Gone too long... Back for Five for Friday!

It's been quite a whirlwind around here with both my school life and personal life but things seem to be getting back on track so I figured, why not link up to share some of the great things happening in these last few weeks of 5th grade!

So I'm linking up once again with the wonderful Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky party!

We finished our College and Career Unit this week! Students had to research a career of their choice and report on the skills, experience, and education needed to be successful in that career. Thanks to Nicole Shelby and her fabulous College and Career Research Project - my teaching job was a breeze! We watched some videos on United Streaming and then had the iPads for several days to do our research. We ended the unit this week with some musical chair reviews!


I love my new Staples M discbound notebook for grades and data! 

Tomorrow I'm running in the Color Me Rad 5K... Well, walking in the race with family. I'm excited because I've never done a "color run" before! Plus, the shirt is cute... Too bad I can't wear the adorable sunglasses because they aren't prescription!

Have you heard of Our World Boutique? If not, you need to check them out. They have great sales on super cute jewelry especially statement necklaces. Five new necklaces for only $21 dollars and free shipping! Love all my new accessories!

We're getting ready for our "Lemonade Day" in the coming weeks. I love ending the year with Economics! Today, read The Lemonade War and we went over different advertising techniques that companies use to hook us into their products. Then students had to decide the best strategy for marketing their drinks! I'll be blogging more about this book this Wednesday for Workshop Wednesday!

What's one of your favorite unit(s) to end the year with?
Happy Friday,
