtle Beach, there is lots of fun to be had! We always try to stay away from the "Grand Strand" which is the middle of Myrtle Beach...way too much traffic for my liking so we usually stay in either North or South Myrtle Beach. I love shopping at Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot's Landing. Also, my family always enjoys going to places like Alabama Theater or Medieval Times. Oh, there is a teacher store there too called Teacher's Touch. It's not a huge store but I always stop there when I'm in town because they seem to have soem different products than my local teacher store.
