Five for Friday Linky:)

Hello all!!!
I am joining Doodle Bugs Five for Friday linky party.  I have been wanting to do this one for a while but can never seem to get my act together!!!  Well I'm joining, but my act still isn't
Here are 5 random things from my week and I mean random:)
1.  This is how my week started (Sunday counts, right?)  We went to my daughter's college to meet the new boyfriend (love him!) and watch them play volleyball in a "Sweet Heart Beach Tourney".  They got second:)  It was awesome! 
BUT, spent all day at Lacrosse (Saturday with my son) and all day Sunday at my daughter's college SO, I have been feeling like the mouse on the wheel......all week! 
 Always behind, never catching up!!!

2. These are a sneak preview of a post I'm going to do later.  These are Social Studies journals that my kiddos made for an end of unit project.  We have been studying explorers.  They had to write a journal with at least 5 entries, as if they were one of the members of an expedition to Florida.
They really enjoyed this and I think they did a great job! 

3.  Valentine's day.....need I say! 
If I eat all the chocolate I got I'll be 400 pounds!!!!
4.  We are working on theme in my classroom right now.  That's a hard one for my kiddos to get so I bought these great Theme Task Cards from Rachel Lynette.  I can't wait to use them in my small groups next week:)  My silly wireless printer refused to work for 2 it's working again so I finally printed these yesterday!
5.  Totally random and not teacher related but my new fave drink!  I have had several of these from Starbucks but about died when I saw you could buy a pack of 5 and make your own!!!!!  Love, love! 
My "TO DO" list is a mile long for this 3 day weekend!!
I hope you all have a refreshing weekend!!
Be blessed! 


  1. Hey Tara! I'm glad you had a nice time with your daughter! I know what you mean about the list...I have a lot planned for these three days :) :)

    Happy weekend dear Tara!!

  2. I will have to try that starbucks VIA! I love those drinks at Starbucks too! Hope you can catch up a bit this weekend :)

  4. When I am gone all weekend.. I start my week frazzled and never feel like I can get caught up... I try really hard to keep sunday afternoons/nights free to get ready for the week!

    I got tons of chocolate too. Then went to the grocery after school and bought stuff to make chocolate chip cookies.. what was I thinking????

  5. Tara Your daughter and her bf are adorable!!!

    I can totally relate to your list to!

    Now I have to add starbucks to mine!

  6. I was spoiled by my kiddos for Valentine's Day too! I will be eating chocolate for the next three years! :)

    Your explorers journals look great - I love having my kiddos write journal entries as famous historic people or book characters; I feel it really makes them think and step into the story or historic event.


  7. We were having a hard time with theme this week, too. I'll have to check that out. The explorer journals look fantastic!

    Have a great weekend!

  14. That is wonderful that you were able to see your daughter and new boyfriend. I cannot even imagine watching beach volleyball right now! I love Rachel's task cards too and have more on my to-do list to get ready. A mouse on a wheel sounds about right!
