five for friday linky Feb 15 edition

It's Friday...can we say Thank the Lord?!
It's not just me, is it??
Phew, action packed week!
So here goes.
I'm linking up with DBT again for Five for Friday.

On Tuesday we made our monster v-day pockets. Last year I put them on bags, but I didn't have time or want to go pick some we improvised. I love the colors! Check out Lindsay's All you need is love pack for these! And I may have spent 30 minutes writing their names on them...

today took the cake...right out of me! We had our annual Itty Bitty City event. You can read more about it here and see tons of pictures from years past here, but here's a shot of one of my kiddos doing nails. See her "smock". Her mom let her put paint on it the night before so she'd look professional! And yes, a pack to purchase is on the way...just a few peeps have asked!

On Wednesday night, Little Lamb and I prepped the Minute to Win It games from Sarah Cooley's pack. They LOVED it to say the least! I loved that the same ol' kids didn't win! It was a hoot! I found it funny my 4-year old could do them and some 8-year olds could not...

 I'm moving in reverse this week. Here's a part of our Chinese New Year festivities on Monday. I snatched up 2 12-packs of fortune cookies at the Dollar Tree {holla} and knew we could come up with something educational! I decided to introduce our graphing unit with a tally chart and convert to this pictograph. I'm on the NO side... We also used our lucky numbers to practice addition and had lots of fun trying to infer what the fortunes meant!
We also did our math hunt (and some still aren't finished!), watched Ruby's Wish on Tumblebooks and did a comparison with GWC, and learned some fast facts about China.

and we are getting really close to 1000 followers on this little blog! I've got a treasure trove of fabulous bloggers ready to give the goods to you soon! So make sure you are a follower so you'll know!
