Five for Friday

It has been about 3 weeks since I last linked up with Five for Friday {too much going on}.  Plus I keep forgetting to take pictures.  Just trying to survive all the craziness that the holidays bring.

A friend of my posted this on Facebook.   Oh my goodness, this young girl's voice is unbelievable!  Her voice and this song are both so beautiful.  When I watch her sing I am mesmerized at how such a powerful voice can come out of a small child.

I am lovin' all the Christmas themed book reports that are starting to come.  I had the kids to pick their favorite Christmas story and write a kid friendly report about their book.  My class really loves to make crafts.  So this works out perfectly, a little creativity involved with a little academics.  This is from my TpT shop, Christmas Tree Themed Book Reports.

My own little cutie came home from school with both of her front teeth missing.  She is officially snaggletooth, but it is sure cute!!!

Many schools, including mine, has Disguise the Turkey for Thanksgiving.  However, my grade host Disguise the Snowman.  These are a few pics of the snowmen coming in from my students.  Some of them are really creative.

We recently had Book Character Dress Up Day at my school.  This is an event that the entire school participates in.  You might wonder why a lot of my photos of my class is always pics of girls.  Well, most of my class is girls {poor boys}.  I only have a hand full of boys in my class.  Believe me, there can be major drama with 7-8 year old girls {but I love em' anyways}.

As always thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  I can't wait to read your Five for Friday.   I {heart} comments and followers!!

  5. Jamie, I just found your blog today and watched the video of Jackie singing. You are totally write - what a voice! Before I became a teacher, I was a music major for four years. After listening to her, I think I'm going to give up singing. :) Thank you so much for sharing!
