Five for Friday (a day late)

Hey bloggers!

I'm joining in with Doodlebugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky party! Here are my five random pictures from this past week! :)
1. Open House:

We had our spring open house on Tuesday night, which coordinates with our fundraiser night. The parents come tour the rooms and all of that and then they can also buy a Jimmy Johns dinner in the cafeteria and shop in the gym! We have vendors come in and show off their items (Silpada, Thirty-One, Books Are Fun, etc). It works out really well.

2. Registry Shopping:
My mom & I went out to start pricing baby items!! It was so fun. The picture above is the crib I have decided on...though I don't know yet that it will include all of that pink! I'm 15 weeks right now so we don't know the gender yet. I can't wait!!

3. 2nd Grade Tour:
The first graders were able to hang out in a second grade classroom to watch their group presentations about planets! The first graders loved it so much that we did our own little planet study this week. I also took the opportunity to discuss with them the expectations in a second grade classroom and all of that...we're at that point in the year where they need reminders!! I'm not sure who to credit for the original "bandaid-ing of contractions" because I've seen it all over but this was a picture I took in the 2nd grade classroom!

4. Spring!:

Our classroom is finally starting to show signs of spring (& no, I don't mean the attitudes & behavior of the kids...& teacher)! We have our rainy day art projects up and this week we made our caterpillars! They turned out quite adorable and were so simple! All you need for each child is a leaf template, 5 pom poms, 2 googly eyes, green/yellow crayons, and some glue bottles!

5. Puppy Time:

The weather is finally turning around for us here in Illinois...most of the floods have gone down and we're seeing the sun and nicer temperatures more! It's supposed to be in the 70s & 80s next week! I can't wait. The pup loves it too...he lives for walks :)
