Flashback & Five For Friday

To take a quick look at my week I'm linking up with Teaching Maddeness and Doodle Bugs Teaching! Sorry so late...just got back from kickball! It definitely gets your adrenaline pumping!
Just a reminder: Spark Student Motivation Saturday linky party will be held the 2nd and 4th Saturday for June and July. You can post an idea that you're motivated to try next year or a way you plan to motivate your students!
Here are some of the finished gameboards from my grant project. My students designed their gameboard based on their favorite novel from literature circles this year. They completed some of it at school and some at home. We only have two days next week, so I told them they'd have to wait until then to show them off, but they're dying to play and share their games. I'm super impressed with the thought and detail they put into this project!

Young Man and the Sea
Chicken Boy
I got a couple of gifts this week: check out this bag...what a great message right?  She bought it at Books A Million.

I'm cherishing my last few days with my students, so I was upset when one of my students missed school the other day to go to Sea World. However, he did bring this heel back (it's a cell phone holder), so of course he was forgiven! LOL! And, who knew Sea World carried such great souvenirs??!!
My daughter is turning 6 next week and wants to make big birthday plans! Let me start from the beginning...she told me several months ago she knew what she wanted to do for her birthday...she wanted to take her friends to Hawaii! I explained to her that it was quite expensive to go to Hawaii and that we'd have to think smaller for our 6th birthday! So...Lily is having a Little Luau! I'm getting a little nervous because my husband wants my dare devil 9 year old to twirl fire! We used this picture for her invitations.
Hope you had a great week! I'm running so crazy these last couple of weeks I can barely see straight! Every night this week we've had multiple events! I can't wait to slow down a little!

  4. I love your game boards. They look fantastic! My kiddos are just finishing up their games that they created for math. Where do you get the boards for them, yours look similar to the ones I use, but they seem bigger.
    Your daughter looks adorable. Happy birthday to her!

  6. When you host a party, you want to have a good time and participate in enjoyable activities. The events will vary according to the type of party and the age of the participants. To keep your visitors amused, set up Murder Mystery Dinner Party games.
