Five for Friday and a 100 Visa gift card??? Whaaaaa???

This is a hugeeee Five for Friday teachers!! ...Well the huge part comes at the end...but maybe, sort of, kind of, you can read the rest of this post too... :)

Math fun this week included a little review on geometry and fractions. These activities are oldies but goodies. We built 3-D models with candy and toothpicks. They used MnM's to write the fraction of each color in their packet. And they created fraction caterpillars with fuzz balls. Love this chapter in math!!

I recently started making encouraging my 11 year old daughter to use her artistic talents to try to create clipart. She just started this past weekend and this is what she has accomplished so far.These are three sets I have up on my TPT shop and they are freeeeeee. 

So she still has to learn the program a little better. One of the things we are having trouble with is how to save each PNG file so that it only saves the image and not the entire page that the image was drawn on. Meaning, she saves it and then when I  import it into Powerpoint, the box around the image that you can make bigger or smaller to change the size of the image, comes out really large, and not just the size of the image itself. Does that make sense? She is using Art Studio on the Ipad and if anyone has any helpful hints, please let me know. 

My poor little baby girl got this horrible infection behind her ear. When we took her to the doctor, they said it was a regular inner ear infection that spread out. We had no idea and she never even complained! I'd show a picture, but it's gross. I picked her up from the babysitter early this week and her hair was cut on one side! The babysitter's mom noticed the infection and decided to cut off one side of hair so that it stopped irritating her. So then we were left with lopsided hair. I didn't want the other side to be just as short, so instead we went to the hair cutter's and she did this know...the rocker chic style...long on one side and short on another. Well, I def. think she is rocking it!

No, I didn't skip number 4. It's just that this last thing is sooooo huge that it deserved two spots on this week's list. That...and maybe I ran out of pictures to share. have to click on the image below to take you to the blog post where my Primary Peeps and I got together to give away a $100 Visa gift card!! Wouldn't that just be amazing??? I would just spend it all on TPT products or clipart for the new year. So pleaseeee click on the picture to take you where you can enter the Rafflecopter!!


  1. I'll have to check out Art Studio. I do my clipart on a free program on the PC called It lets you change your canvas size and crop to fit closer to the image to fix that box issue when you go to power point.

    1. Thank you so much for the insight! Maybe I can do something similar on Art Studio too.
