It's Time for 5 for Friday!!


It's finally Friday!  And what a busy week it has been!  Be sure to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and join in the fun.  :)

1.  Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse:  My husband and I went out to eat here on Sunday after church.  He of course ordered the steak and I got the steak nachos.  YUMMY!  These are so good and not too big of a meal.   



2.  Letter, Word & Sentence Sorting:  We are currently in our second week of summer school.  One of my little guys worked on this sorting activity this week and finally understands the difference between the 3 pieces.  We would count letters in the words and count the words in the sentences to extend the lesson a bit. 




3.  Coffee!:  It is technically summer vacation, so I am staying up later and later.  But I am teaching summer school, so I am still having to get up early.  It is getting harder each morning to get up!  This is the flavor that I have been using this week in my Keurig Coffee Maker.  I make a cup to drink at home and then one to take with me to school.

4.  Guilty Pleasure:  The Bachelorette...No front runners yet that I like.  A lot of guys on there this time that I don't really like.  I'm a little embarrassed to even say I watch this show.  :)


5.  Field Trip Time!!:  Each week we get to take a field trip for our summer school group.  This week we went to CiCi's Pizza.  The kids took a tour of the kitchen and refrigerated section, made pizzas, and of course consumed mass quantities of food!!!  Who knew second and third grade kids could each eat 16 slices of pizza, 8 slices of cheesy sticks, 6 cinnamon rolls and endless refills of soda??  Okay, maybe they didn't eat quite that much, but it couldn't be that far off.  Kids on field trips to a buffet can eat I tell you!

  2. You can take field trips in your summer school?! That is something I want our program to do! How do you manage it? Does the district pay for the busing/trip or do the parents pay?

  4. I just started watching The Bachelorette again this year! I watched it all throughout college, but stopped. So glad I started watching again this season! It is so crazy.

    Oh, and that coffee looks AMAZING!

  7. I watched the Bachelorette last week and took all kinds of flack for it from my hubby and two teenage boys! I've never seen that coffee before - YUM!

  8. I don't watch the bachelorette, but I have a horrible addiction to Real Housewives of New Jersey! Everyone has to have a guilty pleasure :)

  9. Don't worry-I too share your same guilty pleasure! It gives me a reason to like Mondays a little bit more (although in the summer I don't mind Mondays at all!) No front runners for me yet either-hopefully they will come soon!

    I love that your kiddos get to go to Cici's for a field trip! What an awesome and memorable experience for them!

    Good luck with summer school-it looks like your kiddos are learning lots!

  10. Those nachos look scrumptious! I remember teaching Kinders (for 6 years) so that is a MAJOR accomplishment for some! :)

  13. With 2 teenagers in the house, I don't need tv for drama! Ha ha.(wouldn't trade them for all the glam on bachelorette!) I just placed the sort activity on my wish list at tpt! I'm going to have to get it before school starts. It looks so fun.

  15. Hi Lori! Thanks for your comment on my blog - I hope the two freebies get you results as amusing as mine did. Apparently I say "When you make bad choices, bad things might happen" quite a lot in my class because 6 of the kiddos wrote that as advice to the Wolf! Oh well! :-)

  17. Ok--I am totally sucked into your post because of all the food! So many great food pictures and I am now hungry (even though it is only 9 in the morning!) Oh and coffee! The best part of my morning :)

  20. Emily, the steak and the steak nachos were really good! :)

  21. Maria, the school district pays for the buses and the parents pay for the weekly field trips. We try to pick things that are not too expensive. Lots of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is funny, Christina, that you like all the high school drama kind of shows! They can be fun to watch. We just don't want to go through any of that drama ourselves! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Jessica, The Bachelorette is crazy! I cannot imagine putting myself in that kind of situation. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Shawna, I like touring the pizza places AND eating at the pizza places! Fun and good food!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Corinna, the field trips are great! Makes the weeks go by faster too. :) And I agree, nachos are so good!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Susanna, that is so funny that you say that about your husband and 2 boys give you grief over the Bachelorette. My hubby and 2 boys (especially my boys) give me major grief for watching "trashy tv". They just don't understand how fun it is.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is right, Annie! Everyone needs to have at least one guilty pleasure tv show. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Amanda, the kids LOVE going to CiCi's for their field trip. They love to make the pizzas and then of course eat all they can hold!

  29. Shannon, those nachos WERE scrumptious! It's a good place to eat. :)

  30. Thank you, AMonroe! The kids like that sort too and some really need it to understand that concept.

  31. I like that we have the Bachelorette in common, Tammy! So fun and so silly at the same time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks so much, Sara! I hope that you like the sort and that it helps your students this next year. :)

  33. Vicky, the nachos were so good! Congrats on starting your summer vacation. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Susanna, isn't it funny when our students copy the things we say in class? We know they are listening. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Joanne, hopefully as time goes on, the some of the guys on the Bachelorette will start to stand out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Em, food pictures have the same effect on me- they make me hungry! I love my morning coffee too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Shelley, between the food, coffee, and Bachelorette we MUST be kindred spirits! :)

  38. Sandi, only 2 weeks of teaching summer school? That sounds great! Enjoy after your two weeks are done!
