Hogwarts 5 for Friday

Hey everyone!  Click the link below to join in the fun of Five for Friday by Doodle Bugs Teaching.


I'm doing a bit of a flash back.  I never posted about our end of the year party back in May.
My class celebrated with our End of the Year STEM party.  It was themed Harry Potter/Hogwarts.
We had the following stations:
*Caramel sorting hat creation
*Gringott's Bank vault trolley engineering
*Potions class
*Diagon Alley math/buying of items

My last day was May 25th.  It's been a month of break so far, and now I have about 5 weeks left before we begin our PD.  I have a lot to do in the room.
I left my room a disaster!  I will start working on that fun stuff in awhile but for right now I am organizing a planner I won from Sheila Jane Teaching.  If you don't know who she is... check out .  She is a Teach Happy guru!  Being a Teach Happy Member, I find I am thinking about things differently lately.  If you need to re-establish or find your happier teacher-self, check it out.

The last week of school in May, I did a special surprise Pirate Day!  I wanted to send them off with one last "hurrah" of a theme.  It was so much fun!

I am working on the Professional Development presentation that I will do for the staff at my school, in regards to Ron Clark Academy.  There is so much information to organize.  So much that is hard to express in words.  I will have it completed by the end of July, as that is when I will share it with my principal.  Wish me luck in finding the right words and ways to make the impact that I feel is so necessary for the information I learned.

Anyone know about Meow Wolf?  It is the craziest "museum" place ever.  I don't know how to explain it, so go look at pictures {HERE} to get an idea.  Our family loved it!!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!!
