Five for Friday

After much lurking, I've finally decided to participate in my first Five for Friday! Join the fun over at Doodle Bugs. 

We learned about subjects and predicates this week in second grade. Each student and myself wrote one sentence on a large sentence strip then we cut them separating the subject and predicate. Later in the week during work stations, students created new sentences from the mixed up pieces. One group just happened to create this sentence at the same time I was wearing my cupcake slippers!

I went to a science " sip and see" after school this week. I scored some science swag I can't wait to use with my minis. 

On Monday one of my students from last year gave me this thoughtful give. She was a struggling mini at the beginning of second grade and made excellent progress! She is continuing to do well in third grade. This sweet gesture touched my heart. 

During math stations students played Place Value War. You can grab a copy for yourself here. 

Mrs. Bell is our key communicator this year. She's been working hard and does a fantastic job. We appreciate you Mrs. Bell!


  1. What a lovely gift you recieved! It was so cute!

    Definitely going to have to start taking my slippers to work next year with my first job! Seems like a nice way to relax at dinner and give my feet a break from all the heels and smart shoes

    Best wishes,

    1. I think I got my cupcake slippers as a gift my first year of teaching, and they've certainly been soothing to tired feet many times!
