Five for Friday

Time for my favorite linky party. I'm sooo exhaustipated though so I'll be brief.
Anyone else feeling this week?
I think I went to bed early everyday all week and if you know me you know that this is NOT normal! I usually run best on 4-5 hours of sleep. I've been getting 7-8 hours all week! WHAT!?
I finally finished TPRI testing (right after WRAP testing) my 24 kiddies. I am so ready for testing to be over. Can I get an AMEN!? I love teaching, but if we could go without testing that would great! Wednesday we test our littles our district math benchmark. . . BLEH!
My students are just too precious. We got to change matter this week with heat. They have LOVED every minute. We also melted crayons, chocolate chips, and butter. . .  Pretty much anything we could make a mess with.
I need to get better at remembering to take photos during the school day . . .
We made sensory poems and my students totally rocked them! It helps that we had already covered our 5 senses in science. I literally gave them one example and they WANTED to try it.
My example:
                            June is yellow.
                            It looks like fun in the sun.
                            It smells like fresh cut grass.
                            It tastes like popsicles. 
                            It sounds like kids laughing.
                            June feels like sliding down a water slide. 
My little firsties chose their own month and their ideas were so creative. This one brought tears to my eyes. . .
I dislike having a sub with a capital H.  .  . but there was no way around it. I was invited to attend a math workshop with the one and only, Kim Sutton. I know most people usually love her or hate her, I love all the loot I get when I go. 
Ha Ha I use it all in my classroom and I got to go with most of our vertical math team so it was fun. The sub, by the way, did not follow directions. At. all. (UGH)
And lastly, my oldest will be 8 years old on Monday. (SIGH) 
Wish I could keep my little princess little for longer. 
We are celebrating tomorrow so I better get some sleep.
