Five for Friday (on Saturday!)

Ya'll know how much I love a good linky!  Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching has a great one with Five for Friday!  

1. The hubs and I took Raegan back to the Dr. for her 2nd checkup visit.  We got great news that she is healing great from her surgery and she only has to wear her helmet another month!!!  Our next checkup isn't unit April :)  Yay for good news!!!!

2. I am back in full Taco Monday swing!  We had to stay away from my Monday staple while Raegan healed from surgery.  It was so hard to miss out on yummy tacos and the convos we have with the staff.  After going there almost every Monday for the past 2 years, they are like family.

3. We have a big PD coming up Tuesday for our district and I am presenting Math Investigations for 3-5.  I worked on that with our District math Curriculum facilitator this week.  We ended up working from 1:30-6pm one night, but its all planned and copied, so its worth it!  I LOVE Investigations!!!!!  If your not teaching it, your missing out!

4. We got a minuscule amount of snow, which resulted in a 2 hour delay Friday.  I was able to get some paper work done during this time.  I finally finished the Kindergarten math folders for the class I have been helping out in.  We finally have a certified teacher subbing in K!!!  I have been pulling double duty since November teaching in K and doing my Instructional Facilitator duties.  So happy to be back in my original role :)

5. My biggest news of the week.....I am going to see Lucy Calkins and Marcy Cook in March!!!!!  Our district is sending several Instructional Facilitators and teachers.  I am super excited about the Calkins one because it is in Columbia, SC and I am getting a hotel with 2 other IFs to stay the night!!!!  Girls night, whoop whoop!!!!  

So there ya go!  My Five for Friday, or in my case, Saturday.  Head over and link up your Five with Kacey!


  1. Jealous of your delay! I had to drive through about 4 inches the other day. So glad that your little girl is doing better!!

    1. I love a delay! No make up day and get work done!

  3. I found your blog via Doodle Bugs' linky and am your newest follower. I'm beyond jealous that you get to see Lucy Calkins present. I used her writing program at my old school and loved it. The school that I am at now doesn't use it so I sneak it in when I can. It is such a wonderful program! I can't wait to hear how the session goes!


    1. Thanks Erin! I am in the process of creating resources to support the Writing Workshop!

  4. OMG!!! I want to go with you to see Lucy!! I am using her Units of Writing for the second year now and I am in looove!! I am totally jealous!

    1. Come on down to Columbia!!! I will make room for your in our hotel haha!

  5. I love finding new third grade bloggers!! I met Lucy Calkins once, years ago...she is an interesting gal. I hope you enjoy the conference!!

    Bless your daughter's heart!! I'm so glad she is healing well! That's so hard! I love the subtitle to your blog- I'm constantly trying to find a balance!

  7. LOVE Marcy Cook! I saw her in Charlotte probably about 10 years ago. She had a broken arm at the time, and she said that she wasn't at her best, but she still managed to get everyone excited about math. I still use her tile activities!

    Glad to hear that your daughter is doing well. That must have been so stressful!
