Five For Friday Part 2!

We are thrilled that we can link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another edition of Five For Friday! Last week we found some awesome new blogs to stalk and gathered some new friends/followers of our own. Thanks for reading!

Here we go...

 I Fought the Law and the Law Won

Okay, well, I didn't exactly fight the law, but I sure had my run-ins with the law this week! On Tuesday I received a ticket, and today, I left the parking meter a little too long and came back to a parking violation

Getting Organized!

I started this project last week while I was on Spring Break and finally finished. I have always kept important documents in a small file box and lately it has been difficult to find necessary papers. I decided to organize my files into separate binders. Now it is easy for me to find important documents!

Getting Carried Array!
My intervention math group has started beginning multiplication strategies. As you can see, we have been making a lot of arrays. We played a game that I created called, "Roll an Array," where the students roll the die to form a multiplication sentence and draw the array in the grid. We also used Cheeze-Its to create arrays (doesn't food always make math more fun?!). My students even created arrays on this sloppy grid paper that I drew and put post-it notes in the squares to create different arrays.


Prayers Please
You may remember us mentioning that a good friend of ours was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. This came as quite a shock as she is only 31-years-old. Today she was supposed to start chemo, but a CAT Scan revealed some sort of spot on her liver. She had more testing today and should have the results by Monday. Please pray that it is nothing. She and her family has been through so much over the past 2 months.

Lastly, I leave you with this

 I saw this sign today as I was browsing in a store (right around the time I was being issued that parking ticket!). 

Happy Friday and have a great weekend! Don't forget to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and share your week! 


  1. I'll be praying for your friend, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 and a half years ago, she has been 5 years cancer free-but I know how stressful it is on the family when you are going though it.

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your friend...31! Yikes!

    I LOVE your binders... I may need to make some of those myself. And good job on being productive over spring break... I wasn't.

    P.S. I'm in the OC too... and am your newest follower.

  3. 1. Love your blog name!
    2. Binders equal love for me. I love organization.
    3. I married the law and now I don't worry so much about tickets. :)
    Love your blog.
    Fabulous in First

  4. Oh I fought the law and the law won too. But then one time I got a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign. But I did stop. I know I stopped because I had to turn around and talk to my kiddo in the backseat. He says I blew through the stop sign. ( Dude that's called making a turn). I asked him to reconsider because I would go to court. I guess he did reconsider because he never turned in the ticket and thus I never got a court date. 1 year later, no ticket turned in= no ticket period! Maybe your cop wont turn in the ticket. Fingers crossed.
