Five For Friday…..Finally On Time!

I did it!  Not only did I survive 25 Parent Teacher conferences in 3 afternoons, but I got my Five For Friday done….on a Friday!  It was a busy week and I am exhausted, but I also was able to leave work at 1:30 today.  Conferences and planning done…..I was out of there!  I love my job and my school but it was nice to be able to grocery shop and pick my high schooler up from school for the first time!
Okay, here we go!

I am ready for fall.  It’s my favorite time of year.  I love fall clothes, fall scents, fall decorations, etc….  The only problem is that fall weather takes forEVER to get here.  I keep thinking that if I break out the scarves and boots fall will come faster.  It isn’t working.

This week in math we worked on rounding to the nearest ten and the nearest hundred.  I was so proud of my kiddos, using their vertical number lines to round.  It makes it so much more visual and helps them understand it conceptually so much more than just teaching the “rounding rules.”

This sight melted my heart and I had to take a quick pic.  He finished his math assignment and wanted a quiet and comfy spot to read.  Love it!

I have jumped on the visual plans bandwagon.  I love that my plans for each week will now be saved on Dropbox and I will have links to everything to remind me. There is also the added bonus of possibly being able to help some one else get their plans done quickly!  And then of course there was the yummy dinner I was prepping along with my plans!

My big accomplishment this week was that I ran.  I ran 3 times!!!!  And, my run last night was my fastest yet.  I still don’t necessarily like running and my knees don’t like it much either, but my work pants fit better.  I also feel better after I do it and it really does help relieve stress. 
Hope you all have a wonderful Friday night and a restful weekend!
