Five for Friday: November 8th!

Whew! Kids just left for the day, and I literally just put my head down on my desk and thought about how thankful I am that it is Friday! The last half of my day I had a horrible headache. Daylight Savings Time is the death of me EVERY YEAR! I feel like I go to bed so early and feel tired ALL THE TIME! I'm hoping it gets better soon! This long weekend is a start!

Along with the weekend, it is also one of my favorite linkys, Doodle Bug's Five For Friday!!

It has been a wild, but very slow week! I am super glad to share it with you!

Have you been a part of Farley's Currently that happens at the first of every month? Well, I downloaded her "Currently: For your classroom" and have been using it once a month in my classroom. I have students fill it out and color it. They are 7th graders, so I only see them for 45 minutes every day. This activity allows me to get to know them more and I will give them all of their months at the end of the school year.

 This is my bundle of joy, Gibson. Me and the mister got him at the beginning of the week. He weighs 1.9 pounds and is the cutest thing. I can't wait to go home to him every day. So precious.

This is a new recipe I found (please excuse the iPhone screenshot, this is how I save all my ideas).
It is a healthier version of banana nut bread. A friend of mine has made them and they were DELICIOUS!

This is a picture of my classroom. You may be wondering, "Why just an empty classroom?"
Do you ever have an issue moving desks, then at the end of the day, your desks look like they have been randomly put in spots, like a chaotic mess? 
Well, I am trying to move these ANNOYING shaped desks into groups. Students have to move them to get into them. 
Bright side: If I didn't have a big classroom, I could not even do this at all. So... tough.

Raise your hand if you LOVE this show! Oh. My. Goodness. This is my TV guilty pleasure. Olivia Pope is the best character! If you have not seen this show, check out the first few seasons on Netflix! I miss the teachers from the school I student taught at. This would be the topic of discussion on Friday at lunch. 

I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend! Enjoy the weather and do something adventurous!


  1. Whoa! I like you already... A few weeks ago I discovered Scandal through all my instagram teacher friends and have watched all three seasons (up to where you guys are in the States- I live in New Zealand so we're way behind) I LOVE it! Because I'm all caught up I've just started watching Revenge online too. I've never watched so much tv in my life but it's been a life saver since my surgery!

    I didn't know there was a Currently for the classroom! I'll have to do it next year- we only have five weeks of this year to go and we're finished!

    Thanks for stopping over at my blog- I'm so glad I've found yours! Are you on instagram?

    By the way Gibson is adorable!

  5. Love the new blog design! Did you change the name too?! I thought it used to be Little Bit of Country in the Classroom? Either way, love it :)
