Five for Friday: 2/6/15

Hi Friends!  Just a quick blog post for my favorite linky with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

I just finished my Presidents' Day flip book!  I am super excited about this little guy.  Plus I included some extra printables in the set too.  Check it out HERE if you are in need of something Presidents' Day themed.

PAWS Sheets.  Have you ever used these in your class?  I'm not sure where I came across this idea but it's a good one! Sometimes a student is off task and you just need them to pause and think about what they are doing.  "PAWS"  sheets do just that.  I would use them when I pulled small groups and other students were suppose to be working independently.  If a student was way off task or just needed a break I would simply say "John PAWS."   The student knew this meant he had to stop what he was doing, grab a "PAWS" sheet and begin completing it.  I also had an assigned spot near to me where they had to sit to do this.  Then when I got my small group working or had a moment I would talk with the student about why they had to pause.  This little strategy helped because who wants to sit near the teacher doing independent work when they could be completing a fun center?  If you want to try this idea click the download above to grab it FREE.

Yum!  Tried out my pizza stone for the first time this week.  I like a crispy crust and although it wasn't perfect it was way better than ever before.  Any tips on how to get that perfect crispy crust?

The hubs and I found out our gender scan is scheduled for the 22nd!  Eeeek!  We are so excited.  He says boy and I really just don't know.  It really doesn't matter either way, but I am eager to find out so I can start shopping. Ha-Ha

Just look at those two perfectly partner reading.  Love it!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Love the President's day flip book. Looks great! So exciting to find out what you are going to have. Are you going to have a gender reveal party? I wish those would have been around when I had my kids. I think they sound so fun. I like a crispy crust on my pizza too. I have a Pampered Chef pizza stone and it seems to work pretty well. Hope you have a great week!

    Luv My Kinders

    1. Thanks Laura! We are so excited to find out if we're having a boy or girl. I agree the gender parties are super cute but we actually aren't having one. Since we're over seas we're going to FaceTime our families and share the news using a cake but won't be having a big party. It'll still be fun :)
