Five For Friday!!!! #bringonvacation


I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday!

Divider 1

Fairytalessssssssssss!!!!!  We are in our final stages of this amazing unit.  We are writing our VERY OWN fairytales!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So engaging and so fun!  I love reading the versions of my students' fairytales and the different ways they are incorporating the elements of fairytales.       

 The little guy on the left is editing… using a dictionary!  Ummm… my students are SO fascinated with the dictionary it really cracks me up!  The little guy on the right is planning his fairytale.  #getcreative

So… to add a little more motivation and enjoyment to this unit… we listen to DISNEY fairytale music on youtube!!!!!  I call it brain music and it helps them concentrate!  Seriously, does it get any better?????!!!!!

Did you know you can USE flair pens on the paper with no bleeding through?!?!?!  #dreamcometrue

 Buutttt… I did book a much needed SPA day!


I will be kicking off my vacation with MARATHON MONDAY!  

Thanks for reading my random Five for Friday!


  1. Ahhh you got The Creative Chalkboard paper collection! The collection look awesome!

    I love your blog, so I have nominated you for the Liebster Award!

    Neat Sweet & Hard to Beat

  2. Hi, Amy!
    I feel like I'm stalking you looking for those fraction sheets you showed on ig. But I'm glad I am! I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your kiddos. It's cool to see what other 2nd graders are doing on the other side of the country. On another topic, when I visited Boston a few years ago, I went to a couple of Red Sox games. So much fun! You guys truly love your baseball!

    Made with Love

    1. Hi Stacy!

      No you're not stalking … I think your blog is sooooo cute…so I have stalked as well!!!!!

      Here is the link to those sheets...

      OMG! We love ALL sports here! The games are soooo much fun! I am happy you were able to experience Fenway Park!

      I feel like the Common Core standard for fractions is so minimal compared to what they need to be doing by 4th grade!?!

      I hope you enjoy the sheets!
