Five for Friday....

It's time for Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

One.... I finished the task card set I worked on all last week! Wahoo!  It took forever for me to just finish it so that I could put it on TpT.  My students loved it and stayed engaged while collaborating to solve the higher rigor problems.  Hallelujah!

Two.... Today is the football game between the two high schools in my town.  It is a HUGE deal to everyone.....I mean, today the town is DIVIDED!  I grew up in Forney, and was a Forney Varsity Cheerleader.  So tradition says, "Go Rabbits!"  But I teach on the north side of town, so I have taught the majority of the player on the North Forney team.  So it's not just a town divided....I'm divided!!!  
But I'm sitting on the North Forney side tonight, cheering on the Falcons, wearing blue and white, and running through the Falcon tunnel with all of my current and former students..... while my sister, brother-in-law, and niece are sitting on the other side of the stadium wearing black and gold!

Three....  OMG!  I can't believe it's been ten years since I used to wish that I was dating Carmine! Hahaha!  Monday cannot come fast enough!!!!

Four....  My best friend, Lindsey, loves to get craft ideas off of Pinterest.  Then she usually ropes me into doing them with her.  The problem is, they never end up being as easy as they say or look on Pinterest!  Latest project...yarn-wrapped letter.  Word of advice....DON'T DO IT!  After 4 hours, this was the end result.  It's cute, but not perfect.  But, hey, we had fun bestie bonding time!

Five....  This was on my Facebook News Feed, and I'm thinking this is a craft project that I can do!  So, I'm thinking this may be getting done tomorrow!

This has been a great Friday...did I mention that it was a jeans day at school!?!?!  There's nothing better than a Friday with jeans! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I also live in a divided town! It is fierce competition in all respects. Both high schools are older and in need of repair. Recently our school board voted to build TWO NEW high schools rather than one large state-of-the-art great school because we didn't need to mix the two sides of town. Really. Love your craft ideas- even the wrapped letter! Have a great weekend!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  2. Hi Anna! I found you through your sister's blog. Yours is adorable. I taught fifth grade for many years before heading to 2/3 last year. I miss it still sometimes! Pop over and visit any time!
