Five For Friday

Happy Friday!  Let me tell you, I am worn out.  I think have figured out part of my exhaustion issue.  Normally I start school mid-August, then September roles around and we get a 3-day weekend.  It's a nice time to catch your breath before the long stretch until Thanksgiving break (we don't get Columbus Day or a fall break).  Well, this year we started after Labor Day and I have not had a break other than weekends.

So that's the reason, I am declaring that is why I AM EXHAUSTED!

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday.  It was a long week, but a great one!

We finished up (for the most part) our green team unit.  We did a fun recycling sort with real recyclable products and picture from food adds.  The kids enjoyed this.  We still our working on our C is for Conservation book, but that will be a work in progress for a little while.  

I will be back this weekend to share what we did with our interactive notebooks.  The kids are really enjoying making their own non-fiction book of our school year.

We went to the worm farm this week, a first grade favorite.  We go to a farm called the Blue Belly Worm Farm.  Farmer Mark teaches us all about worms, we dig for worms, and best of all climb a huge hill of dirt (worm poop).  The kids love it.  

Luckily my son is in first grade (not my class), so I am there for all of his field trips but I don't have to take a day off.  Here is is playing with worms.

And now a shot of him after climbing the dirt pile.  Ew!- as I am singing the Jimmy Fallon and Will-I-Am song!

After a fun day at the worm farm, we had our annual worm day.  We made worm buddies, made a worms in dirt treat, worm measuring and some worm science.  Fun stuff!

I love this time of year.  I have an obsession with pumpkin products.  Trader Joe's can be a dangerous place for me because I will buy and try anything with pumpkin in it.  I also love going to the pumpkin patch with the family.  It's such a fun time.  We always go to this one farm that is about an hour away, but it has a train, corn maze, slide, and so many other fun events.

On an ending note, I thought I would direct you to some freebies that are great for this time of the year.  Click each below to download.

Enjoy, and I hope you have a fantabulous weekend!
