Peek at My Week and Winners

My spring break is over...{insert crying face}, so I'm linking up with my buddy Jennifer for her fun linky, Peek at My Week to share what will be happening in our classroom!
We have our 10 countdown days until testing when we come back! Stress is on! We're going to be doing a lot of review and revisiting topics my students struggled with this year.
One fun game we will be playing is Area & Perimeter Scoot-my students are addicted to Scoot, and lucky for me, because they don't realize they're still working while they complete these task cards! It's more fun when they get up and move around! As a teacher, I love this concept because EVERYONE is engaged! I have a couple of students who aren't big fans of math and even they LOVE Scoot! If it's a newer concept or a difficult one, I allow them to work in partners.

I will also be using my friend Jivey's Diving for Decimals-I want to make these next two weeks fun, but with an academic focus! There's a couple of games that will fit perfectly with my review!
 
And, you know how this time of year goes...after spring break they can get a little crazy! We will have to review our classroom procedures before we start anything! If you don't have a copy of these, grab them free here.
 
My second son will be turning 10 this week! Double digits! He's grown up so fast, how does this happen? You're changing diapers one minute, then sending them off to college the next!
 
I'm very excited to wear my newest addition to my shoe family this week: 
Aren't they adorable??!! Shut up, right?? :)
 
The winners of my Pin It To Win It contest for my Testing Goodies Pack are:
Congratulations to Angela and Hope! Check your inbox, there will be a goodie waiting for you!
Thank you all for pinning. They'll be on sale until tomorrow evening if you want to grab them and get your students excited about testing!

  1. Oh my gosh...those shoes are CRAZY (and adorable)!! I would kill myself if I tried to walk in them! (I'm 5'10" and VERY uncoordinated.) Do you really wear those to school??? I find that as the years go on, my shoes get flatter and flatter. :) Happy birthday to your middle baby!!!

    Thanks for linking up, Joanne! Have a fantastic week!

  2. Sounds like a great way to do Test Prep! FUN, FUN, FUN! I understand how you feel. My spring break is in one week, and then it is two weeks of ALL Test Prep! I plan to use some great games to take the edge off of my kiddos.

    P.S. LOVE the shoes! ;o)
