Flashback and Friday 5 and Giveaway Winners!

My Giveaway is over (kind of sad) and I have 3 lucky winners!!  Congrats to all of my winners, thanks to everyone who helped out and welcome to all of my new followers!! 

You're not going to believe this, but my friend down the hall won the K-2 Prize Pack, Jennifer Gonzales.
The 3rd-5th Grade Prize Pack is going to Janine Fernandez and the Clipart Prize Pack is going to Tara Witte!  I hope all of you enjoy your prizes and use them in your classroom.

Now, it's time for my Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching and Flashback Friday with Teaching Maddeness.  
 
#5) We played a review game on Monday for our upcoming STAAR Test.  I wanted to play Jeopardy (my projector is out, so I had to make something), but I had too many categories.  So, we played "Pocket Full of Questions" - cute huh?  The pockets have task cards in them.
#4)  These are pics from our 5th Grade Reading Teacher's Earth Day activity.  I thought they turned out great! 
   

#3) This is a new bulletin board I put up after testing.   It's a freebie from Down Under Teacher, click HERE to grab it:) 

#2) We began working on some 4th Grade TEKS this week.  I am diving into poetry.  It's not something I (feel like I) teach very well.  I'm trying very hard this year to send my kiddos onto 4th Grade with a solid poetry foundation.   We began using Teacher's Clubhouse's new Poetry Unit.  We finished our "Alliterainbow's" today and Monday we will begin making Simile Sandwiches!  My kiddos loved making the rainbows after doing oodles of reading passages!
  


#2) It's the end of the year (5 more Monday's) and my kiddos need more direction and classroom mngt. than they did at the beginning of the year!  So, I put up these signs today.  All of the groups did well (except my last class).   I cannot figure out who made this freebie...if it was you, please let me know!!  I think it was someone from a 1st Grade Blog.  

#1) My giveaway was a huge success (in my opinion)!  We had almost over 2,800 entries and there were some great prizes!  

This Little Piggy has 6 new fonts for you tomorrow!
