Five for Friday!

Happy, Happy Friday!
Linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching and Teaching Maddeness to share what went on in my corner of the world this week.



#1. Angela ,from Hippo Hooray for 2nd Grade, and I hosted our very first linky party yesterday!
What's even more exciting is that we were not the ONLY ones to link up! :) If you want to link up this week you  still can. ( Go HERE.) It's up until next Thursday, when we will do it again. :) Angela also came up with a genius idea for a Pinterest board that will have all of these awesome tips on it. You can check that out HERE.


This week we had a fun assembly to celebrate MAP testing being done. It was called the Ned Show. ( Ned stands for: N.ever giving up, E.ncouraging others, and D.oing your best)The guy speaking is named Gary. He did all sorts of neat tricks with a yoyo and some other magic tricks while spreading his message about how to be a champion. It was one of the best assemblies we have ever had. You can check it out at their website HERE.

Changed out my bulletin board for the last time this year. :( I got a sailboat bulletin board set at JoAnn's back in September for like $2! I have been saving it for the end of the year.

 The little sailboat creations on the bottom are by Amy Lemons. You can check them out HERE.

The bottom part is a little booklet. ( There is actually 5 pages but for some reason that picture is turned the wrong way.! Woops!)




Today was Mr. Schroeder Appreciation Day. Mr. Schroeder is my principal. Ever since he became our principal 5 years ago,  we have had a special day at the end of the year where we celebrate him and all he does for us and our school. The kids make him cards, sing songs, write him letters etc. And we also do a potluck lunch. My kiddo's made this cute poster for him.

My favorite one is the top right corner ( of the poster board). One of my kiddos said " I like how you dress up." So cute!


Finally, who doesn't love a picture, letter, or craft from one of your peanuts. The ones that are even more special to me are the ones that they do at home because they had to take their own time to make it.

One of my peanuts brought this to me this morning. Mrs. Robinson is WAY too emotional to not have teared up at this.

Oh honey, *I* WILL miss you. 
14 more days....that's it. And then this years babies move on....Ok, Mrs. Robinson is WAY too emotional to think about it right now...

Enjoy your Friday night friends and have a FABULOUS weekend!


  1. We had the NED assembly a couple of years ago, it was awesome! We also had the MAP tests this year, and it was a real challenge to get those kids through it! Definitely a cause for celebration!

  2. Thank you for creating the Pinterest board. What a fab idea- just started following it! We had the NED show last year too. It's a wonderful way to get kids motivated in a super positive way! Enjoy your last few days with your kiddos.
