2-28-14 Five for Friday

What a week it was. Here's a snippet into mine with photos and captions. Later I will link up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching and read what my friends have been up to.

Let's get started...

Earlier this week my kindergarten neighbors came and read a poem to us. It was so cool! Their teacher is amazing and gets them to do some incredible reading, writing and math.

I enjoyed watching this youngster sit and meditate in the sun at recess.

Another youngster helped me feed the calf. The problem I had (but not the youngster) was that the can was almost empty. He needed to measure 6 cups into a large coffee can. It seems that he figured out how to do this task, even without help from me.

For writing today the kids wrote in their school memories book. It is a fun activity at the end of each month. I loved this picture one friend drew.

I get the me and Jett names. But B-1? What was that I asked him. He looked at me incredulously--"Bartel." He didn't say "duh," but he looked it in his eyes. "B-1" is what my students write on their art papers so that the teacher can return them. Wonder if he will ever know what Bartel really looks like...

Another year older. For one of my students anyway. We sing "On the Day You Were Born" and the kids do such a nice job. Today while we were singing, I enjoyed watching the birthday girl grin so big.

Now it's time to finish the movie, Man of Steel. with my family and then enjoy a lovely night of sleep.

Pin It!


  1. I love reading about your week. I love the birthday girl photo, I guess because I love it when they are smiling like that. I love to this sort of smile on my flesh and blood children. I hope your student figures out that Bartel is not ACTUALLY spelled B-1. It gave me a good laugh though! Happy weekend!

  2. Ooh, I like the school memory book idea, but I do think it's sad you don't know your own name lol. It's also so sweet that you make your friends feel so special on their special day. Sara.


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one!
