Field Trip Five for Friday

It's Friday, which means it's time for Doodle Bug's Five for Friday!


Let's Go!


I heart Instagram. I really do. I love getting little glimpses into other teachers' lives and classrooms. Seeing projects, dogs, lattes...it's all so much fun! In the last couple of weeks I've been following more teachers and in turn, they've been following me too. (Want to follow? Find me @first_grade_fo) Come on over, join the party! Some of my favorite hashtags to follow/participate in are #sharewhatchawear #teachertalktuesday #PADteacherchallenge and, of course, #firstgradefollies :)

Our alphabet countdown is getting smaller! This is from letter M day, when we made macaroni neckla
(Well, they were rotini, but we're not getting technical!)
I used neon food coloring and rubbing alcohol and was really pleased with the bright colors!


Our chrysalises are up in the butterfly box and we're anxiously awaiting our butterflies' arrival! I felt like MacGyver getting them up there...and even though they haven't hatched yet, I know I'll be sad to see them go. It's been neat to watch the life cycle take place in front of our eyes. 


We took our field trip today! We visited the Anderson-Hancock Planetarium at Marietta College and it was so cool! We also visited a local park and had a picnic lunch...complete with ducks, geese, & their babies!


Sweet notes like this make me so glad to be a teacher. 
I'm so lucky to be able to do what I do.
That being said, I'm also crazy-ready for summer break. 
9 more days!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
