Five for Friday!

I'm linking up with Doodlebugs for FFF.

 My nephew just finished basic training for the Air Force. I wish I could be with him and his family during this proud moment. My students wrote him a bunch of letters recently and can't wait to get his responses to their silly questions: Do you have to parachute out of a plane? Do you get to launch missiles? What are you going to be for Halloween?

 We were off school on Tuesday and I had planned to get tons done but ended up going to Target and treating myself to lunch instead. I think I deserved it.

 This week we're learning subtraction strategies and I've been using the Subtraction Interactive Notebook from Angie at Lucky Little Learners. My kids love making these aspects of their interactive notebooks. It also gives them a chance to work on some of their fine motor skills.
sorry it's sideways...too tired to care.

 We're also continuing to practice other skills such as telling time, skip counting and working with three digit numbers. We've been using my Skip Counting Stars activity pack for math stations. The task cards with QR codes have skip counting by 2's, 5's, 10's and 100's. The kids love scanning the QR codes to check their answers.

High school soccer wrapped up this past weekend, with my oldest daughter's team taking 2nd in state! I'm just such a proud mama and can't wait to see my girls honored at the banquet tonight. I know it will be emotional because my oldest is a senior and will be going off to college before I know it. 


  1. Enjoy the time with your daughter. It goes so fast...I know because my son graduates from college on December 21st. Where does time go? Have a wonderful weekend :)

  2. Please tell your nephew thank you for his service. Congrats on your daughter and her team! Mine is graduating this year as well and my son was last year! It has just flown by. I'm a follower! Great blog!

  3. Ah, Suzy, your daughter is beautiful and congrats to her on State placement. And I echo the other mom who said-- hang on to every minute, the ride is just starting. My eldest leaves college for Seattle- sob- when she graduates this spring, and my younger daughter is not far behind! You raise them to be strong independent woman, and then it's so bittersweet when they leave the nest. See you around! Kathleen
