Five for Friday!

I could not be happier that this week is FINALLY over!  I think there are certain weeks that we should be paid more and this is one of them!   I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share some randomness from the past week.

To kick off our measurement unit we made a cute bulletin board display!  The grade twos theme is "Measurement In the Land of Oz" so we made measurement rainbows.  I gave the kids certain lengths they needed to measure each paper strip and then we glued them to the bottom of our rainbows.  The grade ones did a similar activity by they only need to cover nonstandard units of measurement so they measured in beans!

 This is a picture of our Halloween door.  In keeping with our spider them we called it "Welcome To Our Web."  Seriously glitter makes everything look better!  I have my finger over the name in the circle.  It had the student's name in it and was supposed to be a spiderling!

Today I put up our November door - simple but fallish! (I don't think that's a word!)

This was just so cool that I had to share it!  This is a picture of my daughter's science project - a plant cell! Who knew Fimo, jello, craft foam, and beads could look so interesting together:)

I love my daughter more than anything so I had to share her excitement with you!  She is getting her braces off next Thursday!  She is beyond excited!  I will share the "after" shot with you next week:)

We started our Halloween writing a tad bit late but my kids are loving it none the less!  I totally forgot to take pictures of the kids writing in all the Halloween mayhem but here's a picture of the preview so you get a look:)

Thanks for stopping by!
