5 for Friday - Come see what went on this week!



I am linking up with Doodle Bug's Five for Friday linky party!  Here are 5 things representing my week!


School holiday on Monday for me so instead of doing anything productive I just snuggled up with my dog Daisy all day. 




 We are having a fundraiser right now called Pennies for Pasta.  It is to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma society. Our school goal was to raise about 2,500 (which is about $3.00 per student).  I currently have 21 students and just ourselves we raised over $250! WOW!  We'll keep on collecting pennies (or more) for the next week.  By the way, the class that raises the most money get lunch provided by Olive Garden and tickets to the San Antonio Spurs (basketball) and San Antonio Rampage (hockey) tickets!




 Here are some of my kiddos working on a Scholastic News magazine.  My entire class LOVES LOVES LOVES reading these.  Usually they read them together and then do the comprehension questions on the back independently.  We have such great discussion over these magazines!  I was able to get the Scholastic News from Donors Choose.  I have another project of Donors Choose open for only 4 more days... click here if you want to check it out.



Our 100th day of school is on February 5th and I am ready with this awesome new shirt I had made!

and last but not least something that NEVER EVER  rarely happens in San Antonio, Texas.....



We had a SNOW DAY today!  Well actually an ice day! There wasn't any snow where I live but it got so unusually cold and we had rain overnight which meant everything was frozen so they called school off today.  I know that sound pathetic to some of you who get 10 feet of snow and still go to school but we are not equipped here in South Texas to deal with frozen streets.  Above is my 16 year old son, Jake, acting like he is five while "playing" in the ice!  

It actually stayed cold all day today but most of the ice has melted. In fact, tomorrow the temperature is suppose be 65 and on Sunday it will be 77 degrees........ yup, warm enough for shorts.  That's how we roll here in South Texas!

Tomorrow I am going to a workshop called Engage the Brain and then to dinner with some of my teammies.
I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Stay warm friends!
