Five for Friday!

Well it is Friday again, wahoo! Perfect time for linking up with Five for Friday over at Doodle Bugs Teaching.

Well first of all, I just have to say that it is not yet summer break here, and I cannot believe other schools are already off! Here's my countdown:

It will be still be a long couple of weeks!

Via Art Projects for Kids

We made these Kandinsky inspired trees this week. Although the instructions say they are "fall" trees, I thought they were so bright and cute they would be perfect for this spring/summer weather we have been having. Plus they brighten up a bulletin board amazingly! The instructions can be found over at Art Projects for Kids, if you haven't visited that website, you must. There are a million art ideas with full instructions for various grade levels.

Are your students jumping off the wall as the end of the year approaches? I don't know what it is, but the students just can't seem to sit still lately. Because of this, engaging brain breaks are a must to keep on hand, so today I'm going to share another of my favourites, Five Little Monkeys!

The kiddos will love it!  

I have been working hard to update some of my older products and this week I finished up with my Oliver Jeffers Author Study:

 I won't bother showing what it looked like before, because that might be painful!

If you've read this far, you definitely deserve a freebie. Last night, I updated my Summer Vacation Mini Pack freebie. This freebie pack contains a few fun printables to keep students busy during these last few weeks (or days for some of us!).

What did you do this week? Head on over to Doodle Bugs to link up!


  1. I love that art website- I have used it so many times! I display her step by step drawings on my white board and the work always turns out so great! Yay for you on updating products- seems like I am always updating something. My project last week was to make square thumbnails of covers so they show up better! It's really easy to do I discovered! I have finished about 10 and still have lots left to do! Thanks for sharing!

    Teachers Are Terrific!

    1. I never thought to make square thumbnails, I'll have to figure out how to do that!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a great post! I LOVE those trees!... They are super cute! I've never checked out that website before so I'll have to do that! I'm also heading over to check out your author study pack! Hope you're having a great weekend! :)
