Five for Friday

This has been a week. I can definitely tell that Thanksgiving Break is right around the corner. On top of all of that, I've been battling a cold in up and down weather.

It's been a while since I've done a link up so here goes...

Last Saturday, I went to a local women's expo with my mom. It was a lot of fun, complete with free massage and lots of goodies. It was nice to spend a girls day out together.

Sunday night was spent writing for a Noir themed event. I even dressed the part. I've had so much fun participating in NaNoWriMo this year!
I got some fun new things in the mail through an online exchange. :)
We made some super cute turkeys today in math to wrap up our Fact Family week. I used this Turkey Craftivity as inspiration but altered it slightly to better fit my classroom. I love the way they connected Part-Part-Whole and Fact Families. This really worked well with my kids. I completely forgot o take pictures today (see #5) but I will snap some on Monday to share with you!
My boyfriend has unfortunately had to hear my complaints all week. I didn't even realize how many little problems there had been in this week until today when he sent me flowers to brighten my dark week. It nearly made me cry. Amazing how he does a great job as my boyfriend even from across the country!
How's your week been? Link up with Doodle Bugs and share all your fun!


  1. Thanks for sharing the link to the turkey lil ones will love doing it to review fact families. The women's expo sounds dreamy! I could use a massage and a lil pampering after all my conferences are over on Wed.

  2. I know what you mean about having a cold - it's so hard to teach when you're in perfect health - let alone feeling under the weather. Hope you're feeling better, especially since it's the weekend.
