Five for Friday!

The flu bug finally hit me. Wowza! It knocked me on my patootie.  I haven't been this sick since who knows when.  Totally zapped my energy.  I finally returned to work on Thursday and found this sweet note waiting for me.
If there is one thing I know for sure, it's that my little ones at school always make me feel so LOVED.  :)
While I was home, my amazing Valerie took over.  She read "If You Give a Pig a Pancake" and "If You Give a Moose a Muffin".  They made these art projects to go along with the books.  I think they turned out fantastic.

We added both to our bulletin board.  I am loving it!
Today was our last day of reading the Laura Numeroff/Felicia Bond "If You Give" books. We decorated party hats with stickers to spell our names and also added some other fun stuff. It's hard to peel stickers from the paper so it was a great fine motor workout!
I love the concentration on their faces!
After reading "If You Give a Pig a Party", we partied!  {Duh, of course!}  The classes voted for their favorite food from the books.  Donuts was the big winner!  So, we had donuts and apple juice, wore our hats, blew party horns and bubbles.

As one of my morning sweeties stated, "It's gonna be off the hook!" and it was.  :)
Last weekend I had the opportunity to meet up with some of my very good friends.  I love spending time with my girlfriends!  There is nothing better.  :)
Love my girls.  :)
What was your week like?  Link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to let us know.
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
