Five for Friday~ October 24

I am linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for another Five for Friday!
I am not going to hide the elephant in the room.  

This has been a hard week.  
It always is.

If you've lost someone, their birthday and their death date are always hard. 

I lost my mom. 
 I didn't want to be in this club, but I am.

Monday was my mom's birthday. 
Tuesday was her death date.  Sucks, right?

Although social media saturates our society, it was nice to know that "they" were thinking about my mom on Monday. Even if "they" really isn't anyone but me.  
It some how made her feel close to me.

So yeah, that's my #1.

Since I wasn't up for much this week, I thought I would put together a blog post about resources that I am currently in LOVE with.  Check out my post about Alphabet Puzzles.

This week my kinders completed a non-fiction 
Pumpkin unit.  
It was a great week, teaching wise. Here is one of my favorite anchor charts for the week. 
I totally made this at 5:00am on Tuesday.  I think I did a pretty good job. :)

In math, we used our estimating skills to measure around our class pumpkin~ Petey. 
Yep, named him. 
I kind of have a problem naming things in my room.  
(I should probably do a post about that.)
 Here are some of our mental images after our week.  
" I c a pumpkin."

  Until Next Time...  tell someone you love them today.
