Friday Favorites

Friday is heeeeere! πŸ™‚ I always get so excited on Fridays. I love them. πŸ™‚ Five of my favorites from the week are below! xo

One. I’ve really been trying to add more hands-on activities in the classroom. Students seem to really struggle in 5th grade with understanding what a fraction actually is. They can add them, subtract, multiply, and divide them, but to really understand what a fraction is…is very different. I found these foam circles last year and got so excited to use them right away! I had students compare fractions with the foam pieces so they could visually see the difference, instead of just on paper. They loved it. πŸ™‚

Two.I love our church so much. It does an amazing job of reaching out locally and globally. Two weeks ago, they asked everyone to help, “stuff the truck.” There was a large truck that a volunteer was driving to help with the hurricane. The truck was packed and the church gave so much! I love how giving everyone is. πŸ™‚

Three.I mentioned yesterday on Instagram how I was making Blueberry Crisp (which I ate yesterday morning with my Grandma). So sweet! πŸ™‚ You can also find a twist on Blueberry Crisp with my Blueberry Crumble recipe, here!Β 

Four.

In case you needed this reminder today. πŸ™‚

Five.There’s nothing quite like putting some fresh soap on the sink and loooooving the scent. I bought these three scents (basil,Β honeysuckle,Β lavender)Β and love each and every one! It’s the little things in life. πŸ˜‰ Happy Friday friends!
