Five For Friday: Other People Are Creative and Talented Edition

Happy Saturday friends!

SO yesterday we had ANOTHER snow day and it was number 13...yes 13!! So after having worked only two days this week I thought that I would showcase other peoples hard work for my Five for Friday post.

My blogging buddy Angela over at Hippo Hooray for 2nd Grade has MANY great products. We have been hard at work learning and re-learning regular and irregular plural nouns. My kiddos have really become obsessed with playing Scoot. So I picked up her Plural Nouns Scoot game and we used that for me to assess their learning. ( Coincidentally it was Angela's Estimating Scoot games that got them addicted.) 

We play Scoot 2 different ways in my room. Way #1 is everyone gets a card and we rotate around my tables. Way #2 is I put one card on our lockers out in the hall and we rotate down the line. Either way it gets them up and moving, so important for our littles, its a quick assessment and they think they are playing a game! Win/ Win for all!

Most of you do March is Reading Month activities at your school. We also do Kindergarten Round Up the first week of March and we do the same theme for both. This years theme is Fiesta. So my 2-5 are of different cute-cute bulletin boards around my school. Many of these ideas were inspired by Pinterest I was told. 

This bulletin board is inspired by the book Chicks and Salsa. It is SOOOOO cute! I have never read that book, but just based on this bulletin board I am checking it out!

This frog literally made me laugh out loud when I passed it by the first time. One of the special ed parapros does the academic center bulletin boards and they always turn out spectacularly!

This last one is going to have quotes from the staff about why we love our school for Kindergarten Round Up night. I love the tacos! 

 Finally, this last one doesn't really fit with our Fiesta theme but it is SO cute I had to share. Our office ladies made this board. TOTES ADORBS!

Well that is all for me. I am hoping to actually WORK next week and have more things to share from my room. ( I know, I know, poor me having snow days. But we are now in make up mode, so while those of you who don't have 3 snow days to make up are relaxing in June think of my sweltering in my old un-air conditioned building.) 

Go link up with Doodlebugs Teaching to share your week with us!

Enjoy your weekend friends!


  1. I love the Scoot game too. It's a great way to review anything and the kids love it!

    Hope you have a good weekend!

  2. Awww how did I miss this?! My bunnies LOVE Scoot too! I love how you put them on your lockers! Too bad we just have coat hooks, but that sounds like such a fun way to do this activity!
