5 for Friday - Interactive Notebook Fun!

 Here's my 5 for Friday post - two weeks in a row!


So I took this Monday off in celebration of my birthday, and the hubs and I took a wonderful trip to the mountains of Brevard, NC. My husband is a total "survivor man," and we have all the nifty gear we need to make our time in nature enjoyable and relaxing. Of course we had to stop by REI in Asheville. We picked up some solar energy phone chargers - can't wait to try them out!

We had some more weather fun in our Spanish interactive notebooks.  It's been really yucky this week, so practicing our cloudy and foggy expressions was perfect.


On Wednesday I had something super special and "unico" happen to me. I received a birthday card from my little brother who is studying in Chicago. Inside was a handwritten poem not just to me but also about me. I've actually never had anybody write anything about me that I can remember. It really meant a lot.

He would hate for me to share this publicly probably, but I seriously doubt he'll ever find this post.

It was a best bud's birthday this week, so I made a new fall design of personalized Little Buwo cards for her. Find them at Etsy in English and Spanish.


I had one of the coolest learning experiences happen this week. I'll explain it more in-depth hopefully in a future post, but here's basically what happened:
  1. Students created very short vocabulary presentations with the 30hands app on five weather instruments we are reviewing. Here's an example.
  2. I created QR codes that linked to the presentations.
  3. We pasted them in our science interactive notebooks.
  4. Students studied at home for a quiz by scanning and listening to each others presentations. Pretty much awesome sauce! Today I gave them a few minutes to review and they were all scanning and listening to the vocabulary over and over again.

I hope you all had a great week! Please have a great weekend!
