Five for Friday (Monday edition)

I know I'm a wee bit tardy for this party but I wanted to share some of my pictures from last week so I'm linking up with Kacey of Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday Linky party ~ Monday edition.
Last week I came to an epiphany.  I need to bring the F-U-N back into teaching.  The past few weeks have been CRAZY busy with assessments,  meetings, deadlines, report cards and blah, blah, blah.  I decided it was time to teach but with a little more PAZAZZ. 
Yes people. . . those are real goats.  My firsties were learning about the /oa/ sound so one of the first grade teachers brought in her goats.  My kids had soooooo many great questions, it was fun to see their minds at work.
Out with the old and in with the new.  Willie the Word Worm finally got his new outfit for the month of March.
Thursday was Thing Thursday.  I know I look like a hot mess of nonsense but my kids got a kick out of seeing me all Thinged up.   After writing time, they all got super excited when I told them that they were going to make their own outfit.
Come on. . . seriously, how cute are this little Things.  

So there you have a little peek into my week.  I hope that you get a chance to have some fun with your kids this week.   Well I'm off to procrastinate.  SHINE on everyone!!
