Five for Friday {Nashville, Numbers to 120, Daily 5, Labor Day Sale & More}

fiveforfriday2 
Thank you sweet Jesus for the 3 day weekend. I'm tired...and sleeping in sounds better than a million bucks right now. Not kidding.
Here's a random recap of my week...
{1} 
Happy 1st Birthday, Rosie!!
My sweet family and I went to Nashville to celebrate my niece's first birthday! My sister did such a cute job planning and decorating for the party. Best part {other than being with my whole family}- they had a snowball truck in their backyard...yum.yum.yum.

P's First Homework Assignment
We had a huge milestone moment in our house this week....Parker had his first homework assignment! We had to put pictures of things our family loved around the letter B {for Brantley}. He was so excited about it, which melted my mama heart:)

Daily 5 Coaching!
Our Daily 5 stamina is getting stronger by the minute. One of my favorite parts of Read to Someone is the time or coaching strategy. I made bookmarks with our reading strategies to help them coach each other. You can grab your free copy {here}!

Numbers to 120!  


My firsties are having fun learning all about numbers to 120. I'm using many of the activities and games in my Numbers to 120 math unit.
 
{5}
Thundercake!
 
Yesterday, we read and made Thundercake to add a sweet touch to our weather unit! We cooked it in my Crock Pot, so our classroom smelled like chocolate heaven!!!
Crock Pot Thunder Cake: {recipe found here}
1 package chocolate cake mix (a no pudding added one)
8 oz. sour cream
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
1 cup water
4 beaten eggs
¾ cup oil
1 small box of chocolate pudding

Directions: Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into a crockpot and cook on high for about 2 1/2 hours. Don't let it burn! Use a large spoon to take out. Put on paper plates. Top with whipped cream.

I hope you enjoy your 3 day weekend!! I'm having a little 20% off Labor Day sale in my TpT shop tomorrow to celebrate!

Anna, can you explain the Numbers to 120 activity? Are they cutting up parts and putting it together? I did purchase your number unit. Thanks!

Hey Nshade21! The picture is of a number chart puzzle activity in my Numbers to 120 unit. The students cut apart their puzzle {I have different levels of difficulty in the packet} and put them back together. There is a direction page for the puzzles to give you more information. Thanks so much for your purchase!! :)Anna
