Five for Friday: field trips, bats and prizes!

Hey everyone! I'm linking up with the Oh So Fab Doodlebugs for the best linky party of the week. It's Five for Friday time and here's my crazy week:

 I just love Kacey from Doodlebugs! I recently won a little giveaway on her blog and my prize arrived in the mail on Saturday! Eeeeeek! I was a little bit down in the dumps with a cold and some bad news but this little package just turned my day around!
She sent me a personalized notebook, Sharpies, jumbo paper clips, a Scentos marker and the most darling string/twine. It was such a nice surprise to get something besides bills in the mail. Thank you Kacey!
We're doing a big bat unit in 2nd grade right now and my sweet student teacher was so excited about it that she just took off running with the idea and came up with some great science lessons. 

Meanwhile, I made some batty telling time task cards for math. My kids are all over the place with their telling time skills so I made differentiated task cards with three different levels: telling time to the hour, quarter hour and 5 minute intervals. 

I'm using the time to the hour with my intervention group while the rest of the class is using time to the quarter hour this week.

 Next week, we'll move up to the time to the 5 minute interval. You can grab my Going Batty for Telling Time pack for 50% off until this Sunday. 
Thursday we had a field trip to the zoo. It was my darling sister who convinced our grade level to go to the zoo in the fall.

It was a perfect day! The weather was in the 70's, the animals were active, and we were the only school there! 
We also made these cute hot air balloons for our hallway. We have a huge hot air balloon fiesta in Albuquerque every year and it literally fills the skies with balloons. We took their school pictures and taped them in the baskets.

One of my upper grade friends is doing multiplication with decimals in her 5th grade class so I made this little task card set for her. It's on sale for $1 through the weekend!
