Five for Friday (or Sunday)

fiveforfriday

Ok, so I know it's not Friday but there is nothing wrong with being Fashionably late.  So I am linking up with Kristen at

1.  I am watching the Golden Globes. I am a HUGE TV and Movie addict.  I am currently amazed that Damian Lewis from Homeland is British.  When did that happen?  Well I guess he always has been, but I didn't know and I love that show!  If you don't watch Homeland you must.  Homeland is filmed in my hometown and I want to be an extra so bad.    If you do watch it, then this will amuse you...


2. In math, we have been learning about Area and Geometry.  We use Investigations, so sometimes you might be like "Huh? You're teaching both at the same time?"  Yep, that is the way we roll with Investigations.  I love Investigations!  It's one of those things where you either love it or hate it.  I think sometimes I may be in the minority.  Anyway, the kiddos made these shape posters this week.  They had two rules, they had to be 4 square units and the sides had to be completely touching.  They loved it!


Then later in the week, we explored triangles and quadrilaterals with straws and twist ties. 

3.  It has been so warm here in NC, so we made some cute Melted Snowmen!  I loved them because they were all so different.  We didn't use templates, they just drew their pieces and cut them out. 


We also wrote some Haikus to go along with our cute craftivity!




4.  I am moving into a new apartment, so I have been scouring Pinterest for some decorating ideas.  Here are some of my faves!




5. I have been doing WW since September and I haven't stuck to it as much as I would have liked, but I hit 20 pounds this week! That was enough inspiration to keep working hard!  I've even teamed up with my friend Lindsay at My Life as a Third Grade Teacher to keep ourselves accountable to working out!  

Well, I am going to enjoy the rest of the Golden Globes and savor the rest of my weekend.  Have a great week!
