May Second Five for Friday

Hello Five for Friday fans ~ I'm back!  It's been a few weeks since I last joined the linky fun, and I'm glad to be back with Doodle Bugs for this fun linky party.  :-)

This week just flew by!  We worked so hard and had so much fun.  I'm starting to get a little sad that the school year is coming to an end ~ only 24 more days left!  My little cuties have come so far since the beginning of the year, and have made such an imprint on my heart.  It is going to be hard to let them go.  But, I am overjoyed at the progress they have made!  Here is a peek at the fun we had this week.
 
 
 
Baking with the principal.  This week our feature story was Bread Comes to Life ~ a book about how to make bread.  I was reading this book to my kids when my principal came in with the dreaded iPad.  She stayed (and evaluated me) while we had fun with this book.  Happily, I was given a good review.  She also evaluated one of my teaching partners while she read this book to her kiddos.  I guess hearing this book two times provided inspiration to her inner baker.  She asked us if we would like her to pay a visit to talk about baking bread with a bread machine.  She is a very good baker, so of course we jumped at the chance to have her give a guest lesson!  Here are some pictures of our baking fun.  Our classroom smelled so good all day as the bread machine worked its magic! 
 


 
Penny Necklaces.  We worked with money all week long.  To celebrate the fact that they can identify coins, we made these cute star necklaces adorned with a real penny.  It was so cute how excited the kids were to get a real penny! 




Writing!  I am blown away by the writing that my little cuties are doing!  I have never had such wonderful writing ~ and such excited writers as I have this year.  I want to do the Happy Dance every day when I see how excited my kiddos are to write & read the wonderful pieces they write!

  1. I bet your classroom smelled AMAZING after bread making. I am a sucker for carbohydrates! I want a bread maker just for the smell, but my boyfriend says they are a thing of wedding registries past. Sad. Love your adorable blog!
