Five For Friday

Good morning! I am so excited to bring you my first Five For Friday on this beautiful first day in May.

On Monday my little firsties got to watch our local fire department help our eighth graders with a science experiment. They did an egg drop from the top of the ladder. Although they enjoyed watching all the eggs drop in their different containers, it was the ladder that was the highlight of the experience. Over half my class wrote about the ladder in their journal assignment.

Our school has a flag raising on the last Wednesday of every month. Each class takes a turn leading. This past Wednesday was our turn. My kids did such an awesome job leading pledges, reading verses, and saying the prayer. They looked and sounded so grown up. I couldn't help but flash back to how little they were at the beginning of the school year.

We began working on our Mother's Day writing. My awesome teaching partner had cute mom/superhero writing idea. They had to think of something their mom was good at and turn it into a super power that will help people. It was sweet and pretty funny to read about all the different super powers. We had everything from super hugs to super bakers to the super cleaner.It will be fun to see how it all comes together in the final product next week.

I get to plan the weekend adventures with my little family. My husband is done with his masters so this will be the first weekend in a year that we will have the entire weekend to be together with our sweet baby girl and crazy dog. I am so excited!!

This week we used the song Big House by Audio Adrenaline with one of our Bible lessons and I thought I would share it.



  1. I love that mothers day writing idea. Super Hugs- too cute! The creative minds these kiddos have will never cease to amaze and entertain me. :)

  2. Also, this only my second Five For Friday, so we can be newbies together! Welcome to the party!

  3. Hi, Ashley!
    I love the superhero mom idea. That must have been so fun!
