Five for Friday!!

Happy Friday, Peeps! Kerri here...

Oh. My. Word. This was such a crazy busy week! I felt like I had soooo many things to do, and didn't get half of them accomplished! PTL that it is the weekend and I can catch-up. A pedi is calling my name tomorrow (my toes are BEYOND fugly right now, hence I have been wearing closed toed shoes EVERY day!)

Since it is Friday, I am linking up with Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky! LOVE IT!

First up...TIMREE painting! I am lucky to work LITERALLY blocks from Timree's art studio in Newport Beach. Do any of you remember her when she was on the Real Housewives of Orange County? Well, she is ADORABLE, uber-talented, and I just LOVE all of her products. I highly recommend her teacher pencil is my favorite teacher gift for my daughter's teachers. 
Isn't mine sooo fabulous??
So anyway, she was offering a free paint class through her Facebook page so she could train one of her  protege teachers, and I got 2 spots for my daughter and her friend. It was the BEST. TIME. EVER!

Here are their owls in progress...

The finished product!! TADA!
Isn't that so fun? 
DISCLAIMER: Sitting next to Katie while she painted was SERIOUSLY giving me HIVES. The gnarly teacher in me was DYING the whole time, and there were a couple of times I had to just get up and walk away. That girl!! Thankfully, we survived with only a couple of emotional scars apiece! HA!

Number 2: The Rainforest is in FULL EFFECT! This week we learned about the layers of the rainforest but first looking at this GINORMOUS poster, which was made for me by my student teacher's dad a few years ago...
It is HUGE!!

Then, we step drew and labeled the layers of the rainforest in our Science notebooks...

Finally, we made our Rainforest layers art from my Rainforest Fun Unit for Open House...

Number 3: Mrs. B's little garden! We made rainforest flowers last week, but they are PERFECT for May too, so I put them up on the back wall to brighten up the room. Aren't they GORGEOUS?? :)
Sigh...I heart art!

Number 4: Earth Day Math centers...this week we were neck deep in all things related to Earth Day and we did some fun Earth Day math centers today...
Fact Families

Number Puzzles

Last, but not least...
AAAHHHH!!!! I ordered a personalized Melonhead from Nikki at Melonheadz Illustrating before she posted that she couldn't make them anymore, and she sent it today! I think I'm going to FREAK the FREAK OUT, it's soooo amazing!! :)
I also bought this set from her ETSY shop today...check it out! HARRY POTTER!! I'm in LOOOVEE!!
Off to dinner with the fam! Have a happy weekend, friends!!
