Five for Friday AND an amazing nomination!




This week had its ups and downs. For the most part, it was a great week. The kiddos soaked up all my lessons. Gotta love that! 

I've linked up with Doodbugs for Five for Friday.

 Here are my 5 random things for the week.


 I lost two students this week. My heart hurts. My students become apart of me. I miss them so much when they leave. Our class is saddened by their absence. To help have closure I had my kiddos make each student something they could remember us by.


 Science this week was a hit. It was all about volume. The kiddos couldn't get enough of figuring out an object's volume. Love it!


 I saw this project on Pinterest and I had to try it. I love how it turned out! 


 We also had a lot of fun with fractions! This was a Valentine's Day Fraction Task Card activity. The kiddos wanted to do more. As if 20 task cards weren't enough?! I love that ask for more math! You can find this activity for free {here}.

I'm truly honored to be nominated for the Liebster Award. It made my whole week! The Liebster award is handed out to newer blogs. Liebster is a German word that means: BELOVED, CUTE, LOVELY, DEAREST, & WELCOME!

I was nominated by Sarah. She is from the blog, Chicken Soup for the Autism Teacher's Soul. She nominated me for my post about kindness. You can read it {here}.

 I'm going to officially accept the nominations in a future post this week. I also get to nominate 5 blogs that I think deserve the award. Stay tuned!

  7. I am always sad when student leave too, especially in the middle of the year. By this point you have really formed a bond and sometimes it sad to see them go. I bet they loved the goodbye gift from their classmates.
