Whoooo Hooooo! It's Friday!

Yipeeeeeeeeee! It's Friday!!!! AND a three day weekend!!!!!

Here's what my week looked like!

We {FINALLY} finished our state testing this week! SIX days of testingtestingtesting! SO glad this is OVER!!!

All I can say, is thank goodness for brain breaks!!! Kristin shared a great website with some super fun brain breaks. You can check them out {HERE}! Our favorite is #5!!!

And we've also been able to fit in some measurement fun! Michelle at Teach123 has some great measurement packs that saved my life this week! :) The kids LOVED them!

As if my kids haven't been tested enough, I thought I'd kick 'em while they're down and just keep on testing! I'm determined to get our end of the year assessments done ahead of time!!! And they've been troopers! 

To end the week, I found this adorable pin and thought it would be fun (and HERS turned out so cute!)!!!

 Although they didn't turn out exactly how I had hoped (and there was paint. Everywhere...)

Some of us nailed it-

And some of us NAILED IT! ;-) 

Make sure to link up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday! :)

And have a great weekend!!!!

  1. Oh my goodness! Brain breaks have saved my bacon this last week. I also found some good songs on YouTube. People have uploaded themselves doing Just Dance and my students like to dance with them.

  4. Hi Sandy! Thank you so much for sharing my brain break posts. The 'not having it' girl in the picture cracked me up! I currently have one 'not having it' girl and one boy who is 'too cool for school' (unless it's the Star Wars video). :-) So happy this brought me to your site! You share lots of good resources and I'm going to add you to my 'Links I Love' page.
