Five for Friday!

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday!!
1. We are in the middle of our 4 week unit on America. My kids are absolutely LOVING every second of it. We have already learned about the Statue of Liberty, The American Flag, and the Liberty Bell.  In this photo they are seeing how they 'measured up' against the 4.5 feet Statue of Liberty nose! You can check out some of our centers HERE :)
2. I left south Florida last night and headed to Charleston for the weekend! I am loving the cold weather up here!!
3. I am staying with my sister and her husband this weekend and look at the cool gift she had waiting for me!! A new phone case!! <3
4. Today I 'traded' in my kindergarten class for a fifth grade class! I went in to my sisters class (she has a blog too--Little Lovely Leaders). It was so much fun! I was in charge of a small group and we got to play a multiplication game--loved it!
5. A little sneak peak of what I am currently working on!! :)
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!


  1. OMG!! Your new phone cover is ADORABLE!! Have a fun weekend!:)

  8. It's always fun to see what goes on beyond your own classroom door! :o)

    Did your sister have that adorable phone case specially made for you? Very cute and thoughtful!

  9. I love your blog. I have never done the Five for Friday. It would mean remembering to take pictures all week. Or doing something fun on the weekend. I need to get a life!! I am stuck with report cards...Love your phone case. Thank you for the good ideas!

  10. My sister is a teacher too! Hers are much bigger than mine (8th grade-yikes!). Love the phone case!

  14. I can't wait to see your Weather Unit. I am waiting on pins and needles....We are doing our unit on weather next week. :)

  15. Hi Caitlyn!
    I love your phone case too! I was wondering if you might put up the nose activity separately? We do daily 5 so we don't do lots of center activities, but I would love to do that nose activity during math!
