Five for Friday!

Hi Sweet Teacher Friends!

Happy Weekend. :)  Today we are linking up with Doodle Bugs for a little Five for Friday linky party.

Post 5 things about our week? This is going to be all sorts of random, but that's how my brain works.  It's perfect.  :)  I can't tell you how many times I tell Emily something and she looks at me like I'm crazy.  You see....I don't actually say half of the things I am thinking.  Or I change the subject mid-sentence.  Or I'll say something like..."You know the thing?  I need that."

My poor boyfriend. But I digress....on to our fun week at school!

We have been studying the Civil War in history.  It's pretty awesome that we learned about the Hunley (a secret submarine mission for the Confederacy) and then we were able to go see it.  It was only found in 1995! It is being restored in Charleston, South Carolina.

Hunley Preservation 

For our persuasive writing unit, we teach how to write a business letter.  The kids can write to request something, complain (in a friendly manner), or express a concern.  This little lovely is writing Taylor Swift.

We had a hilarious coversation about what it means to "never, ever get back together."  No one in the class had a clue.  Aw.  Taylor Swift, write these children back.  They sing your songs, and have no clue about your issues.  ;)

We started a non-fiction unit to celebrate Black History Month.  Our kids are very excited!

We also started a measurement unit in math.  We ended the week by making Metric Monsters.  We adapted the lesson from Mary Carr's store on tpt.  It's a freebie, check it out (here).  Our kids LOVED it.

And finally....Boyfriend Cookies.

I know this isn't school related, but I couldn't resist.  Have yall seen these on pinterest?  Oh my goodness, they are good!  Like...insanely good. Like...I'll do an extra yoga class good.  Do yourself a favor...if you're into elastic waistband pants....find this recipe.  They are ridic!

Thanks for reading.  Enjoy your weekend!
