Linky Love

I've been wanting to blog all weekend but things have been crazy busy. Now that it's Sunday I am catching up on all things school (report cards, benchmark tests and lesson plans), but before I really get started with all that I think a little blog time is order. I think I have my priorities in the right place, right? :)

Time to link up with a couple of my favorite linky parties.....

First up, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five on Friday.


1) Girl Scout Cookies
Five boxes might be a little excessive for my little household of two but they are just so yummy!!!

2) College Week = New Sweatshirts  
We are celebrating college week at the end of March. I loved Chico State!! And I think that college week justifies a shopping spree on my alma mater's website. I picked up a new sweatshirt, a t-shirt and cute little onesie for my friend's sweet new baby. 

3) Colonial America Unit 
I am loving our Colonial America Unit and have used this book a lot! It's a good one!

4) Planet Rap 
Our art teacher takes over one unit in Science or Social Studies each year and teaches it through art integration. She is amazing! This year she is teaching our space unit. Here is one of the resources she is using. The kids LOVE it. :) 

5) Task Card Scavenger Hunt
Time to start the major test prepping! I've been trying to spice things up a bit since it can be sooo boring. One way I've done this is by creating test prep task cards and taping them to the walls and windows around the classroom. Then the kiddos wonder around the room and answer the questions on there answer sheets. It is nice to get them up and moving!

I'm also linking up with Latoya from Flying into First Grade.

This week's topic: 2 Truths and a Lie 

2 Truths and a Lie 
1) I have three sisters (Jo, Jennifer and Megan). 
2) My favorite ice cream is Thrifty's Chocolate Brownie. 
3) My car has 150,000 miles on it. 

Well, there are my 3 random "facts". 

Can you guess which one is a lie?????

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! Enjoy your Sunday! :) 


  1. I just found your blog through Let's Get Acquainted. I'm going to guess that your lie is about Thrifty ice cream since it can be hard to find these days. Hope you might pop by my blog and take a guess too!

  2. My six-year-old just started Girl Scouts this January, so we have at least two dozen boxes for our family of four :/

    Love the Colonial America book. Using it right now! We're about to do the New England four-fold book with the triangular trade on the inside.

    And I'm guessing that 150,000 is NOT your car's mileage :)

  3. I found your blog though the linky party. I think your lie is your favorite ice cream flavor. I'm your newest follower.

  4. We ate our box of cookies almost immediately...I actually did eat one whole box the day I got my order. It was a VERY. STRESSFUL.DAY!!

    I say number one is your lie :)


  5. My best friend sent a care package with Thin Mints to me in my village. I ate one sleeve in a single sitting and I'm trying to be VERY careful to not look in my freezer to eat the other ones. I blame you for my craving right now for cookies. ;)

    Thanks for the add! I'll be returning the favor.

  6. Stopping by from the linky party. I'm going to guess that your lie is about ice cream. Would love for you to stop by my blog sometime.

  8. I think the ice cream is a lie. Do they even make Thrifty's ice cream anymore.

  9. I think I have already discovered that you are a northern California girl, but when I saw that Chico State sweatshirt I got so excited! I am Chico Alumni and am fortunate to still live and teach there. Yay Chico!

    1. Wow, it is a small world. I am at CCDS. What class were you in for student teaching?
