It's Friday!

And I'm ready to share my five random things from the day. Later I will link up with Doodle Bugs and browse more entires. It is a great way to look back, destress, have a laugh (or two) and get brilliant ideas for next year.


This is my shadow at the first recess today. Can you tell that I am wearing my long (past my knees) winter parka? It is May 3 people! I should be wearing flip flops, not Ugg boots! The wind chill was 34 degrees. Hoping for warmer weather, soon.


Today I began the Spring screening on AIMSweb. No fun at all. I completed 20/22 students on the nonsense word fluency. It was disappointing. I wanted more students above the target. That may have influenced my crabby-ness in the afternoon.


This was also the school-wide BBQ cookout. It was a little too cold to eat our cookout outside. Some teachers ate in their rooms. I said, nope, we are eating in the gym (which doubles as our cafeteria) and using tables. The kids were super impressed that I ate with them (I think I was required too). Their impressed-ness was weird. Because I have eaten with them each Tuesday and Thursday in our class since about October. Oh well. They had good hamburgers and I had some oatmeal. They had the better lunch.


When the testing was finished we needed a dance party. We have never had one before. Sure, we have brain breaks, sing songs, but let them have at it? We sang and danced to Taylor Swift. Our markers and glue bottles were our mikes. Then a sweet boy asked, "Can we have a boy song now?" OK, Son of Man it is. (From Tarzan, reminds me of my youngest son--he used to watch that movie every chance he could get.)


Now, homemade pizza and a friend for the night.

Grown up drink and kid drink. We will not confuse them.

Have a lovely weekend my friends!

Pin It!


  1. I'm am all about dance breaks! It's an awesome way to get the kids up and moving and get their brain juices flowing again :)

    Sorry it's still so cold - praying for warmer weather soon!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I've never been brave enough to do a dance break. We've been singing Will.I.Am's "What I Am" song from Sesame Street - it's so upbeat - I love it!
    And yes, this weather is too crazy. A little chilly for recess this afternoon, but there was lots of sunshine!
    Have a great weekend, Alice

  3. I love the adult beverage next to the kid beverage!
    Have a wonderful weekend Alyce!

  4. Love your five. The winter parka, not so fun. We had snow on the ground Thursday morning when we got up! Ugh! Then my Dad, Red, and I went to the rodeo that evening in the c-c-c-c-cold. I tried to get a good look at your pizza! Yum, love the pizza and the friday night tradition! <3
