Five for Friday! First of 2015

First post of 2015 here! Happily linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching 

The first week back from break kicked off with a bang! My precious firsties came back refreshed and ready to rock and roll! Our theme for the month of January is Arctic/ Antarctic Animals. We had lots of great penguin activities and they are loving it! Our Scholastic Spin perfectly paired ( LOVE when that happens!) After reading the text, they students wrote four sentences and drew pictures to go with it of information they gained through reading. They had to highlight and show me the information from the text as well. 

 Thursday morning we woke up to a happy phone call at 6:04am saying it was a "Cold" Day. The temperature was -4 with a feels like temp of -25. Thankfully hubs was off too, and the four of us enjoyed our nice FREEZING cold day off. I got loads of things prepped, printed, and ready for the next few weeks. Good news is we had a snow day today too!!! 4 day weekends ROCK! 

  As with the majority of the world, January means healthy diets and new starts. After loads of unhealthy food over holiday break, I am loving my fresh meals, extra H2O and exercise time. Sadly, exercise in winter in Michigan isn't quite the same....but I'm working out anyways! 

 Thanks to an unexpected 4 day weekend, I have centers printed, laminated, and ready for the next few weeks! And, I still have the weekend to relax! Though honestly, I still probably won't!

 Began to rematch this series over break and quickly binged my way through all 4 seasons on Netflix.... just the other day they added Season 5! So thrilled!  


  1. Those penguin centers look adorable and so does your fur baby!

    1. Thank you! Your pup is super cute too! I love teacher fur babies

  2. We had some cold weather here in Connecticut, but NOTHING like yours. You were busy with your center prep! I keep thinking that having a laminator and color printer at home would be awfully nice. Your puppy is the cutest. Have a great weekend.
    Laughter and Consistency
