Five for Friday

First week back from break is finally over! What an exhausting week! Wanted to make a blog post about something we did in class but I forgot to take pictures of the writing so next week it is! For now...another linky party! :)

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

5 Random Things About This Week
Happy New Year!
1. In class, we wrote our New Years resolutions and took pictures with a hat and party blower. Happy New Year!

Meet Claude, the albino alligator!
2. We went on a field trip on Wednesday to the Academy of Science in San Francisco. A parent from a different first grade class works at the Academy of Science and generously donated this field trip to all the first grade classes. Such a generous donation! The kids had a lot of fun.

3. I made some pecan tarts for a crust party I went to over the weekend. Still had tons of filling left so I finished baking the rest of the pecan tarts last night and then brought them to school. I brought a big ziplock bag of them to school. They were all gone when school was over!

4. I watched Les Miserables this week. WONDERFUL movie. If you are into musicals I definitely recommend it! I hope it wins a lot of Oscars. It definitely deserves it!
5. My mom got me the Wii Just Dance 4 bundle in an attempt to get me to exercise more at home, haha. And it arrived today! Kind of excited to try dancing it out! I was always interested in getting a Wii. Finally got it!

Happy weekend!

    1. I tried out Just Dance last night and it was pretty interesting. It can definitely give me the workout and exercise that I have been neglecting for a while. A crust party was basically a party where you either bring or make things that have crusts. Thanks for the follow! :)

  2. What a wonderful field trip your students got to experience! I might just have to try those pecan tarts. They look delicious! Are they easy to make? I am your newest follower!

    1. The pecan tarts are actually quite easy to make. I think it actually takes longer to bake than to prepare. You can find the recipe I used < here.
