We've Gone to the Dogs!! {Five for Friday}

Ahhh....the Friday before Spring Break AND a half day for the kiddos means a pretty nice day for me!! Time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and show y'all what I've been up to this week! 

Before we get to the dogs let's talk sharks!! I was lucky enough to get a class set of Wonderful World of Sharks published by Disney. I've been hanging on to them for several months just waiting for the time to be right and what better time than the week before break? 

This little mini-unit will definitely carry over into the week we get back, but it'll make a good transition and the kids are really enjoying it. We are brushing up on our nonfiction skills! 

That unit will have to be extended because we had ANOTHER snow day on Wednesday!!! It snowed off and on all day Tuesday, but never really did stick. That changed on Tuesday night and we got a very unexpected, but appreciated, snow day!

This picture was taken at 6:30 in the evening and it was like a total white out outside!! Crazy!! 

We children's author David Sargent, Jr. visit our school yesterday and he brought the stars of his books with him!! He had four doggies with him and he chose teachers from the audience to help hold them. Of course I was all over that! I mean who could resist this cute little guy? 

Trick dog!! The kids went wild over this. 

I made a stop by the library yesterday afternoon to pick up some books for Spring Break reading next week. I read the first book in the Inn BoonsBoro series during the snow day Wednesday, so I thought I'd finish out the trilogy.

  1. You always have the best presenters at your school. Love the dogs. I read that Nora Roberts series. It's cute and a definite easy and enjoyable read. I could use a snow day right about now. I haven't recovered from our week off yet.
