Five for Friday ~ April 1

Happy Friday and April Fool's Day!!  I can't believe we have made it to April and there are only TWO months of school left!!  How did this happen?!  Today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to bring you my five for Friday!!

Our thankful board is one of my favorite parts of my room!  I love to see how it evolves and changes over the year as they reflect WEEKLY on what they are thankful for.

Our thankful cards are one of my favorite parts of our week.  Every Friday my students write their thankful cards, reflecting on something that they are thankful for that day.  Students are able to write or illustrate what they are thankful for.  We then put these up on the wall so they can see them as well.

I am so excited for this new shirt!!  Did you see this post!?!  My friend Jennifer is making these shirts now and they are AMAZING!!

Have you seen Ashlyn's new blog design reveal!! It is AMAZING!!  BEAUTIFUL!!  So awesome!!  Plus, she is having an AMAZING giveaway that you want to go enter!!

Our final day digging deep into the Easter story is always an interesting day to see what students think they would have done!

This week we finally finished the Easter story!  It is always interesting to hear students reflect on what they would have done if they were the one walking with Jesus on the path to Emmaus and what they think would have happened!  So excited that we were able to dive deep into this unit, and we can't wait to look at Lazarus next week!!

I LOVE this song this week!  It came on at school and I immediately knew I had to share it with all of you this week!


  1. I love your thankful cards! What a great idea!
    Those shirts are also super cute!!
    Shine on in First Grade

  2. I also really like your thankful cards! Do you have a template that you use for the cover?

  3. Your thankful cards are so cute! Great idea!

  4. I would love to do the thankful cards! So, they are always on display and you just add to them each week?
    I do something like that at home with my family - we have a Joy Jar. We write down good memories or funny things the kids say, or throw in our movie stubs, zoo tickets, etc. Then, at the end of the year on New Year's Eve, we dump it out and reminisce about the wonderful year we have had!
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love your thank fun cards! I have my third graders tell me one positive thing that happened that week as they leave for the weekend. It is defiantly harder for some to reflect on the week! I love the idea of writing it down for everyone to see!

    Thank you!
