Five for Friday 1.31.14

Happy Friday to all of you!

A peek at our week:

It was a CRAZY week for us…that's for sure!  FOUR snow days!  For NC that's a lot of snow days in a row!  We only got  about 2-3 inches of snow but it definitely shut everything down!  Time at home in the snow was a treat. 

The snow days gave us time to finish up a couple of TpT projects!  We now have St. Patrick's Day Math Bags for sale for:


If you're in the need for math centers for March, you'll have to check them out! 

It's almost February!!! This weekend (today through Sunday) all of our Valentine's Day products in our TpT store will be on sale (40% off)!   Our packet, "Special Delivery" contains many activities for your kiddos to use leading up to, or on Valentine's Day!  Our students loved it last year and we are looking forward to using it again! 

Also, our Valentine's Day Math Bags will be on sale; we have 
Kindergaten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade available! 
Speaking of Valentine's Day…here's a fun idea for your students' cards….

A clear bag with a packet of hot cocoa, a fun straw, and heart shaped marshmallows (I found these at Walmart after going to every.single. grocery store in my area.  They are "Campfire" brand.):

With a ribbon and tag attached:

If you'd like a copy of this tag so you can make these for your students, click here.  

Our kiddos were super excited to get pen pal letters from our friends in Amanda and Aylin's classrooms!  How fun to read letters from other first graders so far away!

My sweet TA surprised me by having the kiddos decorate "Onsies" to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our 2nd child.  How cute are these?!?  

Have a great weekend!!!

P.S.  Join us over at our Teacher's Notebook store for the Super Bowl Sale on Saturday and Sunday!  The whole site will be 10% off, plus we will be offering an additional discount!   


  1. 4 snow days this week?? I was so thrilled with our 2 cold days, but 4 would've been even more amazing! :) Love those little Valentine gifts you created- adorable! Those pics of your kiddos reading our letters are so fun!
