Five for Friday (Actually on a Friday!)

Five for Friday.... on a Friday!  Can you believe it?  Here's some highlights from my week!


I'm working on an Ignite presentation I will be giving in a few weeks.  The topic is "passion".  My speech has morphed into a "focus on what brings you energy" talk.  I'm really excited about this.

If you don't know what Ignite is, it is similar to a Ted Talk.  The differences are that it is 5 minutes long and you prepare 20 slides that automatically change every 15 seconds.  That part freaks me out a bit!  I'm going to really need to be on the ball!

On Thursday one of my students brought me surprise chai latte to say thanks for helping her with her science fair project.  The grade 4s in my district get 6 swimming lessons.  I got to drink the chai while watching them swim.  I was so proud of the new skills they are learning and got to sip this tasty drink while doing it.  Lovely start to the day.  


The student mentioned above is doing her science fair project on if chlorine really works.  Each day we go to the pool, she is taking samples and attempting to grow bacteria.  I'm happy to see that so far we aren't growing anything!  

I love that I am able to share my science knowledge with these kiddos.  So proud of this big project she has taken on also. 
Tonight my Facebook page rolled over from 99 to 100 likes!  How exciting!


I'm going to wrap this up with a little freebie for you all!  Enjoy.

Happy Friday! Thanks Doodlebugs Teaching for hosting the linky week after week.
