Linky Mashup

Well I was preparing for my first Blog Hoppin' Teacher Week to only find that there wasn't one for this week! :/
So I would like to do a little mashup linky with  with my all time favorite Doodlebug's Teaching Five for Friday

Now that I think about it that would be a great idea for some linky parties to do a mashup every now and then! Let me know what you think or if it's already been done before!


I teach 3rd grade at a small school in South Georgia where we are known for football! Go Canes!! I love all things Harry Potter and Disney!! I visited Universal Studios for the first time last year and fell in love with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I hope to visit Disney World for Spring Break! I am a math and science teacher, but I love to read! I carry a book with me wherever I go! My favorite animals are sea turtles and elephants and you will probably see a lot of blog posts including something about them!My husband and I are huge Georgia Bulldog fans and we make our way to Athens every year to cheer them on! 


One of my favorite lessons was actually a lesson I taught last year! It was during our Pollution/Conservation unit and my students made Recycled Robots! My students really got into this unit and they all wanted to learn ways to protect our plants and animals from pollution. I had students that would go home to do research on their own and come back to school the next day to tell me what they found on pollution. I can't wait to start this unit with this year's class!


I was really excited about how my classroom turned out this year! All the changes I made over the summer really proved to be effective for my classroom management plan! I've never done an overall theme like Under the Sea, Owls, or a Jungle theme. I've always chosen bright colors or patterns that catch my eye!
Did anyone know that you can bring dogs into Hobby Lobby? I may have been the last to know, but as long as they fit in the buggy they can come in with you! Soooo of course I had to bring my puppy shopping with me! How cute is this?! 
I almost forgot to introduce everyone to my new fur baby. If you've read my blog before then you've seen me talk about my Golden Retriever Sophie, but here is the new addition! Meet our Australian Shepherd Luna!


She loves to lay under the coffee table and watch TV!

We are working on our Fraction Unit here in third grade and we are deep in fraction bars and equivalent fractions. We have done some of my favorite Interactive Notebooks so far this year. I grabbed these from Create Teach Share TPT.


Well there you have it! Five things for five days!! I hope you've enjoyed reading my linky mashup!!
