Five for Freaky Friday!

I'm linking up with Doodlebugs for a spooky Five for Friday.

 My student teacher is solo teaching this week, so I don't have tons to share. It is kinda nice to have some time to "catch up" on all the nagging tasks I've been meaning to get done since school started. I set up office in the teachers lounge all week, which is fun because I get to talk to people in other grades that I normally don't get to chat with. This also means I'm not all that productive. Can you say social butterfly?

 My student teacher is working with the students on measurement and did a few activities from the oh-so-fabulous Amy Lemons' I Can Measure pack. It is just too adorable and really full of good hands on activities to practice measurement. Here's my favorite part:

 We are also gearing up for an election next week so we're learning about election concepts. BTW, can all those senators, governors, and other people just STOP calling my house all evening?!? Sigh. I digress, but the kids are making lapbooks with some election vocabulary and other elements and then we're going to vote next week. Stay tuned for the results!

It is a well known fact that I'm a book hoarder bibliophile. The kids love my featured book shelf which changes frequently. Do I have enough Halloween books? I think not.

I'm Purplicious! Our admin requires that costumes be based on a book. This was the easiest and most comfy costume ever!


  1. I don't think you can ever have enough books! Halloween or any other kind for that matter! I love your costume - Happy Halloween!

  2. That is an amazing collection of halloween books! I must get better at changing my themed book display - yours looks great!
