Five for Friday!

This is my first time linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday link up!  
1.  Today we concluded our dress up days with Favorite Team Day!  Of course, I wore Tennessee Vols gear.  My little one wanted to match me this morning so he wore his UT jersey, too.  So, so sweet!
2.  We celebrated Read Across America week with an author visit today.  Author Kimberly Johnson came to our school and shared some great Writing tips with our students!  She was a great speaker and kept them very engaged!
Here are a few of the books she has written.  Our students will get the chance to order them so I will definitely order the giraffe book for my little one!

  
3.  Our 4th graders recently performed an original play titled Flashback to Freedom.  They wrote their own lines, created their own props, and planned their costumes.  It was really cute!  This was the Great Plains Native American group.  
These were students from a colonial school.  

4.  Tomorrow is our district's first Math bowl.  I'll be honest, my first thought was "Saturday morning, 8:30 am {not counting my 30 min drive}, my 2 year old in a gym having to be quiet, yikes!"....BUT, after working with my three students for about 6 weeks on preparing for it and seeing their excitement, I am excited to see them perform tomorrow!  They have worked really hard to prepare.

5.  I normally do not read historical fiction, but I have read two AWESOME books lately and could hardly put them down!  They are both related to the slavery era {which happens to be what I'm teaching in Social Studies right now}.  I highly recommend them!
