Reference Sources and More Snow {Five for Friday}

It's time for Five for Friday!! I did go to school a few more days than last week, so I can actually link up this week and share a few things! 

It snowed and once again wreaked havoc on our schedule. We had two 2 hour delays, an early dismissal, 2 snow days, and a 12-4 delayed schedule today. Reading back over that it doesn't even seem like it's possible to fit all that in one week! 

Our super photogenic Aussie out having some fun in the snow. He always enjoy my picture taking adventures! 

We are still working on reference sources, so we broke out the Thesaurus and worked on finding some synonyms for commonly overused words. You can find the snowflake sheet by Michaela Almeida here on TPT for free! 

We also tried out the Dictionary Roll-A-Word by Common Core and So Much More. Again, another fantastic freebie! This one was a big hit with my kids! 

I used the snow day time to do a little decorating for Valentine's Day. I've also been working on some cards for all my Valentines, but I'll have to wait until Monday Made It to post pics of those...I don't wanna give away the surprise! 

This mess was my desk today around 2:30. I can't handle a messy desk, so needless to say I was at school until it was all cleaned up! With all the snow days and delays I've been sending home more practice for my kiddos to do and that means more grading for me. 

Do you have any time saving tricks for delays and snow days? It seems like there are not enough hours in the few days we are at school each week! 


  1. Wow! That is a crazy schedule! I am impressed you got as much as you did done!

  2. That's the problem I have too. I've been copying and pasting the same plans cause of snow days. I'm behind of my units.

  3. Your doggie is gorgeous!! Hoping you can get back to a regular schedule again. : )
