Made it Monday!

I'm linking up with the fabulous Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for MY FIRST Monday Made It!

Totally not teacher relate but I made these great Eggplant Sticks.  I am IN LOVE with Skinny Tastes blog, as well as eggplant.  Trader Joes had some nice looking eggplant, and so I thought, why not?!

Here is my take:

Here is Skinny Taste's take:

Five for Friday! 4/4/14 

The weeks lately seem to just carry on, and on.  The days go by quickly with the kiddos, but Friday never can come fast enough!  End of it all, it IS Friday, I am in yoga pants, and trying to just unwind!  Here is for Doodle Bugs Teaching five for FRIDAY!


Our school art teacher is AWESOME.  She does amazing things with our kiddos, and displays them in a way I could never think of.  I wish I had that creativity!


Here is our library!  Our librarians made a igloo out of milk cartons, isn't it just the cutest!?  I have seen this on the web, and wow was it  A LOT of work, but how cute is it!?  

 How do you have your kiddos check out books in the library?  I allow 2 books in Kindergarten.  One just right book, and one book they are interested in.  They check out books in the library on Friday, return on Monday, and those two books stay in their book bin until library time on Friday.  Each day they get to check 2 new books from my library that are just right.  What works best for you?!

   My kids LOVE  See my previous post about that!  Here they are learning how to stay stress free with a breathing exercise!  Enjoy!

  I live in WI and our basketball team from UWM are heading to the final four!   Our state is PUMPED!  Go Bucky Go!  Cheer for the Badgers tomorrow friends!!!


  Here is your freebie of the day!  /sw/ and /tw/ blend sort sheet!  Enjoy!

Go Noodle! & Freebie!

My kiddos love brain breaks, so do I and he helps us to all re-group!  I heard about this GREAT resource website called Go Noodle.  

It is adorable! 

It's free
It's free
It's free!!!!

The have yoga, breathing energizers, zumba, and dancing! They are 1-3 minutes quick videos that you can and your kiddos can participate in daily!  They pick a avitar, a name, and then the kids can earn points!  This way we don't have to hunt all over the internet, watch and rate and then link to our lessons, it's all in one spot! (Why didn't I think of that?!  Haha)  

In order to get access to this terrific resource the first thing you do is go to GoNoodle and sign up for your free account by clicking {here}.  My kids love hearing the silly jokes the little avitars have for us each time too...  Now....  

   Go Noodle!!!!  (I mean it!)  :)

Peek at my week!  Love as always looking at Mrs. Wills lesson plans.  She has a great lesson shared on her website.   Check it out below:

And here is my take on it (yes very low key compared to Mrs. Wills....)
