Five for Friday

Another Friday - already! I am sure time is going way too fast for some of you about to finish the school year - it is always very busy! Good luck getting everything done!

It’s time to link up with Five for Friday once again.

This week, on Monday morning, I was greeted with two surprises.

The first – the desk fairy had visited, I was very excited, I didn’t know there were cutesy teachers at the school whole like borders and clipart like me!
The second, a boy in my class had given me a lovely present for Mother’s Day, even though I am not a mother! That was super nice of his family, so we talked in our class about some things teachers do that Mum’s do too! He is from Nigeria and his family have only been at the school for 3 months – they are beautiful!

We finally had some great rain! We really hope it continues so all the farmers can get their crops out soon!
National Testing is Over! We were so excited. As I blogged about earlier in the week, we had a week full of fun in the afternoon to have something to look forward to everyday. The kiddies were superstars!
Don’t let the pigeon…. – Persuasive Writing

When I was looking after my cousin in California, we used to read “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus” and other pigeon books on a daily basis. Although Lily was only 6 months old, she loved them, and I do too! I have all the books and love reading them to my class each year. This year, we used “Should the Pigeon Drive the Bus?” as a persuasive writing topic. The end result was some of the best persuasive writing I have seen from Grades 3 and 4’s! What a fabulous topic!


  1. So, the desk fairy visited YOU? Too cute! What a nice Mother's Day gift:) I always think of Mother's Day for all the special women in our lives because even if you don't have "your own" children, women all display mothering qualities to others naturally! Here's to women...Cheers!!
