Five for Friday {and giveaway winners}

Without prolonging it any longer, here are the winners to Lindsey Griffith's and I's giveaway!

Congrats ladies! Be expecting an email from either Lindsay or I or one of the giveaway contributors either tonight or tomorrow!

Amanda, the email you gave us didn't work. Please email me at by Monday so we can send you your unit!

Now on to Five for Friday! My 2nd to last one before summer. Oh summer. You can't come soon enough!

can I get an amen?
In first grade this week we have been camping using activities from my "A Camping We Will Go". If you are still in school (like me) this unit is a must have for a fun week filled with camping and summer safety fun! Check out what we did this week!
1. We started off the week brainstorming what we knew about camping and then we came up with camp names. The names they came up with were so funny. My favorite was "toothless wonder" HA!

2. Here are some of the things we learned about this week. Sun Safety, Swim Safety, Bike Safety, Campfire Safety. We also did hiking safety, but forget to take a picture of that. Opps!

3. We brainstormed ways we could get hurt this summer and what we would need to make sure we could take care of any boo boos. We learned about first aid and made our own first aid kits.

4. And the funnest part of the week was writing our "how to make s'mores". They worked so hard on these books and couldn't wait to eat their s'mores. For one of the steps, one of my sweeties asked if in their book should they write "next, roast the marshmallow over the fire" or "next, put the s'more in the microwave". Since that's how we made ours :) Haha. Some of the other 1st grade classes actually put their entire s'more in aluminum foil and put it outside. It actually worked! Try it!

5. And last but not least I am jumping on the healthy eating band wagon and getting these last few pesky pounds off! I have recently hooked up with alot of teacher friends on instagram and we all on this app called my fitness pal that allows you to get support from friends! Go check out Ashley's blog, Ms. BBZ, she has some fun stuff planned to make this healthy lifestyle change fun! It's been great so far! And on top of the app I am starting the Advocare 24 day challenge starting tomorrow. So wish me luck!

Have a good weekend and go check out everyone's Five for Fridays over at Doodle Bugs!

  2. That happy hour e-card had me laughing out loud. My vice-principal at my very first school many years ago, used to bust out mudslides after all the students left! One of my favorite

    I feel you...still being in school. We don't get out here in Chicago until the 19th of June. Some of our tracks go until the 26th...that's practically the 4th of July!

    Your camping unit looks fun,

    1. The e-card cracks me up every time I read it! As for the last day of school, only 5 days. I can do it. I will be thinking of you as you go for a couple more weeks. You can do it!!

      Our camping is always a hit every year. The kids love it.

  3. What a great week! Love the quote! I just found your blog through Five for Friday and am a new follower. I must head over to your TpT store to check our your camping unit...

    All the best--

    1. Thanks for stopping by and following me. The camping is always a highlight in my classroom every year. The kids love it. Let me know if you end up camping in your classroom. I'd love to answer any questions you have!

  4. I was hoping that I was that Maria G. who was one of the winners but since I haven't heard from you I guess I wasn't. Boo! That was really nice of you ladies to do the giveaway and hope you continue to have many more followers!

    1. I'm sorry Maria! I wish I could give a unit to every entry!! Thanks for following us and making the giveaway happen!

  5. We made s'mores too, and I thought it was a great idea to buy the jumbo marshmallows that were strawberry flavored. Guess what? Bad idea. Blech!
