Five for Friday


My heart goes out to everyone in Boston.


Our research is finished!  Finally! I have two walls of posters now and my kids are so proud of themselves.  Click here for the report template and here for the poster template.


Swimming pool.  35 students.  Pouring rain starts.  Heavy winds begin.  Temperature drops what feels like 20 degrees.  Wet towels.  Walk back to school... Fun!!


Yay for QR codes!  My students and I are hooked.  I tried one and we loved it so much I made another one the next night.  I hoping for some time to make some more activities using them this weekend.  Click here for the parts of speech freebie I shared earlier in the week.  The other one I created was for our vocabulary words...I typed the clue and they scanned for the answer.


I am at the International Reading Association Conference in San Antonio on the Riverwalk today through Monday, so I will have much to share very soon!


  1. Can't wait to hear about your conference! :)
