Five For Friday: Fingers and Toes Day!

It's been a while since I've shared my week, so here I am! :o)
Fingers and Toes Day was today!! For those of you that have no clue what that means, we can officially count down to the last day of school on our fingers and toes! :o)

Wednesday was Earth Day, and my kids had a BLAST creating a new invention to help the Earth thanks to Matt at Digital Divide and Conquer's awesome PBL Activity!!

First, my student teacher worked with them to brainstorm areas of need...

Then they got busy! What I love most about these types of activities is that my usual "top scholars" or "high flyers" aren't always the ones who come up with the most creative ideas... as you'll see below. Excuse the spelling but check out their awesome inventions!!!

We've been enjoying GoNoodle in between all the test review and actual testing!

If you haven't been taking Brain Breaks this year, it's not too late to start!! Sign up- it's free! The kids love it, and it's pretty amusing for the teacher, too. :-P
Last... I have some exciting news- you must come back Sunday to see what it's all about!! But here's a little hint. :o)

I hope your week was awesome! See you soon!

  5. Those look incredible! I'm thrilled your kids enjoyed it and I LOVE the fact that it isn't just for High Flyers. I've got quite the range of kids that have so much untapped potential because they aren't always given ways to show it too. Those drawing are excellent. Tell you students they did an excellent job!

  6. Would you be willing/able to post an editable version of your ABC Countdown? Your calendar looks so much better than the ones I've made. We actually start May 1st and end in June. Thanks,
