5 for Friday

I didn't get much done in the classroom this week considering I didn't have school!! This gets me started on my first point... 
How bout' that snow folks?? I believe when it was all said and done, we received around 15-18 inches of snow since Sunday.  Cuhhrazzaay!! I have to say, I have enjoyed the time off, playing in the snow, catching up on day time television, etc... I miss my kiddos though! 

Here is the view of my street. Crazy huh?? And we actually got a little bit more throughout that night and the next day! 

My assistant principal, neighbor, and friend. We took advantage of the beautiful snow, and we decided to go sleigh riding! :D

Okay.. so you know those people who cook then post like every picture on instagram?  Well if you don't know a person like that.. now you do.. because I have turned into one. During this snow, I have gotten creative with my "clean eating". I have found all sorts of neat recipes on Pinterest.  Boredom set in.. check them out! :) 

Granola with almonds, strawberries, & bananas for breakfast. 

Oatmeal, organic peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies.

Honey Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
3 Ingredient Ice cream: bananas, cocoa, peanut butter.
Clean, flour-less brownies. (Bananas, cocoa, peanut butter, maple syrup) 
Two words: Rubik's Cube!
Yes.. I did this. Never in my 29 years have I been able to do this without peeling off and replacing the stickers lol.. Thank you Snowmageddon. 

Okay.. Now for something teacher related. 
A few months ago, I was asked to be a guest writer on kidblog.org's website/blog.  I recently was published on their website. Please go read the post. It offers information on their amazing product.  I truly am a believer!! :) 

I have had an overwhelming amount of teachers download my "Cite Evidence" resource.  I believe it is because it truly is an easy way for students to learn to cite evidence from the text they read.  With the new state standards, they are required to provide evidence from text, and this resource is a valuable tool for teachers. I use it everyday in my classroom! Use the link below to learn more!

That's all folks.  I didn't have too much teacher information to share this week since I have been stuck in the house, but I am glad to have gotten to share my week with you! Stay warm, friends! :) 


  1. I love your food pictures! It all looks so good :) I am in TN and we have had more snow than I think I have ever seen! I can't imagine 15-18 inches...holy cow!!!

    1. It is the most snow I have ever seen!! Craziness!!

  2. I did a little stalking to see where you are in West Virginia. We traveled to Snowshoe for about 12 years straight when my kids were little. It's a long drive from Alabama, but we loved going there to ski! Now, whenever I see snow going across your state I think of the resort! Love your food pictures!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

    1. Hey Carol.. We are quite a distance from Snowshoe. I have been there once. So much fun! You will have to journey to West Virginia again to check out the ski slopes :) I love your blog, btw. I followed you on Bloglovin! Looking forward to seeing more about your science instruction!
