Five For Friday {3.28.14}

Happy Friday!  Here's a peek into our week:

It's SPRING BREAK for us!!!  We are thrilled!  We thought we'd celebrate with a TpT sale!

Our kiddos enjoyed our Economics unit this week.   

First we set up a "factory" to make cookies.  One of the factories used "division of labor" and the other factory did not.  This helped us show "quality vs. quantity."

They LOVED the classroom store!  Students took turns buying and selling.   This way a great way to end the week before break!

Both of these activities can be found in our Economics packet.

We love to see our kiddos excited about reading!  They are still using the genre cart that we blogged about a couple weeks ago. They are excited to read all the different genres and have special books to put in their book boxes!

More dialogue practice this week…
We love the use of the word "exclaimed!"  Cute.

Join us for another Blog Hop!  This time it's all about games, click here to find our post! 

Happy Weekend! 


  1. We do a personal finance unit at the end of the year. I'll keep your economica packet in mind. Have a relaxing spring break!

  2. Love the cookie making idea! What a great way to make economics real!

    I missed reading your genre cart idea the other day, but I am heading over to check it out now. I want to encourage my kiddos to read a variety of genres.

    Have a great weekend!
