Five for Friday! {April 8, 2016}

Well I started this post last weekend and got side tracked and never finished it... and then the same thing almost happened this weekend! But I remembered I never finished it and well better late than never.. I'm linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs with 5 random things from the past two weeks since I started this post last weekend. :)

Last week we read The Three Billy Goats Fluff and completed lots of activities from Deanna and Deedee's Guiding Readers April pack.  We LOVE Guiding Readers!!! I love the adjectives they came up with to describe Mr. Troll! 

For April Fool's Day I made my kids some "Brown E's" and told them that morning that I had spent my night before making some brown e's for them and told them I would pass them out after lunch. I got some very puzzled looks when I passed them out and they weren't impressed. I said you mean you don't like them?? I worked so hard on them! One sweetie said "Of course we like them! Thank you for this!" HA Later I did pass out some real brownies for them being such good sports! :)  I also gave them a word search that didn't have any of the words in it! :) I've been doing that for the past several years and the kids are completely fooled and they think that is the best trick ever! 

This week we read Tops and Bottoms. Another super cute book! We also completed more of Deedee and Deanna's April Guiding Readers activities. We did a little tops and bottoms taste test on Friday and then did a class vote to see which was the favorite. Tops it was!

Eric got 6 baby chicks the other day.. and they are so stinkin' cute! 

We found the first dry land fish for this year! Just enough to make us NEED some more because they are so darn yummy! We love them! Do you have them where you live?? 

Well friends that's all I've got for now. Don't forget to link up with Kacey if your like me and still haven't! ;)

Have a great week!!
