Better Late Than Never ~ Five For Friday ~ Finally!

I'm finally linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five For Friday!






Morning Messages

Last week we had a snow day due to a nor'easter.  In addition, we wrapped up our chapter on landforms and focused on suffixes in spelling:





How to Brush Your Teeth

Last week the kids started to share their "how to" paragraphs:


We recently wrapped up our "Expert Book" unit so the kids are choosing to continue with writing chapter books that include a cover and an about the author page!



Front Row

In Computer Lab, the kids have been enjoying Front Row:





Front Row   is free and includes a huge variety of ELA and Math activities.  Even better, the kids LOVE doing this!  If you've never heard of it, check it out here.

Here's a close-up of a measurement question:

 

Lost Tooth Traditions and Stories

Last week the kids began writing about a time they lost a tooth.  The stories are quite extraordinary, too!

First, we read this great book:

Click on the cover for more details on Amazon.

We love learning what other kids do when they lose a tooth.  Let's just say that several countries have tooth "rats!"

Background Information

My husband and I were going to a wedding on Long Island at the end of February, and I needed a new dress.  I looked in all the usual places ~ TJ Maxx, Marshall's ~ but I wasn't finding anything.  Plus, everything was picked over from Christmas, and it was snowy and cold.  I decided to shop on Amazon, and amazingly found a perfect dress!

Now presenting ~ 

I ended up with a navy blue velvet dress that is super comfortable and versatile:


https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NBCBF03/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

What I love about this dress is the ruching at the waist; the v-neck; the side zipper which makes it easy to take off.  Also, you can dress it up or wear it casually.


Here's a picture from Amazon:



In addition, if you like Modcloth dresses, it's worth taking a look at these ACEVOG dresses.  The price point is also better.

Well, it's almost eight o'clock on a Friday night ~ time to get ready for bed!  Thanks for visiting.  I'd love to hear if you've ever tried this brand of dresses.
