Five for Friday!

Every week I have full intentions on doing this, and then Friday comes and goes and it doesn’t happen!
For some reason, I have been able to be totally caught up on blogging {4x in one week?!}
Here we go…

{one}
My fourth graders are about to leave me! Middle School is a whole different ball game, and they have lockers with old school locks!
We’ve been practicing on different locks to get used to the process.
{two}
The constant circulation of sweets around my school is killing me!
I swear I will melt weight away during the summer because I won’t be munching on junk con.stant.ly.
We had cupcakes for my coworker’s birthday.
I had not one, but two of these suckers.
{three}
Our fourth grade classes got to visit West Virginia University on Wednesday!
We got to play on WVU’s football field, sit in a real college classroom, and eat in the same place all the students eat.
 We also got to take a tour of the downtown campus, which is full of history.
This was one of my favorite buildings when I was a student there.
{four}
We have started making Hope King’s adorable memory books!
My student’s are very excited about them & can’t wait to show them off.
{five}
This week, I began the process of making my own little deck garden.
I have tried to have plants in the past, but they never seem to last very long.
I am really trying hard to have a green thumb like my grandma and at some point have a real garden.
They sure do look pretty right now!
Only 5 more days of school!
I am going camping all weekend with friends & family.
Have a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!

    Practice locks is a great idea. It prepares the kids and is great for motor and thinking skills. My little kids like this activity too.

      They love playing with the locks!

    This is the first year that I am not doing a garden in a garden. I am trying a potted garden. Yikes! Not sure how that is going to work out. I wish you luck with your garden!!!
