Five For Friday-What We Have Been Up To

Aloha Friday everyone!  Can I just say I am so glad it's Friday.  This week has been emotionally exhausting and I am in need of some relaxation and quiet time.

I am linking up with Kasey today to share some of the things we have been up to in class lately.

I wanted to make these cute flowers for Mother's Day and the vase so we started this week.  Today we got as far as making the stems and rolling the flowers.  We used 3x12 strips to make it easier than the original design on the Blog Post from DIY Heaven. Next week we will do a few more flowers and then glue them to the stems.

We just finished our unit of data and graphing.  I had the students collect their own data and create a picture graph.  They came out really cute!

Our Beach Bucks are in full swing and I often catch early finishers pulling out their money and counting how much they have.

Do you have those Early Finishers that you can never seem to keep up with?  I have a handful that are finished within seconds of me passing out assignments, especially during math.  The solution was to give them a project to keep them busy but having fun, especially now that the end of the year is quickly approaching.  I taught my class how to make paper chains and they are loving it.

The strips of paper are 1x8 inches.  This little gal is trying to see how long she can make this by the end of the year.  So far it's taller than me!

Finally we made these adorable Name-Bows from Reagan Tunstall last 
week to brighten up the classroom.

I hope you had a lovely week and are enjoying spring weather along with the end of the year just around the corner. Head over to Kasey's blog to check out the other Five For Friday posts.


  1. All of your paper crafts are adorable! The paper chains totally brought back fourth grade for me! I may have to teach my third graders how to do this next week.

  2. So I'm going to just hold off and see how your flowers turn out before I try them too! I'm just a little scared to do it with the whole group - yours look like they are off to a great start!
