Five for Friday

Summer is such a different beat than the school year.  I'm sure once I get into a routine then it will be fine, but this week has been a ton of catch up from May's stressville.

I wanted to link up my 5 for Friday with Doodlebugs Teaching. :)

This week I did a ton of this...

and a lot of that....

... and saw a lot of this (Week 4 of potty training little bits)

We even tackled a visit to the ER for my husband...

 and the boys had their dentist appt.

I also made up this when I should have been cleaning: 

Day 5 of Summer Break and I pulled open my math teacher edition.  I have spent the majority of the last couple of days doing non stop laundry and cleaning, getting ready for our trip.  So I opened up my book and ran across Comparing numbers.  Usually I do a bunch of activities for comparing numbers on our whiteboards.  
I just didn't have any task cards yet... so I made up some... the point being that students will have to look closely to see the difference between them.  Not difference meaning subtraction, but to identify greater than & less than.  
Usually my class plays Scoot with task cards, and then I put them into a center rotation or use them for intervention.  I wanted to be able to have 3 different activities my students could complete in a center - using symbols, trophies, and a game board.  

 Of course an Answer Key (and this time also a blank answer document) is included as well.  

Hope you had a great day!  


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I also need to make some dentist appointments!

  2. I know what you mean! I would rather make things on my computer than clean my house!

  3. Wow, you've been busy! Don't you love summer time?

  5. You are a lady after my own heart. Why clean when there are teacher things to do (even when school is out)?
    I hope your husband has recovered.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Your summer has been super eventful! Your place value center looks awesome - yet another thing to add to my wishlist. I think I sell my own things on TpT just to support my habit! LOL!

  7. It has been a busy week for you! Hope your husband is okay after the ER visit. The math packet looks like fun!

  8. I'm with everyone else! Teacher things always win over cleaning. Actually almost everything wins over cleaning!!! I enjoyed reading your post. I hope all is well with your husband!

  9. Hubby is slowly feeling better. His back is still sore but hoping he will take it easy on the trip. :)
