Five for Friday: Week 1 of Summer Break!

I am SO glad it is summer time.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job.  I love my students.  I love everything about being a teacher....and that includes my summers off. 

So what have I done while on this break (my whole week off so far??)  I thought I would link up with Doodlebugs for her weekly Five for Friday and tell you all about it!

Oh...and it is 300 pages, not 70!
First off, I have been busy trying to get a bit of school work done.  The first thing I was able to do was to update the 5th Grade Calendar Math Starter Kit.  It now reflects the 2014-2015 school if you have it already, make sure you go over to your TpT account  (in "My Purchases") and redownload it. 

I have to say, that I am loving it with the new CCSS standards.  The kids showed such growth and I KNOW it is from Calendar. (though, if you have read my blog, you know how much I love that thing!!)

We went to our first beach day of the summer this week.  It was a bit overcast, but we had so much fun!  The kids are so that Pacific Ocean is freezing!!!  But they were boogie boarding and building sandcastles and having a blast.....and I got sunburnt.  Whomp, whomp.

Disneyland was also on our agenda this week.  Just me and the little girl this time.  We had so much fun on our girl date!  (and on a side note, for nursing moms, the First Aid center will check in your pump for you so you don't have to get a locker for it!)
The Aquarium was also on our list of places to visit this week.  I guess when we are home from school we can't sit around and do nothing!  Our family always seems to be on the go!!  It was fun, and my kids fed the birds (with the birds landing on them and everything)  I even got to pet a horseshoe crab!   So it was a memorable experience for all!

Finally, our week began with a One Republic concert at the Hollywood Bowl.  A whole bunch of teacher friends and I went...and we had a blast!  Singing and dancing to the bands, with 16,000 of our closest could you not have fun??  ;) Here I am with one of my kinder buddies, Jen. 

So there you have it.  My first week of summer break.  If this is any indication of the rest of my summer, I can't wait to see what is in store!

(and if you follow me on Instagram, you have probably already seen these pics!  If not, come on over and join me!)


  1. What a wonderful start to your summer vacation! I still have 1.5 weeks! I would love to more about your math activities! :)

  2. Now that sounds like a great first week off! :)

  3. I purchased your calendar math set for the 2013-2014 school year and wanted to say what a difference it made!!! My kids were constantly practicing their key skills (some of which were mastered before they were formally taught in class) and they enjoyed it! For the sake of time, I would use one worksheet a week and they would do a few boxes per day-- it still worked wonders! Our state assessment scores improved dramatically. I am convinced Calendar Math holds a lot of responsibility for this improvement. Thank you!!

  4. That sounds like one fun week!! I am still waiting for swimming lessons to be over and then we'll truly have a free week :). I want thr feeling of...wait, what day is it ;)
