Five for Friday Linky Party {February 15}

I'm linking up again with Kasey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five For Friday Linky Party.  I've been looking forward to this each week!

We had the opportunity to meet Cecil Shorts III, wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Yes, we live in Ohio, but he went to the University of Mount Union, which is in our town.  He signed autographs for the all the kids.  One of my students said she didn't like his team because only "likes the Aviators" (our school mascot).  We tried to explain that it was 2 different kinds of teams, but only the Aviators would do for her.  :)

We used my Sweetheart Math Freebie on Thursday for our math time. My students were so engaged and thrilled by their 11 little candy hearts.  They couldn't get enough of it.  I love that they practiced math skills and were more excited than I thought they'd be!

We had this little Love Bug for breakfast on Valentine's Day.  Our party wasn't until today (Friday), so we needed a little bit of festivity on Valentine's Day itself.  It is made from: a slice of white bread cut out with a heart-shaped cookie cutter, a strawberry marshmallow, mini chocolate chips, cheerios and raspberry jam.  The kiddos gave their stamp of approval!

I got this puzzle as a gift for Valentine's Day.  It was found on clearance at our local WalMart.  There is a butterfly life cycle puzzle as well as a solar system puzzle.  I love the facts shown around the puzzle.

We had a great time at our Valentine's Day party today.  A favorite activity was stacking conversation hearts into "towers".  Our classroom record was 11 hearts.

We are off Monday and will be beginning a new unit on Community Helpers on Tuesday.  What are you planning next week?
