Show and Tell Tuesday - Nov. 15th

It's time for another Show and Tell Tuesday with Forever in 5th Grade. Haven't said that in a while! The first few months of school have been crazy ones and my blogging got put on the back burner, but I am excited to say I am trying to get on a blogging schedule so I won't be gone so long again.
Our city's Arts Council puts on the Harmony Jubilee every year to raise money for art programs in our schools. The main attraction at this even are hot air balloon rides which made a visit to each school on Friday morning!

High school football is like a religion down here in South Georgia. Our team is ranked number #1 in our region and Friday night started the first round of playoffs! Fingers crossed we make it to the Georgia Dome for the second year in a row!  

How many of you are The Bachelor fans like me? Well get ready for this Lauren B. has started a blog of her own, Sparkle In Her Eye! It's all about beauty, fashion, and her life with Ben Higgins!

I got my very first Lilly Pulitzer planner over the summer and I am not disappointed!! My birthday month has my favorite animals, Elephants!!!

Thanks for joining me for Show and Tell! I can't wait to check back later and read everyone's posts!

Five for Friday - Nov.11th

In my very first post I talked about technology in the classroom and Splash Math was one of my favorite resources! This is a view of the student dashboard! From the teacher dashboard you can create assignments that fit the need of your students and they appear in orange at the top! It also has an option to review skills that students have already mastered. Math facts and games are a some other great features. The best part is that you can try it out for FREE!!!

My kids love it and it works well with whole group, small groups, and even individual instruction!

She even took her hair out of a ponytail to match mine!!
We've been graphing it up down here on 3rd grade hall and my students are loving it! I found some really awesome resources at Teacher's Clubhouse!

Here are some of my student's graphs!!
The weather is starting to get chilly here in  South Georgia, but before it did we took my nephews fishing! 
We had to make a stick into a fishing pole for the little one, but Sophie tried to eat it!
 My fur babies, Sophie and Luna enjoyed themselves as well! This is the before and after picture!

Today is Veterans Day so let's all make sure we take time to thank our veterans for their service to our great country!

Happy Friday!!
