Five for Friday {1/30}

Happy Friday!  The week sure does fly by when you only have 3 days of school!  Apparently a blizzard that produces almost 2 feet of snow means you should stay home, curled up on the couch (until it's time to shovel).

The snowflakes started to fall on Monday morning and we knew it was going to be a big one.  My poor students could barely sit still.  We have only had small amounts of snow so far this year, so they were itching for a big one!  Instead of fighting it, I decided to take advantage of their excitement.  This was their writing assignment for the day.  They loved it!

This week our schedule is taking The Great Kindness Challenge.  We started Monday with an assembly to get the kids charged up about it and they received their challenges.  One of my students can already check off the "give your teacher an apple" box!  We have activities planned for each day of the week (which may go into next week now).  I'll share them as we go along!

I decided to take advantage of our snow days and play around with my Jamberry business.  Fun, fun, fun!  I got to send out hostess kits to some awesome ladies who are going to rock their parties!  Check out my Facebook page to learn more {or send me an email at thecolorfulapple@gmail.com}

After quite a bit of trial and error, I think I may have found a system that works for my Guided Reading Groups!  Check out my post to learn more!

And here's a random post for #5.  My husband decided we should BBQ during the blizzard.  He didn't seem to mind the swirling winds and blustery snow!  We did have power, I just turned the lights off so I could get a good picture.  He's crazy (but he made me dinner)!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I'm just one state over in Connecticut. It seems like we may end up with another snow day on Monday. I'd be fine with no more snow. We had a doozy, now it can just stay dry! Your husband using the grill during the blizzard is funny. Have a great weekend.

  2. We have had snow too...not much but enough for snow days. My hubby was doing the same thing tonight. I find that grilling out in the snow somehow makes it taste better, or maybe seeing him freeze makes me appreciate it more lol. I love the journal prompt!
